Snow Fest 2017, an 11 day winter carnival, kicks off Thursday, March 2nd, at Garwoods in Carnelian Bay. Groove Foundry, a local favorite, will open the festivities with a concert from 6-9pm.

Groove Foundry is a crowd pleaser, and if you have not been fortunate enough to enjoy one of their many Tahoe/Reno area concerts, don't miss this one. The eight member band plays a signature mix of Blues, Funk, and Jazz. All the musicians have vast experience with renowned and varied names such as Santana, America, and Tom Jones.

The horn section, traditionally found on the sidelines, dominates the stage. Founding member and Tenor Saxophone Todd Mather, stunning Jen Campbell on Trumpet, and 'Nak' on Trombone, combine amazing musical talent with fashion flare and style. They are as much fun to look at as they are to listen to.

Barry Slater will mesmerize on guitar, while Isaac Freed on bass, Brian Silverman on keyboard, and Bill Heise on drums add their magic, creating a sound that will have you getting up and dancing to the beat. Glenn Campbell, with his deep and emotionally compelling vocals, completes this synergistic auditory experience.

Snow Fest will continue on Friday in Tahoe City with a fireworks show at Commons Beach at 8:30pm, followed by an after party at Pete and Peter's. More information on the winter festival, and the entire schedule of events, can be found on their website
