Thursday, October 6th, 2011


Temecula wine country offers beautiful vineyards, a never-ending selection of wines in addition to well-appointed tasting rooms, gift shops and restaurants, but what are those delightful sounds that always seem to fill air? It’s music! With many wineries showcasing both local and national talent, there’s something for the music lover in everyone. If the only tunes you’re hearing these days comes out of a pair of headphones, maybe it’s time to inject some much-needed energy into your repertoire by going to see a live performance! After all, what could be better than spending an evening sipping wine, watching the sun go down and relaxing while listening to talented and creative artists make music? Here are marvelously musical ways for you to get out there and see some incredible musicians:

Do the cool, Autumn breezes make you long for the warm air of summer? Be instantly transported to the tropics by steel drummer Shaula Walko, whose rhythms of the Caribbean will make you feel like breaking out your flip flops and dancing the night away. Cougar Vineyards will feature Walko as well as other performers during the month of October, and you can see these concerts free of charge with the purchase of a wine tasting. Go here for dates, times and other details.

Dulfer made a splash on the international music scene in 1989 with her #1 hit, “Lily Was Here,” a collaboration with Eurythmics Dave Stewart, and has toured the world stage with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Prince, Marcus Miller, Beyonce, David Sanborn and countless others.  Don’t miss this very special evening- tickets are available here.

Need something a bit heavier? Shoot 4 Tuezday’s set list of classic and contemporary rock may be just what the doctor ordered.
