South Shore is welcoming a night of reggae at Whiskey Dick's Saloon on Saturday, April 15, with performances from Sacramento-based Riotmaker and local band LIZANO.

"Riotmaker's first release, 'The Sun Has Set on California,' originally a solo project, offers everything from chill reggae to a heavy rock vibe, creating a sound that is unique and appealing to fans of any genre," states the group's online biography.

While the album has a relaxed feel, audiences can look forward to an energized show.

"When performed live though, the group's talented lineup gives more of an edge and emotional energy to the songs, and truly takes the music to another level. Riotmaker is a standout collection of musicians, songs, thoughts, emotions and moments in time, all coming together to create one of Sacramento's most exciting live bands," continues the bio.

LIZANO joins Riotmaker for the Saturday night gig, bringing a fusion of funk and reggae.

"This original sound transformed from its original roots of covering bands like Pepper, Sublime and The Expendables while touring Central America, until they blended with funk, jazz and rock influences here stateside," states LIZANO's online biography.

"The struggles of spreading music on the road are real, but being able to reach people in the most meaningful way they know how to, LIZANO is dedicated to bringing its high energy act and positive message everywhere they can."

Catch the two groups beginning at 9 p.m. Whiskey Dick's Saloon is located at 2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd.
