FEATURE: ROCK ‘N’ ROLLIN’ IN TAHOE

Lake Tahoe is many things, but it is not traditionally thought of as a catalyst for the evolution of rock ‘n’ roll music.

Notwithstanding, there is an argument to be made that a defunct bowling alley on Tahoe’s North Shore, the Kings Beach Bowl, served as an incubator for some of the greatest acts in rock ‘n’ roll history, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Neil Young, Stephen Stills and the Grateful Dead. The makeshift concert venue only operated for two years and held no more than a few hundred people.
