South Shore’s Taking Root plays everything from Jimmy Cliff to Slightly Stoopid. The group formed in 2014 and has been a staple of the South Shore music scene.
“Taking Root is a reggae/ska/rock band from South Lake Tahoe, California, [that] can play three hours of cover songs and one hour of originals,” according to the band’s online biography at http://takingrootmusic.weebly.com. “We play classic reggae like Bob Marley, modern reggae like Sublime and we also play [alternative] and classic rock songs with our own reggae twist. We have played over 100 gigs last year and have been able to read and play to the crowd well. Our set can be played to an upbeat dance party or mellowed out to nice ambient music. We consist of up to five members who have been in the local music scene for 10-plus years as professional musicians.”
Rancid, Matisyahu, the Clash, Ben Harper and the Police are also among the group’s influences.
“Our focus is to make our fans enjoy themselves and have fun,” according to the bio.
Lakeside Inn and Casino is located at 168 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
