Due to weather conditions - the concert was moved to TONIGHT - December 29! Native Truckee musician Mark Mackay invites the Tahoe community to his performance on Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at the Community Arts Center on Church Street in Truckee, CA. Mark is graciously donating all proceeds from the concert to the nonprofit Tahoe Truckee School of Music (TTSM). Buy tickets in advance as limited tickets are available at the door the day of the concert if it’s NOT sold out.
"This show has a special meaning for me. First of all, going to music school and taking piano lessons is how I got started in the music industry,” says Mark Mackay. “I think we all need to do a better job of encouraging people to play instruments! Second, Truckee was home to me many years ago when I worked in the ski industry, and I’m always happy to come back and help the local community, they are the greatest folks up there."
Doors open at 6pm, selected TTSM students perform at 6:30pm, followed by Mark Mackay and his band’s performance at 7pm. Drinks are available for purchase courtesy of Alibi Ale House. TTSM will offer raffle tickets and a silent auction for a chance to win fantastic musical prizes.
About Mark Mackay: An uninhibited guitarist with songwriting seeped in storytelling authenticity, Mark Mackay finds himself at the crossroads of country and rock n’ roll. A vagabond with a jubilant charisma and uncanny ability to transcribe creative odyssey to song - manifested in a road-warrior with an eagerness to illustrate his work in a live, all-consuming performance. Mark plays to huge crowds all over the country, stadium-sized audiences; sharing the bill with artists who spanned the spectrum- from Blake Shelton to REO Speedwagon to Tim McGraw and Richie Sambora.
