Live at Lakeview gets funky this Thursday, Aug. 11, with Big Sticky Mess and Boca Do Rio beginning at 4:30 p.m. at Lakeview Commons. The concert is a type of reunion for the bands, who played together in Brazil this March.

“This past year we’ve had the opportunity to perform in beautiful locations around the world, but still haven’t found a venue as scenic as the Lakeview stage,” Patrick Langham of Big Sticky Mess said in an On Course Events press release. “We’re ecstatic to return as a headliner and turn the beach into a funky dance party.”

Big Sticky Mess has performed multiple times on the South Shore stage, but this is their first headlining appearance. Boco Do Rio makes their Tahoe debut opening for the Live at Lakeview veterans.

“The Mess is here bringing a kaleidoscopic mix of extraterrestrial hooks, vibrant grooves and potent beats, purely for your entertainment. Close your eyes and hear the funky jams reminiscent of decades past with a sound much larger than the three piece arrangement before you should allow,” according to the release.

Northern California-based Boco Do Rio gets the crowd ready with its own take on funk music, delivering a “unique blend of pop hooks, pleasing vocal harmonies, funky rhythms and African percussion with contemporary beats,” according to the release.

The fun begins at 4:30 p.m. Admission is free and Lakeview Commons is located at the intersection of Highway 50 and Lakeview Avenue.

Parking is limited, but the venue offers a free bike valet service every Thursday.
