The River Ranch concert series is well underway and music fans will surely enjoy Reggae at the River Ranch: an evening with Pato Banton and the Now Generation, on Wednesday, July 25. Doors open for the outdoor patio at 8 p.m. with music starting at  9 p.m. This is the official kick-off party for Wanderlust Festival.

Banton, back by popular demand, is a singer/songwriter and toaster from Birmingham, England and has been on the international reggae circuit since the 1980s.

“From ‘Never Give In to Destination Paradise,’ my main goal has always been to spread truth, beauty and goodness through the vehicle of reggae music,” said Banton.

Also on the bill for the Wednesday concert is local Polynesian band, UpRising and  DJ Treez.

UpRising is a seven member reggae and culture ensemble that hails from Reno, Nev. They aim to encourage and inspire everyone they play for to “rise” against stereotypes and be revolutionaries in their communities. “UpRising positivity and light in every aspect of life,” is the message.

The core of the group is comprised of members from Tonga. The rich harmonies common to traditional Tongan folk and culture music can be heard in their songwriting and performances. UpRising blends and shapes a myriad of genres together to produce a unique musical sound with an overwhelming positive flow and vibe.

Being only two years old as a performing ensemble their sights are set to keep influencing and inspiring others to keep “rising” through their music and community efforts.

River Ranch Lodge, Highway 89 two miles north of Tahoe City, at the entrance to Alpine Meadows, is a spectacular venue. The outdoor concert area/dance floor is on the beautiful Truckee River. Come early and enjoy a fine dining experience and stay for the music.

Tickets to this show are $15 in advance and can be purchased at the River Ranch or online at jambasetickets.com. Tickets on the day of the concert are $20. The River Ranch is a 21 and over venue.

The annual River Ranch Concert Series is produced by Renegade Productions, 775-337-8344.
