Live at the Vineyards 2015 was the most successful yet! More than 1,200 jazz fans joined us to celebrate our 30th anniversary on August 8, 2015 with a sold-out evening of live music, gourmet feasting, wine tasting, and a silent auction at Balistreri Vineyards. 

Event photos can be viewed here. For video, click here.

The H2 Big Band 16-piece orchestra - comprised of world-class soloists including founders Al Hood and Dave Hanson - kicked off the evening with special guest vocalist Kevin Mahogany.

Five-time Grammy winner Dianne Reeves and her quartet - featuring John Beasley (piano), Romero Lubambo (guitar), Reginald Veal (bass), and Terreon Gully (drums) - headlined the evening.

The People's Choice Award for Best Restaurant went to Balistreri Vineyards! Second place went to Frijoles Colorado and Walter's Pizzeria earned third. See the full menu here.

KUVO Goes Live for Jazz Appreciation Month!

Apr 7, 2018

KUVO appreciates and celebrates jazz every day.  But since the Smithsonian Institution designated April as Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM), we’re happy to make this month an occasion to raise the flag a little higher and shine a little extra light on the jazz art form. 

Feeling lucky? Everybody Wins will kick-off at 5:30pm on the dance floor - $20 will get you a prize valued at $25 up to $600! Come see Silent Auction offerings...Baskets full of goodies, Art, Pottery, Vacations, and more in the main dining room!

The Silent Auction and Everybody Wins are fun activities at Live at the Vineyards. A very dedicated team of volunteers and staff have been busy procuring items from the following individuals, businesses and organizations.


We are pleased to present KUVO's signature fundraiser and event, Live at the Vineyards 2016 - an unforgettable evening of wine tasting, gourmet feasting, auction, dancing, and live music with Monty Alexander and the Harlem-Kingston Express!
