Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers from New Orleans will take the stage July 27 at Tahoe Donner’s Summer Concert on the Green. Joining the “King of Accordion,” Jelly Bread and the Buddy Emmer Blues Band will also perform starting at 4 p.m. Doors open at 3 p.m.

Tahoe Donner’s Summer Concert on the Green continues to bring fantastic performing artists to Truckee to entertain concert goers in a beautiful outdoor setting at Tahoe Donner’s driving range.

True to the roots of Zydeco, the band of talented players create a sound and energy that will astound the audience.

Zydeco music has its origins in Southern Louisiana and blends Cajun sounds with blues and rhythm-and-blues. The band features a washboard player, a saxophonist, two guitarists, a drummer and of course the accordionist and singer Dwayne (Dopsie) Rubin. Rubin is a gifted player who was named “America’s Hottest Accordionist” in an American Accordionists’ Association contest.

Jelly Bread is a Reno band currently making waves on the local circuit. Having been voted as Best Album and Lake Tahoe Band of the Year in 2012, the band is now gaining a growing reputation with its eclectic mix of styles that incorporates funk, blues and rock-Americana.

Buddy Emmer and his Blues Band have been a longtime favorite for the past 15 years on the West Coast and Northern Nevada circuit. They are a versatile party blues band whose musical style includes every form of blues from the 1930s up to modern day blues.

Bring a picnic and enjoy the outdoor sounds of summer at Tahoe Donner’s Concert on the Green. Beer and wine, as well as additional food and beverage offerings and barbecue from Famous Dave’s out of Reno will be available for purchase at the event.

Low-back chairs are recommended.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door and likely to sell out. Purchase tickets online at tahoedonner.com/shop or at Tahoe Donner’s member services office at the Northwoods Clubhouse located at 11509 Northwoods Blvd. in Truckee.

Tahoe Donner is also offering Kid’s Night Out for the Summer Concert from 3:30 to 10:30 p.m. Parents can drop off their kids at Trout Creek Recreation Center for supervised activities during the concert.
