Live Violence Free is excited to announce An Afternoon of Peace & Harmony at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys happening on Saturday, September 7, 2019. The Live Violence Free annual fundraiser will incorporate elements of the long standing Sunset Gala and Lake Tahoe's love for live music. This year we will create a more relaxed, fun event of live performances, food vendors, raffles and special VIP benefits that many Live Violence Free supporters have experienced at the Sunset Gala -- complimentary wine, beer, food from local vendors and silent auction with table seating provided near the stage.
Peace & Harmony Preforming Artists
In the years since her debut, Nikka Costa has toured with Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Coldplay, and Beck, has recorded with superstar DJ and produce Mark Ronson, was nominated for an MTV Music Award, and had multiple hit singles in Europe. Known for the raw allure and energy of her kinetic live performances, Nikka's voice and stage presence have been compared favorably to everyone from Janis Joplin to Chaka Khan to Sly Stone. Her latest record Nikka & Strings is rooted in this legacy and is most remarkable for how it marries the soulful dynamism of her previous work to her recent exploration of intimate performance. From her cover of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U," to channeling Lena Horne's "Stormy Weather," Nikka Costa demonstrates her ability to interpret a song made famous by another artist and makes it inescapably her own. Watch closely with anticipation as Nikka embarks on the next leg of her charmed and fascinating journey.
