For great entertainment, head to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe as iconic Vinyl plays host to Doobies Inc., a tribute to the Doobie Brothers rocks the stage on Dec. 12. The 2004 Vocal Group Hall of Fame inductees exploded into mainstream music in the early 1970s before going on to sell more than 40 million records. Catch Doobies Inc. perform Doobie Brothers’ classics such as “Listen to the Music” and “Long Train Running.” Tickets cost $10 The Hard Rock Hotel Store or free for Backstage Pass Rewards Club members.

Blow the doors off reality and travel back to 1968 with Strange Days, a tribute to The Doors. Arguably the most iconic American band to emerge from the counter culture of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, The Doors mesmerized audiences with charismatic lyrics and unpredictably rambunctious live performances, eventually selling more than 100 million albums worldwide. Strange Days captures the same magic in their live performances with renditions of “Break on Through” and “Touch Me” as well as many others. Strange Days will rock Vinyl nightclub on Dec. 19. Tickets cost $10 The Hard Rock Hotel Store or free for Backstage Pass Rewards Club members.

Rewind for the last time in 2015 with Kevin Russell’s Cream of Clapton, a tribute to the songs of Eric Clapton. Widely acclaimed as one of the greatest guitar players of all time, Clapton’s music transcends genres from blues, hard rock, pop, even the psychedelic of the 1970s and has made him the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Cream of Clapton’s spellbinding performances of greatest hits from “Layla” to “Sunshine of Your Love” will bring Clapton’s iconic songbook to life on Dec. 26. Tickets are $10 The Hard Rock Hotel Store or free for Backstage Pass Rewards Club members.

2015 has been a monumental year for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe, so why not send the year off with a rockin’ New Year’s Eve bash? Join the Hard Rock for the Big ’80s New Year’s Eve Party featuring The Radio Rebels, Southern California’s premier ’80s cover band. Tickets can be purchased for $20 online or at The Hard Rock Hotel Store.
