Live at Lakeview: Sol Peligro and Boca do Rio

August 17, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Boca Do Rio

Sol Peligro and Boca do Rio will perform at Live at Lakeview on Thursday at Lakeview Commons in South Lake Tahoe.

Sol Peligro literally translates to “the sun that people feel threatened by.” But the Latin-reggae nine-piece from Sacramento looks to be a bunch of nice guys, really. Founder and lead vocalist Sam Miranda is backed by Chris Blakenship (drums), Ken Rego (percussion), Cesar Mena (bass), Todd Perez (guitar), Richard Gonzalez (trumpet), Marti Sarigul-Klijn (saxophone), Tim Weiss (trumpet) and Will Scharff (keyboards). The band combines Mexican, Cumbia and reggae with a hint of alternative rock. The group writes its own material, taking on some serious issues as it does, but delivers fun-loving music with a positive message.

Ready for some Brazilian space funk? Boca do Rio is here to deliver. Born of the mixing of waters of Brazil and the San Francisco Bay Area, the band has created musica organica  music that developed through the rhythm of living and working between the Americas. After a decade of performing all original music during the heyday of San Francisco’s live music scene, Boca do Rio has evolved into a multi-layered electro-funk party boat with a sound that is fluid and edgy, adaptable and free. It is is the Mission District’s longest-playing and hardest-hitting Brazilian-American band, and it has made its mark on both the north and south shores of Lake Tahoe in the past several years, delighting crowds at beachfront shows.
