The Cal Neva Resort to host multiple international and local music acts, including Tipper, Pimps of Joytime, and Fort Knox Five for North Lake Tahoe’s biggest New Year’s Eve event tradition.Fans of Fresh Bakin’ events, The Bounce Festival, and Bounce-O-Ween should already have their calendars marked for the Sixth Annual Black and White Superball at the Cal Neva Resort in Crystal Bay, Nevada this New Year’s Eve. Featuring styles ranging from heavy bass to funky grooves, eighteen musical acts are set to perform on three different stages, including international superstars Tipper, The Pimps of Joytime, and Fort Knox Five. Also included in this year’s lineup are West Coast and local favorites Love and Light, Vokab Kompany, Zeb Early, Coop Da Loop, Micah J, Bim Tim, and Motorhome.“We’re very excited that the Cal Neva is not only hosting us, but letting us have a complete musical take-over of the resort,” says Fresh Bakin’ producer Steve Emmerich. “It’s only here at this unique venue that we can bring you multiple rooms of dynamic music under one roof. Just like our Bounce Festival, we are bringing together acts and regional production teams that give this event an all out community and festival feel.”Headlining the evening is British composer and producer TIPPER, world renowned for performing from his extensive catalog of unreleased breakbeats, hip-hop, and glitch music while scratching his own sounds live. Also at the top of the bill is Brooklyn based, five-piece funk band THE PIMPS OF JOYTIME, who fuse infectious groove lines, afrobeats, salsa, rock and roll, and electronic music to create unforgettable music that fast-forwards a seventies sound into the new millennium. Additionally, DC based FORT KNOX FIVE, a leading force in the international funk and breaks scene will once again bring their fusion funk, reggae, hip hop beats and breaks to ring in the New Year.
Adding to the intensely diverse musical line-up are local favorites LOVE AND LIGHT, who will perform original glitch-hop, dubstep, and “lazer-crunk” electronica from their chart topping albums Galactic Booty Activation and Level Up, and live act VOKAB KOMPANY, a seven piece hip hop act from San Diego known for their collaborations with the likes of Cage the Elephant, Wu Tang, and Random Rab.
The Bounce, Fresh Bakin’s production partner, has assembled teams that will transform this classic venue into an ethereal journey, winding through elevated black and white spectacles, and guiding each participant freely through the changing of the calendar into 2013. Highlights include the metamorphosis of the hotel lobby into a vibrant dance area with Bounce staging and Second Dawn Lighting, music thumping away with local Meyer masters, Soulstice Sound. Also, Double D Productions, Rage Stage, Wobble Factory, and Lite Brite Productions are on deck to execute extraordinary sound and lighting stage production.
Fresh Bakin’ has made certain that whatever your musical leanings, the Black and White Superball will be the New Year’s gathering to get the Tahoe masses dancing.
