Sugaray Rayford is a man with a message and a larger than life personality and voice to deliver it. Working with producer, songwriter Eric Corne for the past 3 albums, the soul-blues powerhouse has crafted an incendiary sound and narrative, combining classic soul melodies and funky R & B grooves with raw blues power.

The pair’s first collaboration, Somebody Save Me, earned Rayford a 2020 Grammy nomination. Later that year he took home Blues Music Awards for ‘Soul Blues Male Artist’ and ‘B.B. King Entertainer of the Year.’ Rayford’s follow up In Too Deep won a plethora of awards including the Blues Music Award for ‘Soul Blues Album of the Year’.

Rayford’s new release is entitled ‘Human Decency’. The title track is a simple reminder that our similarities are stronger than our differences and in the end, there is no black or white or left or right, there are only hearts and minds. 

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, feel free to 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. Cars can be left overnight outside the gate in the dirt lot at the owner’s own risk. 

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.  

Food & Beverage:

  • 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. 

If you have questions or require assistance please call (530) 541-4975 or email Info@ValhallaTahoe.com at least 24 hours in advance.

Valhalla hosts a Summer Event Series each year that includes concerts in the Boathouse, improv shows, free lawn concerts, living history performances, two plays, children’s art camp, the annual Gatsby Tea and the WordWave one-act play competition. The Holiday Faire is a family tradition for many locals and visitors. Join us for a performance and experience living history against a stunning backdrop. The theatre’s interior with exposed beams from the original boathouse creates an unrivaled experience in performing arts venues.
