Bluegrass is the theme of Thursday’s Live at Lakeview. Kicking off the afternoon at 4:30 p.m. is a performance by Bison — a band specializing in free-range, organic bluegrass and American roots music. Headlining the show is Grateful Bluegrass Boys, who will take the stage after the local favorites, playing traditional bluegrass versions of classic rock hits.

“Grateful Bluegrass Boys will perform music from Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, The Eagles and more, all played through a bluegrass lens as the sun sets,” according to a press release from On Course Events.

“These songs, combined with classic bluegrass and country tunes, consistently have audiences singing and dancing along the whole show,” according to the release.

As parking is limited, biking and carpooling are encouraged. Live at Lakeview offers a complimentary bike valet each week. South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center, located at 1601 Rufus Allen Blvd., offers additional parking.

Show up before the music begins for Happy Hour in the Beer Garden, which offers $1 off beer and wine until 5 p.m. Proceeds support the South Tahoe BMX Association.

Bison and Grateful Bluegrass Boys play Lakeview Commons, on the corner of Lakeview Avenue and Highway 50, starting at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 4. Admission is free.
