Brooklyn native Rocker-T has been guided by a higher power and life experience to vocalize the messages of peace, love and equality worldwide. He is a promoter of truth and rights through music. His array of musical knowledge and the spiritual teachings he’s acquired throughout life have enabled him to not only blaze trails in many genres, but to create a unique voice which touches spirits around the world from all walks of life.
Rocker-T is an international underground sensation who is respected by many top artists of several genres, and this popularity has enabled him to tour Japan with Jamalski, Europe with the NYC Ska Mob, the West Coast several times in many forms, the US twice with the IRT Band (once with Shinehead), and in Mexico, Trinidad, and Panama. He has recorded internationally including three songs produced in Germany for Dr. Ring Ding’s album “Diggin Up Dirt” and “Sensi in the Club” recorded while living in Amsterdam, released by Owen Maigret’s Conquering Lion Soundz. His West Coast tours with Jah Warrior Shelter Hi-Fi were a major influence on West Coast sound systems as they saturated the area with their authentic Jamaican style sound system.
Happy Thursday South Lake Tahoe! 4th of July fun starts a day early on the south shore, so get ready to celebrate! FREE live music on the beach starts at 4:30 pm with Taking Root, then we move into the birthday celebration with Lavish Green! 19 years ago (to the day) local rockers, Lavish Green played their very first gig at a house party on Alameda avenue. 19 years later, their original front man Rob Giustina (aka Robby Jah) hosts their anniversary celebration down the street from where it all started!
Here’s a taste of what to expect from Lavish Green tonight!
See you at the beach!

We’ve been blessed to host dozens of super talented musicians on the Live at Lakeview stage over the past two summers. When we started looking at the 2014 lineup, it was hard not to bring back every band from last year but in an effort to keep things fresh we will only have three Live at Lakeview headliner repeats this season!
On July 3rd, local favorites, Lavish Green make their triumphant return to Live at Lakeview as they celebrate 19 years of rockin’ hearts & souls here in Tahoe! That’s right, July 3, 2014 happens to be their 19th anniversary and we’re beyond stoked to host such an incredible celebration!
On July 10th, we’re bringing back one of our favorite opening acts from 2012 and 2013, Tracorum! Third time’s a charm for these guys as they are now headliners for the show with the local bluegrass sounds of The Sierra Drifters kicking things off at 4:30 pm! Tracorum is an incredibly talented Rock n’ Soul band from San Francisco who’s been blowing up across California and throughout the US. Watching artists blossom from opening acts to killer headliners is a beautiful thing and we can’t wait for them to return to the Live at Lakeview stage this July!
Another three-peat performer for Live at Lakeview, 40 Watt Hype, returns August 7th with their eclectic sound that always gets the crowd moving! Every season, this is always my favorite show because their talent is unmatched and the vibe is felt all around the venue. Take a look at the fun we’ve had with 40 Watt Hype over the past two seasons:
We have some really outstanding music coming to Live at Lakeview this summer! If you haven’t already done so, take a good look at the lineup and get STOKED!
Summer is almost here!
