The nation’s premier Sublime tribute band takes the stage in South Lake Tahoe for the first time on Sunday, Dec. 11. Joined by Tahoe natives Taking Root, 40 Oz. to Freedom has toured the United States and Canada for over six years and has established one of the largest tribute band followings in the world.

“40 Oz. to Freedom is true to the SoCal vibe with thumping bass lines, rad beats and shredding guitar riffs, topped off with soul-quenching vocals,” states a press release from Late-Nite Productions.

Audiences over the age of 21 are invited to attend the tribute band’s gig, which begins at 9 p.m. Advance tickets are available for $10 online at http://www.ticketweb.com, and tickets will be for sale at the door for $15.

“Enjoy the sounds of Sublime with the greatest hits from now and then,” states the release.

40 Oz. to Freedom won the 2010 San Diego Music Award for Best Tribute.

Reggae band Taking Root will also perform on Sunday night. The four-man ensemble formed in 2014 and draws inspiration from artists including Bob Marley and Slightly Stoopid.

“We add alternative and classic rock songs to our repertoire with our own reggae twist,” according to Taking Root’s Facebook biography.

Whiskey Dick’s Saloon is located at 2660 Lake Tahoe Boulevard. For additional information about the gig, visit http://www.facebook.com/whiskeydickstahoe.
