Sunday, June 30, 2024, 4:30 pm, Red Dirt Ruckus band on the Grand Hall Lawn at Valhalla. They are known for their energetic blend of bluegrass, reggae, and funk, which it calls “Foothill Rudegrass.”

The band consists of the following members:

  • Doug Not Josh (Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin)
  • Dan “Mad Monk” Abbott (Vocals, Bass)
  • Lisa Bond (Fiddle)
  • Jared Collins (Sousaphone and Trumpet)
  • Rob Keedy (Drums & Percussion)

They have played together for almost a decade, creating a loyal following in Sacramento and beyond. Their music is fun and danceable, perfect for getting the crowd moving at live shows.

The Tallac Historic Site is located 2 miles past the intersection of Highway 50 and Highway 89, just past Camp Richardson, on the lake side of Highway 89. Please turn right on the street with the sign “Valhalla.” If the gate is locked or the 73-space parking lot is full, park along Hwy 89 outside the entrance. There is a large dirt lot just past the Valhalla Tahoe sign. Overnight parking is not allowed inside the gate. At the owner’s own risk, cars can be left overnight outside the gate in the dirt lot. 

We encourage carpooling, bike riding, and good old-fashioned walking. Parking is allowed in designated 73 spaces only. There is also a large public parking lot for the Tallac Historic Site on Heritage Way, one street West of Valhalla Road, that is open in late May or early October.

  • There are ~225 yards between the parking lot and the Boathouse Theater. Please wear comfortable shoes and allow time for the walk. A site host can bring a golf cart around for accessibility issues if scheduled ahead of time.

  • Light snacks, popcorn, and beer and wine are available for sale at our concessions.
  • Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the Boathouse Theater.
  • Outside alcohol is not allowed in the reserved table section/beer garden at outdoor events.
