North Tahoe concerts to benefit local nonprofits

Staff report

Mojo Green brings the crowd to their feet durin the July 26 Music on the Beach concert.

Music on the Beach, a free nine-week concert series, continues with three talented acts at the Kings Beach State Recreation Area this Friday from 6-8:30 p.m.

Music on the Beach producers, North Tahoe Business Association, announced recently that a portion of the proceeds from the remaining three concerts will benefit three local nonprofit organizations.

The Northstar Session will perform Friday, Aug. 16, showcasing their incredible ability to harmonize and tell stories through their lyrics. The show, sponsored by Tahoe Dave's Skis and Boards and Tahoe Biltmore, will benefit the Kings Beach Community House, which will house Tahoe SAFE Alliance, Project MANA and North Tahoe Family Resource Center, as well as other critical services.

On Aug. 23, The McCoy Tyler Band returns to Music on the Beach and will bring their unique blend of California country, American folk and bluegrass. The concert is sponsored by a Kings Beach local who chooses to remain anonymous. The Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe will receive a portion of the proceeds from this concert.

To conclude the series, local band Terraplane will play on Aug. 30. The group is known as one of North Tahoe's funkiest bands for combing fast dance beats, mellow jazzy instrumentals and a little Latin zest. The concert is sponsored by Red Wolf Lakeside Lodge and will benefit The Tahoe Keepers, a group committed to protecting Lake Tahoe's pristine watershed and non-motorized culture.

Representatives from Community House, Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Keepers will be present at their respective concerts, allowing Music on the Beach attendees to learn more about the organizations' mission and programs.
