GENERAL ADMISSION | 6:30 PM
“Live at the Vineyards” is a wine tasting with delicious food, live music, dancing, and a fabulous silent auction.
LET’S GET READY TO DANCE AND PARTY!
We are pleased to announce the Count Basie Orchestra will headline. The orchestra is a jazz big band that was founded in 1935 by the legendary pianist and bandleader, Count Basie. Basie led the band for over 50 years until his death in 1984, and the band has continued to perform and record under the leadership of various directors in the years since. The current Count Basie Orchestra is active and touring, with its musical director being trumpeter Scotty Barnhart. The band has a long and illustrious history, having recorded with some of the biggest names in jazz, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and Tony Bennett, and winning 18 Grammy Awards over the years. This 19-piece orchestra will swing the blues and present an unforgettable evening of music.
