After Thanksgiving weekend snowstorms, optimism about the upcoming season reigns at Lake Tahoe. The winter forecast calls for an unprecedented and epic inundation of great music at the Crystal Bay Casino.

The Crown Room, which during the summer increased its capacity to more than 750, will hold numerous big-time shows, including The Motet, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Galactic, the California Honeydrops, the Revivalists, Elephant Revival, the Dead Winter Carpenters, ALO and two nights of Lettuce, which will be on its Mt. Crushmore tour. Most of the shows will have opening bands on tour with the headliners.

“This winter’s lineup is likely our best yet and we are not done yet,” Casino Manger Bill Wood told Tahoe Onstage.

“We still may have a few surprises for the fans,” he said. “The increased cap has allowed us to take a few chances that previously were not in play.”

While most of the major bands have previously appeared in the Crown Room, it has often been for midweek shows. The increased capacity allows for them to perform on weekends with opening nationally touring bands.

Before the year even ends, both Leftover Salmon and the North Mississippi Allstars will play two shows each on consecutive nights.
