The sound of Wolf Jett will make you dance, sing, and possibly even howl! Its roots run deep through the soul and help heal the heaviness of life. Their music celebrates perseverance, infusing folk, blues, and Americana into what can only be described as “Cosmic Mountain Music.” Frontman Chris Jones was born in the South and raised in CA. His songs combine the best of both worlds to create a fresh vibe yet immediately familiar to a broad audience. He is joined by long-time musical collaborator Jon Payne on drums, Duncan Shipton on bass and Will Fourt on lap steel/guitar. Often featuring Laura T. Lewis on vocals/percussion and other special guests, to boot.

Wolf Jett was conceived in late 2019 with the intent of bringing people together and putting smiles on their faces. Just prior to the release of their debut album (backed by three multi-state tours and various festival appearances), the world was brought to a screeching halt by the pandemic. To adapt, they constructed an analog studio at Jon’s residence called “House on a Hill” in Boulder Creek, CA. Unfortunately, the CZU Lightning fires ripped through Big Basin State Park in August that year, consuming the house and new studio along with it. Their story was featured in SF Chronicle, Oakland Tribune, San Jose Mercury, and Santa Cruz Sentinel. Seeing an opportunity to help their community heal, they recorded a breathtaking emotional live video among the ashes and rubble of where House on a Hill once stood with the help of their friends, the T Sisters. Their song “Garden of Pain” has since become a local favorite. 

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.

  • 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.
