LAKE TAHOE, Nev. — MontBleu and PR Entertainment presents the Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival on Saturday, June 30 in the brand new MontBleu Amphitheatre located at the MontBleu Casino Resort in Lake Tahoe.

The all-day festival will feature reggae/dub/rock band, Pepper, along with New Zealand’s Katchafire, Hawaiian reggae sensation J Boog, Hot Rain, Keyser Soze, The Mark Sexton Band, and Squarefield Massive from Sacramento.

General admission tickets will be available for $39 by calling MontBleu, 775-588-3515, at the box office or online at ticketmaster.com.

Pepper, composed of guitarist/vocalist Kaleo Wassman, bassist/vocalist Bret Bollinger and drummer Yesod Williams, formed in Kailua, Kona on the big island of Hawaii in 1997.

They have also been known to hypnotize fans of all walks of life with their incredibly sweet harmonies all the while keeping bodies moving on the dance floor.

Pepper has sold over half a million records independently and founded its own record label, Law Records.

The group’s music has appeared in many movies, including “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Good Luck Chuck,” plus television shows and video game soundtracks as well as having had a number of album tracks appear on Billboard’s “Alternative Songs” chart (including No Shame’s “No Control,” which peaked at No. 18, and “Give It Up” which peaked at No. 34.)

The band has also amassed a large and loyal following stemming from its non-stop touring which includes numerous rounds on the Vans Warped Tour and outings with reggae legends The Wailers, 311 and Snoop Dogg, to name a few.

Pepper has performed at several festivals including Lollapolooza, Mile High Festival, West Beach Music Festival, as well as many others.

In 2008, Pepper made the rounds through Europe twice alongside Flogging Molly in the spring and Less Than Jake in the fall.

They spent their summer of that year celebrating the July release of “Pink Crustaceans and Good Vibrations” that peaked at No. 11 on Billboard’s “Independent Albums” chart.

The madness continued through the spring of 2009 when Pepper ventured out for the second time co-headlining the Jagermeister Music Tour with punk rock legends, Pennywise.

That fall of ’09, Pepper partied on the streets of Los Angeles, playing the second annual Sunset Strip Music Festival with rock legend Ozzy Osbourne.

Opening the all-day festival will be Hot Rain from the island of O‘ahu, Squarefield Massive from Sacramento, Keyser Soze, and The Mark Sexton Band from Reno, Nev.

Doors open at 1:30 p.m., and the music starts at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $39, and available at all Ticketmaster outlets and at the MontBleu box office, or online ticketmaster.com or by calling MontBleu Resort at 775-588-3515.

This is an all ages event. Food and beverage concessions are located inside the amphitheatre.
