March 5, 2016 (STATELINE, Nev.) — Michael Franti is a recording artist and live performer with the ability to inspire. On Friday, August 19, 2016, Franti and his band Spearhead will bring their globally-conscious music to MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa for a live performance in the MontBleu Showroom.


From the intense punk rock he created as a member of the Beatnigs, to the deeply political rap he made with the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy, to his joyful and meaningful modern soul music with Spearhead, Michael Franti has been bringing the world powerful, deeply-felt music for 20 years. He has continually been at the forefront of lyrical activism, using his music as a positive force for change.


“I make music because I believe it can change people’s lives and make a difference in the world,” Franti said. He and his band Spearhead have found worldwide success with multi-platinum songs like the 2010 release, “Say Hey (I Love You).” His new single, “Once a Day” from his debut album on Fantasy Records, was inspired by his son’s diagnosis of a rare kidney disease. Franti recorded the song in the hopes that it might encourage anyone going through challenging times. “My belief is that through music, dance and gratitude for this life, we can all rise up,” he said.


Tickets to see Michael Franti & Spearhead are on sale now through Ticketmaster.com for $30, $35, $40 and $45, plus tax and fees. Doors open at 7 p.m. Show time is 8 p.m. For information on lodging packages, events, activities, accommodations, ticket sales and showroom entertainment, call 1-800-BE-LUCKY or visit www.montbleuresort.com.
