Boot Juice: Welcome to the raft guides’ jam party

Cosmic Americana

What began as a wild party of raft guides jamming on the Payette River in Idaho grew into a multi-piece rock ensemble with a reputation for off-the-cuff performances that shift effortlessly between hard-driving Americana and cosmic rock. Boot Juice blends folk-rock and R&B traditions with a rambling New Orleans-style brass section, three-part vocal harmonies, rolling percussion and dynamic instrumental arrangements to create a one-of-a-kind show where the audience becomes a living, breathing member of the band.

They take the stage June 28 at 5 p.m. for Music in the Park in Tahoe Paradise Park in Meyers and June 30 at 4 p.m. for Concerts at Commons Beach in Tahoe City. | bootjuicejams.com
