South Lake Tahoe’s Whiskey Dick’s Saloon will host a night of irie reggae vibes this weekend.

Zion Roots plays a free show at the South Shore bar Saturday night.

“Audiences love dancing and swaying to the music of Zion Roots as they perform all the reggae standards made famous by Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff and then break into high-energy calypso for some hot dancing,” according to a description of the band. “Zion Roots was created in the mystic Santa Cruz mountains when two Rasta countrymen from the Caribbean Isle of Dominica, Nicolas Gregoire and Jus Lewis, both musicians, met up in 1999 and began making their own reggae music. Infusing a positive Rasta message of peace and love in a roots reggae style, Zion Roots performs to packed houses at a variety of festivals, clubs, and private events through out Northern California, the San Francisco Bay Area, Santa Cruz, San Jose, and has opened for major reggae artists such as Culture, Pato Banto, The Wailers and The Itals just to name a few.”

The show is part of a series of free shows at Whiskey Dick’s on Saturday nights featuring local and regional talent. Tahoe Blue Vodka drink specials will be offered all night long Saturday.

Whiskey Dick’s Saloon is located at 2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.
