Lawn Concerts at The Winery
Music in the Vineyards 2015 is a series of open-air lawn concerts, to be held Saturday evenings during the summer on the spacious lawn of the Nissley Winery from 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm. Enjoy a romantic evening under the stars as the best of regional variety bands, light-rock and oldies groups perform for your listening pleasure and for dancing on tree-shaded patios. Bring a picnic supper, good friends and lawn chairs or a blanket for all. Note to families: Minors will not be admitted. Please read about "Minors and Small Children."
The Schedule will be published on this page after the bands have been booked, approximately April 1, 2015. Music which has been popular in the past will likely be continued. Descriptions of bands that played here in 2014 include: 1) classic light rock, 2) swing, blues, be-bop & Latin Jazz, 3) 70's & 80's R&B, funk and soul, 4) big band swing, 5) rich variety, Motown to present, 6) classic rock, soul & Motown, 7) 60's & 70's variety, 8) top 40, classic to current rock. We book only one band per evening, with rarely an exception.
The Concert Flyer will appear on the next page down in late-May or early-June. It will have longer descriptions of the bands and web links for them.
The Picnic Fare & Wine page describes the food concession, picnic suggestions and wine service.
