Fun fact – Dead Winter Carpenters were the first band to ever perform into the sunset on the Live at Lakeview Stage! 12 years later, this will be their second headliner performance! 

Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, CA, Americana/root, Rock band Dead Winter Carpenters has
built a reputation for pouring their heart and soul into each performance. Over the past decade,
the band has worked hard to position themselves, wrote Portland Metronome, “at the forefront
of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.” 

“[DWC’s] quick-step, happy-harmony-filled alt-country puts you in the heart of a hot summer day with nothing to do but hear the fiddle move like laughter.” – Portland Mercury 

Joining DWC for the season opener is Pickle Barrel, a Truckee-based trio led by multi-instrumentalist Justin Eubanks. Their debut album features poignant Americana songwriting weaved between the lines of bluegrass & western swing that reflect a lifetime of travel, wordplay & musical immersion.

Vokab Kompany returns for the first time in 5 years, promising a night of hip-hop, soul, and electro vibes that will have you dancing into the sunset. With their dynamic blend of genres and infectious energy, Vokab Kompany always deliver a performance to remember.

“Vokab Kompany is another act that refuses to be pigeonholed. Two MCs might lead you to believe that it’s hip hop, but that doesn’t begin to tell the story. The sevenpiece band from San Diego played for more than an hour, a set that was at times funky, jazzy, heavy, bouncy, even bluegrassy…And it all made sense. Through it all, the crowd was treated to microphonic gymnastics of the dueling MCs, Rob Hurt and Burkey. The group is legit; see them.”  – Sacramento Press

ROXILVERWOLF gets the groove started at 4:30 pm with a unique sound you’re sure to love!

July 18: Americana 

Jimbo Scott & Yesterday’s Biscuits take the stage, treating audiences to an authentic Americana experience, complemented by the soulful melodies of Honey Run.

This summer, the band has doubled again as Jimbo returns with an all-star lineup of musicians to form Jimbo Scott & Yesterday’s Biscuits. In addition to the unmatched vocals of Jimbo Scott, the group features Kiels Williams (The Risky Biscuits) on Guitar and Pedal Steel, Andy Merrill (The Risky Biscuits) on bass and Rob Hooper (Carolyn Wonderland, Jimmy Dale Gilmore, Patrick Pike) on drums & two more incredible artists to fill the stage. They are a rising force in the Norcal Americana Scene, not to be missed and best to be consumed with reckless abandon. 

Honey Run, opening the show at 4:30 pm is a duo featuring the fiddle player from the headline act accompanied by his fiancé on guitar. 

July 25: Indie Rock

Mid-summer, we heat heats things with elements of hip hop and indie rock from Forrest Day. “There’s a lot of hip hop and rock with jazz and reggae. It all pokes its head out in different ways at different times.” the band’s songwriter and lead-man, Day told Music Insider Magazine. 

Based out of Oakland, CA, Forrest Day has been performing around the country for almost a decade. It’s a true rags to riches story, but without any money. He’s got a new album in the works, new singles our and big festivals getting booked this year. We’re honored and excited to welcome him back to the Live at Lakeview stage!
