The MontBleu Resort and Casino located in the beautiful city of Lake Tahoe, NV hosted the Jimmy Cliff Show this past weekend. PR Entertainment produced a fabulous show that definitely was the way to end the summer with a bang.

Opening acts included The StoryTellers, EphBeeCee, Uprising and rising urban island music artist Josh White. The way the outdoor venue was set up was like an open field with a massive stage in the front. The sound of the venue was spectacular. Listening to the bands perform were crisp and clear. Sacrmento based group The Storytellers opened the show and got the crowd warmed up.

As the show continued, Reno had two urban island bands which were EphBeeCee and Uprising. Both gave solid performances and both were well received by the crowd. It’s always nice to see fresh new talent represent their cities well and gain the support by their local communities. As the sun went down and the music kept going, the venue began to fill up. It was time for singer Josh “Wawa” White to hit the stage. With just one drummer to back him up to his music, Wawa gained a new audience instantly in Lake Tahoe when he started singing.

After White’s performance, there was a quick intermission while the sound technicians and stage crew set up for Jimmy Cliff’s set. Once the legend came on stage, his youthful energy had the massive crowd grooving to his classics. His 2-hour performance had the crowd entertained and singing a long to hit songs such as The Harder They Come, I Can See Clearly Now, You Can Get It If You Really Want, and Reggae Night. At 64 years old, Jimmy Cliff gave an outstanding show. Being in the presence of a reggae legend was very memorable and that’s WhatIDo!
