If you go
What: Pato Banton and the Now Generation
When: 9 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14
Where: Whiskey Dick’s Saloon
Reggae will cap off Valentine’s Day in South Lake Tahoe this weekend.
The One Love Valentine’s Day Reggae Celebration will feature a performance by Pato Banton and the Now Generation this Sunday at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon.
Banton has released more than a dozen albums during his career, which started in Birmingham, England.
“Positive Vibrations abound with a beat to keep you on your dancing feet, while Pato delivers a message that is food for the mind and soul,” according to his online biography. “Many have considered his charismatic performance as live theatre where no show is alike and audience members become participants in the experience. Pato dialogues with the crowd on a range of topics including current day events and spiritual freedom while keeping the vibes upbeat and fun!
“The direction of the concert is totally based on the feedback Pato receives from the audience as there is no fixed set list. Many have said that the positivity generated from the stage has changed their lives forever. Sometimes Pato invites his fans to join him in a prayer circle after the show, where some have cried while sharing their stories of contemplated suicide, isolation after losing a loved one, struggles with substance abuse and how their personal connection with Pato has given them the strength to ‘Stay Positive’ and ‘Never Give In.’”
Roots, rock and reggae group Squarefied Massive is scheduled to open the show. Tickets are $15 advance at The Spot, Whiskey Dick’s and http://www.ticketweb.com. Tickets are $20 the day of the show. Whiskey Dick’s Saloon is located at 2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.
