STATELINE, Nev. — Alt rock power pop band All-American Rejects and legendary reggae artist Jimmy Cliff are the latest performers added to the all-star lineup for MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa’s inaugural outdoor Summer Concert Series at Tahoe South.

All-American Rejects band will appear on Tuesday, Aug. 14.

Other performers are actor and comedian Tracy Morgan and the “Comedians From Chelsea Lately,” featuring Brad Wollack, Josh Wolf and Jen Kirkman.

From humble beginnings out of a garage in Stillwater, Okla., All-American Rejects shot to the top of the charts in 2003 with its self-titled album and the hit single “Swing, Swing.”

From that album the band secured its loyal following, produced three more albums that have sold more than 10 million CD’s worldwide. This year’s tour supports the latest album, “Kids in The Street.”

Island soul comes to Tahoe when Jamaican reggae legend Jimmy Cliff performs at the 4,000-seat outdoor amphitheater on Saturday, Aug. 25.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010, Cliff’s contributions to reggae music have been relentless. He’s best known for songs “Sitting in Limbo,” “You Can Get It If You Really Want” and “Many Rivers to Cross” from the “The Harder They Come” soundtrack.

On Thursday, Sept. 27, energetic rock, reggae and hip-hop will dominate the stage with Matisyahu/Dirty Heads. Matisyahu mixes reggae, hip-hop and rap with beatboxing and witty banter for a unique performance style that has earned several Grammy nominations and a massive fan base.

Laced with the signature carefree southern California attitude, the Dirty Heads deliver a blend of rock, reggae and hip-hop reminiscent of Sublime.
