Valhalla festival is ending Friday

Provided to the Tribune

The Valhalla Arts & Music Festival ends a successful season Friday with an outdoor concert on the Valhalla lawn by The GG Amos Band for the public, and a pre-show potluck and barbecue for festival volunteers and Tahoe Tallac Association members.

The potluck and barbecue begins at 5:30 p.m. and the public invited at 7 p.m. The GG Amos Band will play at 7:30 p.m.

Producing 30 performances of theater, film and music in 60 days, the 2005 Valhalla Festival season featured 10 sold-out performances, free Shakespeare for children, three benefit concerts, two dances, and the first-ever outdoor night concert at Valhalla.

The season finale will be the second time the festival has staged an open-air concert at night on the Valhalla lawn.

The GG Amos Band plays an electrifying mix of roadhouse-style blues, soul and funky jazz that is sure to get an audience dancing.

With an emphasis on soulful, high energy performances, and real communication with the audience, The GG Amos Band has earned a reputation as top notch entertainers, playing with the likes of blues greats John Lee Hooker, Guitar Shorty, Duffy Bishop and Koko Taylor, among others.
