Regular pairs of jeans, only shorter, will be celebrated at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort this weekend. The resort will host Jorts Jam 2016 all-day Saturday, April 8. Organizers encourage participants to don their favorite pair of jean shorts and head out to the mountain for a Jorts Catwalk that will take place at 3 p.m. It will include prizes for the best outfits.

Live music also starts at 1 p.m. and will include sounds by the Grateful Bluegrass Boys and Swamp Zen.

“Grateful Bluegrass Boys is a string band that plays traditional bluegrass versions of classic rock favorites from bands such as the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Eagles, Rolling Stones and more,” according to the band’s online biography. “These songs, combined with classic bluegrass and country tunes, consistently have audiences singing and dancing along the whole show.”

Swamp Zen also draws on a wide variety of influences to kick out the jams.

“Swamp Zen combines the funk of James Brown, the song writing of Van Morrison and the winding improvisation of the Grateful Dead to create their own brand of original dance music,” according to their online biography. “They honor the jam band tradition by never playing a song the same way twice, but are consistent in their superb musicianship and in delivering a high-energy show that always brings people to the dance floor. Their music is never boring as it moves seamlessly between styles including funk, jazz, Latin, country, techno, reggae, and more.”

Sierra-at-Tahoe is located at 1111 Sierra at Tahoe Road in Twin Bridges.
