Springtime at Sierra is the best! Soft turns, warm weather, and outdoor concerts on our brand new plaza deck! We’re kicking off the Equinox Spring Festival with a huge party tomorrow as The Soft White Sixties rock the slopes for our concert of the Live at Grandview Music Series. Local Favorites, Vokab Kompany will be opening up the show at 2:00 pm. This will be the first of three free, outdoor concerts that aim to bring the great vibes of the local’s summertime favorite, Live at Lakeview, to the slopes.
The Soft White Sixties were named as one of Paste Magazine’s “Top 25 Shows at SXSW” and they are just returning from rocking their third season at the popular Austin, TX festival. While they are considered to be a jam band the lead singer, Octavio Genera, told our friends at Tahoe Onstage, “It was never meant to be a jam band; it was meant to be song focused. It’s never been a jam (planned) for the set,” he said. “It’s a lot better when it happens naturally. It’s always more enjoyable when we don’t plan for that to happen.”
Their new album, “Get Right” was released in early March as an organic collection of soul-driven anthems, heart-felt choruses, sticky grooves, and clever arrangements. Like the object after which The Soft White Sixties are named, this band shines!
The Soft White Sixties will be joined by some Good Kompany as San Diego’s Vokab Kompany opens up the show at 2:00 pm. Vokab Kompany is made up of two MC/singers, backed by their 4 piece band of awesome. Their live show combines multiple synths/keys with bass/drums to create a sound that doesn't quite adhere to a specific genre, but seems to fit the bill with several.
Every time Vokab comes to town they are welcomed with a huge crowd in true Tahoe fashion not only because of their awesomeness, but also because Robbie Galle (one of the MC’s) has roots here in South Lake Tahoe. He’s a South Tahoe High grad and his two younger brothers are still living here in town.
I seriously cannot wait for this dance party! Hope to see all of you there!
