Watch the Helicopter Land Today, More Concert-Event Tickets on Sale, Bandtastic Saturday, More

Watch for It About 4:45 PM Today
Helicopter to Land in Our New Parking Lot This Afternoon?
That’s the plan as Care Flight arrives to kick off to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Open House today from 5 to 7 PM “right next-door” to the Carson Valley Inn! Our Sheriff’s Office will have out all of their equipment including the SWAT vehicles and gear, the K9 unit, Bomb Squad, Emergency Communications Mobile Command Post, motorcycles, patrol cars and the Lake Tahoe patrol boat. There’ll also be tours of the jail, the mounted posse will be around, Search & Rescue will do demonstrations and much more. It’s all free – just show up!

Concert and Event Update
  • Lee Brice Concert on May 20: After reaching sellout status last week we were able to make a few more tickets available. So, if you checked before, we suggest you check again  . . . But do so soon because they seem to sell as fast as we add them.
  • Kenny Loggins Concert on Friday, June 9: tickets are 80% sold so again we suggest you don’t let this opportunity to see Kenny slip by as sales are quickly approaching the Danger Zone. On a related and perhaps a somewhat ironic note, Saturday is Top Gun Day. However you choose to celebrate, be sure to raise a glass for Goose, Maverick, Iceman and the rest of Top Gun class of 1986. Let the world know that you haven’t lost that loving feeling, even after all this time.
  • Aaron Watson featuring special guest Clare Dunn Concert on Friday, June 16: our younger country fans are really gobbling up tickets for this event.
  • The Spinners Concert on Saturday July 8: tickets went on sale today at $39 & $45 for this authentic throwback to the sounds of Motown. The Spinners charted five top 100 singles (and two top tens) from their first post-Motown album, Spinners (1972), and went on to become one of the biggest soul groups of the 1970s.
  • WFC Mixed Martial Arts Event on Saturday July 8: This one features Muay Thai & BJJ and you can now get tickets through our normal concert ticket service. Click here, agree to the terms and you’ll see this event listed along with our concerts.
  • Our last two concerts are the Marshall Tucker Band on Friday, July 28 and Michael McDonald on Friday, August 18.  We hope to have ticket availability information for these two events shortly!

Turtle’s Last Dance Friday
We’re sending our dearly departed entertainment director Stew Stewart off in the style he requested and always appreciated – with a party this Friday in TJ’s Corral!  “Turtle’s Last Dance” starts at 5pm, the Davisson Brothers perform live at 6pm and the evening is free to all ages – Join Us!

These Notes All Come Together Saturday in TJ's Corral
Bandtastic 2.0 is coming to TJ’s Corral this Saturday, May 13. Previously held at Douglas High School, we’ve been working with the school music staff to help them find a bigger venue so that more people can attend. TJ’s Corral not only provides much more audience space, but it also allows the students a chance to perform on the same stage as the legendary acts who have appeared in TJ’s Corral over the last five years. Bantastic is designed to strengthen the Douglas County Band Programs by bringing all of the music students from various Douglas County schools to one unifying event and sharing it with the community. Over 200 student musicians will be performing with bands from Pinon Elementary, Jacks Valley Elementary, Carson Valley Middle School, Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School and Douglas High School. Admission is free - and the beverages and snacks on sale are being handled by the music boosters with all proceeds going directly to the music programs!

Free Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge: Half Dressed Mannequins tonight, Just Us Thursday thru Saturday, John Palmore Sunday and Monday, Roem Baur next Tuesday and Wednesday.   Just Us is a unique group of musicians who decided to blend together the sounds of the Motor City and Oakland, CA to develop "Sweet, Grown & Sexy" sounds - music from the 60’s to the present.  Aladdin handles lead vocal and percussions. He is joined by Les Carter on vocals and drums, Phil Weaver on vocals and guitar and Fred Williams on bass. John Palmore is an accomplished singer and keyboardist who served as musical director for the late Louis Armstrong and has worked with Jackie Wilson, Mary Wells, ZZ Hill, Wilson Pickett, Joe Simon, Percy Sledge, The Platters and other "name" artists. Roem Baur has been featured on the main stage at Super Bowl 50, NBC's The Voice and at CES & SXSW conferences.
