Jimmy Leslie is somewhat of a musical renaissance man on the San Francisco Bay Area scene. He’s a freak “freehand” guitarist with a funky roots rock style, a soaring soulful singer, and a bona fide multi-faceted writer. Leslie’s groovy songs flow like water, as do the features he pens each month for Guitar Player and Bass Player magazines.
Featuring an eclectic mix of touring regional and national artists, as well as local bands the popular Concerts at Commons Beach music series will return to Tahoe City on Sunday afternoons this summer from June 17 through September 2. The concert series has become a staple of summertime fun on Lake Tahoe’s West Shore and a favorite of both locals and visitors, with concerts held on Sundays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Concerts at Commons Beach makes the most of its lakeside venue, with concertgoers enjoying live music both on shore and by anchoring their boats nearby. Presented in partnership with the Tahoe City Downtown Association and Tahoe City Public Utility District, Concerts at Commons Beach is North Lake Tahoe’s largest free live music event. Food and wine are available for purchase from local vendors, and attendees are welcome to bring picnics, blankets and low back chairs to enjoy a fun, relaxing evening by the lake.
