South Shore’s Taking Root plays a free show at the South Lake Tahoe bar Saturday night.

“Taking Root is a reggae/ska/rock band from South Lake Tahoe, California,” according to the band’s online biography. “We have a variety of songs ranging from classic to current reggae and Top 40 hits with over three hours of cover songs and originals. Our set list includes classic reggae songs from Bob Marley to modern reggae hits like Slightly Stoopid, Dirtyheads, Sublime and Rebelution. Taking Root also plays alternative and classic rock songs with our own reggae twist. Our band has played well over 150 gigs to date and enjoys interacting and playing to the crowd. We consist of four members who have been in the local music scene for 10-plus years as accomplished and serious musicians.”

The group includes, Warren Martineau (bass), Molly DeLallo (vocals) and Zephyr Uber (guitar). Elijah Hixenbaugh (drums).

“Elijah Hixenbaugh plays drums and percussion and has played in many successful bands from the Tahoe area,” according to the bio. “He has toured the U.S. and Canada on the Warped Tour after completing two self-organized tours up and down the West Coast. He played and toured with F.B.I., Anxiety (Warped Tour), the Hecklers, The Elko’s (Shaun Palmer’s band), Bionic Gorilla Project, Hyenas, Cash Only, Screaming Meg (second place in Hard Rock’s Battle of the bands), Rise Up (Bob Marley tribute band), and has been a fill in drummer for many other local bands.”
