SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Live at Lakeview Summer Music Series returns next week.

The ninth season kicks off from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5, at Lakeview Commons on El Dorado Beach.

The free, weekly concert series that began in 2012 is back after a year and a half, and will host five total events that’ll conclude around Labor Day.

The event is sponsored by the city of South Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Wellness Center and On Course events.

“After a year and a half of not being able to produce concerts for our community, it’s a beautiful thing to see live music making a comeback,” said On Course Events Director of Marketing Leslie Shultz. “The support we’ve received from our event sponsors and vendors has made this short season of events possible. We’re so grateful for this community and excited to provide free shows on the beach once again.”

The event will feature live music and art on El Dorado Beach, with local merchants and new food truck options with amphitheater style seating and beautiful views of the lake from the beer garden.

Festivities begin at 4:30 pm, with Boot Juice and Preacher’s Pickers opening up the event.

“We’re thrilled for Boot Juice and Preacher’s Pickers to open up the long overdue return of Live at Lakeview,” Schultz said. “It’s the perfect group of artists to set the tone for the good vibes and high energy we’ll be delivering to this community for the reminder of the summer.”

According to Music Connection Magazine, “Boot Juice delivers modern American and retro-country, they can go from graceful to gritty at the drop of a cowboy hat.”

Their music will compliment the Preacher’s Pickers perfectly through their own love of folk and classic rock.

This year, the On Course events team is encouraging participation in weekly beach and park cleanups hosted at the Lakeview Commons Monday mornings starting Aug. 2 in an increased effort to take care of the environment that hosts so many fun events.
