Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park’s inaugural Summer Sunday Concert Series opens Sunday with Notch 8, a Northern Nevada band that plays American roots music.
The band formed in 2011 and includes guitarist and vocalist James Wilsey; bassist Jeff Moser; bass, accordionist Drew List; and drummer Bob Conrad. It recently opened for WAR and played for the 160th anniversary of the Genoa Bar. Its CD “Just Move On,” which offers a dozen songs, was released in the spring.
Russell Ketenjian, who plays blues and ballads, will open the show at 5 p.m. Notch 8 will take the stage from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Tickets cost $10 per person and are available using cash or check at Battle Born Wine or Joyce’s Fine Jewelry, both in Gardnerville. Tickets can be purchased by credit-card at notch8.eventbrite.com. If not sold-out, tickets can be purchased using cash or check at the gate, which opens at 4 p.m. Children 16 and younger are admitted free and do not need a ticket but must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs, with the exception of certified service animals, are strictly prohibited.
Seating will be available, but visitors are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets and food and beverages. Beer and wine will be available for purchase, and food, soft drinks and water will be sold by the Carson Valley Lions Club to benefit that organization’s charities.
Others on the schedule in this year’s Summer Sunday Concert Series are Bootleggers performing country and classic rock on July 13, The Mental Notes on Aug. 3 and The Mark Sexton Band on Aug. 24.
