    Come taste terrific wines (I love the Hendrix) and enjoy my tunes. I play from 4 to 8pm. If it's really nice out I may be playing on the patio outside. They got grills if you want to bring some thing to cook! Just drink what Studio serves!

    I will be playing from 6 to 9pm in the upstairs of the gallery. $5 gets you entry, wine tickets and all the art your senses can take in. Come say hi and enjoy a few tunes.

    4 hour solo guitar and vocal. Come enjoy delicious wine while listening. Studio Winery does not offer food but provides a grill for cooking your own as long as you drink their wines. The owners Doug and Kathy Jackson are very kind hosts.

    This is a wonderful evening of enjoying live music, wine and hors doevres whilst strolling amongst the art displays of local artists. It is a beautiful old restored warehouse with huge beams of wood and metal and nostalgia oozing from the walls!! I'll be playing in the upstairs venue from 6 to 9pm while my friends Suzanne and Sandie of Just Duet are performing downstairs!
