PRESS RELEASE

3RD ANNUAL LAKE TAHOE REGGAE FESTIVAL FEATURING: IRATION, MATISYAHU, DON CARLOS, THE GREEN, THE EXPENDABLES AND MORE SATURDAY, JUNE 27TH SOUTH LAKE TAHOE


Lake Tahoe is the place to be this summer for the best reggae, hiking and swimming, gaming and dining and all-around Irie vibes. Mark your calendar for the last weekend in June and join us for 3rd annual Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival on Saturday, June 27th presented by PR Entertainment & Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.


Reggae favorites include Iration, Matisyahu, Don Carlos, The Expendables, The Green, Fortunate Youth, Vokab Kompany, Squarefield Massive, and more to be announced.


Multiple songs by <b>Iration</b> have topped alternative radio station charts throughout the country and they have been touring nationally since 2007, performing at festivals such as: Lollapalooza, Wakarusa, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, and Sunset Strip Music Festival. Iration has headlined several successful national headline club tours with numerous sold out shows nationwide. They blend reggae, rock and pop to create a truly unique listening experience.


<b>Matisyahu</b> has come a long way since 2005 when he released his breakout album, Live at Stubb's (which reached #1 on the Reggae Albums Chart and #30 on the Billboard 200). Since then he has pushed himself dynamically and creatively, breaking with expectation at every turn and remaking his musical image with nearly every album.


Born Euvin Spencer, legendary reggae artist, <b>Don Carlos</b> was born and raised in one of the most deprived regions of Western Kingston, Jamaica, in a district notoriously known as Waterhouse, which incidentally is also a musical spawning ground for many of Reggae's greatest ever talents, such as King Tubby, Black Uhuru, Junior Reid and King Jammy, to name a few. Don Carlos started his singing career in 1973 as one of the original members of Black Uhuru and then started his solo career. Within three years Suffering was released taking the fraternity by storm and was a massive hit in Africa, selling unprecedented units. Unfortunately, the album was bootlegged, and Don never received proper royalties. He has been touring in Europe, South America, Hawaii, and the western US. Don's popularity has been consistently growing, so he is now one of the most sought after roots reggae artists in the business.


<b>The Green</b> formed on O'ahu, Hawai'i, in 2009. The group began as a vehicle for six different members of Hawai'i's tight-knit music scene to record a few songs and have a bit of fun along the way. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2010, earned both critical and commercial acclaim, and was awarded iTunes Best Reggae Album of the Year. The Green's latest album, Hawai'i '13, opens with a chant. "From the times of ancient Hawai'i and even up to present day, chanting has been a part of our culture," says JP Kennedy, guitarist, vocalist, and one of the band's five songwriters. "It's a way to start something important. When we chant, we ask for blessings, knowledge, and guidance so that we can be 'pono' or righteous in whatever we do." The chant of "He Mele No Ku'u Hawai'i" prepares the album's listener as much as the band. Hawai'i '13 dances through roots reggae, soul, and R&B.


<b>The Expendables</b> enjoyed a laid-back lifestyle growing up in Santa Cruz, CA; surfing, skating, partying, and playing music were commonplace. Since 1997, The Expendables have staked their claim in the California surf/rock genre by headlining venues from coast to coast. Blending Reggae, Punk Rock, and 80s style dueling guitar solos, The Expendables have made heads turn and floors shake for years. Thirteen years later, five albums down and countless miles covered The Expendables show no signs of slowing down.


<b>Fortunate Youth</b> is a collaboration of South Bay reggae stand-outs. Rising from various bands, they've created a phenomenal 6-piece masterpiece bringing more fire to the stage than ever before. Combining rootsy vibes and unique bass lines united with multiple harmonies, boisterous guitar solos, and heavy keys separates, Fortunate Youth from every other mainstream reggae band. Upon releasing their full-length album they quickly rose to #2 on the iTunes Reggae Charts and also locked in a #13 position on Billboard Top 100 Reggae Albums. Receiving great praise for early success, Fortunate Youth strives to spread their interpretation of Reggae music to Music Lovers worldwide.

$45 well worth the Don! Matisyahu played a great set in Bend, OR last winter and would be more than happy to see him live again. Wish we had festivals like this in Central Oregon.

The Don is passing through Santa Cruz for a club show and it's $35 ! WTF!!
This can't be justified by saying Visa and travel docs and travel costs. I love the Don and hope he's at least getting a lions share.

$45 at the Hard Rock for a full lineup makes you wonder about a rinky dink club in a little house charging $35 , like I sad I hope Don's getting paid WELL!

Don Carlos is one of the best ever! $45-$50 well worth a show to see just him IMHO! I hope he comes to Bend, OR and I would gladly pay $50 to see him, I might be one of the few there at $50 a ticket but well worth it to me! He is like fine wine, gets better with age!

Gettin tired of the fans who keep pigeon-holing reggae into some narrow definition. The genre has broadened. It's a global music now. Travel around and hear it in different places and start yapping at those people that they're not playing reggae and see how that goes. Although most of the bands on the lineup are not my cup of tea, I believe there's enough good music there that I would still find a way to enjoy myself for $45. I certainly would never pay $45 to see Don Carlos alone regardless of how much I love him.

Re: 3rd Annual Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival

so nowadays i guess pretty much everything gets labeled as a "festival".... even when its a hacked together lineup of music that doesn't go together.....?!



guess now that i think about it, "festival" is way more catchy than "heres a weak ass lineup all day at a casino now give us your money"....

So true Higrade. They should just call it a concert.

Concert: music and bands for a few hours. No ins and outs.

Festival: camping, music, bands, don't leave the site for a few days
