Concerts at Commons Beach - Poor Man’s Whiskey

  • Commons Beach 400 North Lake Boulevard Tahoe City, CA, 96145 United States (map)

Poor Man’s Whiskey is Northern California’s outlaw music, bringing a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of bluegrass/old time, southern rock, and old school jam to stages and festivals worldwide. This “High-Octane Hootenanny” will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stompin good time. Poor Man’s Whiskey has evolved into a ragged, spontaneous beast pulling from equally deep wells of story-telling originals, expertly crafted covers and zany on-stage shenanigans.


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.
