Carson Valley’s Music Scene Heats Up This Summer

Imagine this…you’re sitting watching a glorious sunset over the Sierra while listening to your favorite artist. Go ahead, make your dreams come true. Carson Valley has an incredible lineup of summer concerts and year-round views just waiting for you!

The summer concerts kick off in May with the Minden Park Summer Concert Series and Carson Valley Inn Casino’s TJ’s Corral on May 25th. Choose between Journey Revisited in the park or The Righteous Brothers Bill Medley & Bucky Heard at TJ’s Corral. Either way, you’re sure to have a great time under the northern Nevada sunset.

June brings longer days and vibrant sunsets to our valley and a fully loaded concert schedule. Kick off the month with Travis Tritt at TJ’s Corral on June 1st. We take a musical break to allow you time to play on our amazing trails before Caravaneri (a Santana cover band) performs in Minden Park on June 15th, followed by Granger Smith making his second appearance at TJ’s Corral June 16th. You never know, you may end up in his next video too. Last time Granger played TJ’s Corral he shot part of this video.

The month isn’t over yet! Head out to Dangberg Home Ranch to enjoy some classic rock on June 21st with local band Double Cross, and The Old West Trio will play classical Western music on June 28th. Head back over to TJ’s Corral on June 29th for what is sure to be a great date night with Clint Black on the stage.

Fireworks are sure to fly in the form of an amazing sunset behind Ted Nugent on TJ’s Corral’s stage on July 4th. The Cripple Creek Band will round out the weekend at Minden Park. On July 12th enjoy Milton Merlos flamenco guitar at Dangberg Home Ranch before heading back to TJ’s Corral for Trace Adkins. The musical month isn’t over yet though. June 26th at Dangberg Home Ranch you can enjoy rock and roll, jazz and rockabilly from Todd Morgan and the Emblems.
