Music on the Beach, Lights in the Sky!
Friday, September 2 | 6-9:30pm

Join NTBA for this special night with local, live music from Achilles Wheel followed by a custom drone light show over the lake. Music starts at 6:30pm with the drone light show to follow at 9pm.

NTBA is extremely excited to FINALLY be able to bring our Drone Light Show to life! Due to unforeseen winds at aviation levels we were unable to safely and successfully fly our first annual July 3 Drone Light Show, but instead of cancelling, we made the decision to postpone to Friday, September 2.  [Read Press Release]

THIS EVENT IS FOR YOU! …Our family, friends, business community, neighbors, and visitors! NTBA Board of Directors and Staff want to acknowledge and recognize the trying times we all have endured during this past couple of years. More importantly, NTBA wants to CELEBRATE our incredible and resilient community! This event is our way to say THANK YOU… Thank you for keeping our community safe, for supporting one another, for supporting our businesses and employees, for welcoming our visitors and for continuing to support NTBA and all our efforts through thick and thin!

We will be serving beer from Alibi Ale Works and wine from Truckee River Winery, in addition to non-alcoholic beverages. Local food vendors including Now We Taco’N, Fat Cat Bar & Grill, and Little Truckee Ice Creamery will have food available for purchase from 6-9pm. No outside alcohol or pets are permitted

Achilles Wheel

September 2

Achilles Wheel is a California band that blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats, stark lyrical ballads, and roots rock storytelling combined with dance hall psychedelia. From sweaty dance halls to intimate acoustic shows, the band never tires of relating to their audience and will keep playing until the conversation is complete.


Drone light shows are performed by LED illuminated, synchronized, and choreographed groups of drones that arrange themselves into various aerial formations. Almost any image can be recreated in the sky by a computer program that turns graphics into flight commands and communicates them to the drones.

Utilizing a combination of TOT and TBID dollars, the show is made possible by a presenting sponsorship from the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association and will be produced by the North Tahoe Business Association.
