A Napa Valley trip promises to delight your senses at any time of the year. The region combines world-famous wine tastings with spectacular culinary pairings and sights of sun-drenched rolling hills. With a rich and exotic combination of food, drink and scenery, it is hard not to go into a sensory overload in wine country. Add a generous dose of music to that and you have the perfect vacation!
The Napa Valley Jazz Getaway is just around the corner. Hosted by jazz instrumentalist Brian Culberson, this year’s festival will be held from June 6 – June 10. While the main concerts will be held at the regal Lincoln Theater, outdoor performances will take place at Oxbow Commons in downtown Napa. Here’s a snapshot of what to expect at the 5-day live music event:
- The Artists: This year’s star-studded lineup includes the iconic group, The Commodores, smooth jazz’s rising star Lindsey Webster, R&B royalty Faith Evans, and saxman Kirk Whalum. Watch out for enthralling performances by Bobby Caldwell, Norman Brown, Peter White, Jonathan Butler, Avery*Sunshine, Adam Hawley, and Al-McKay All-Stars, amongst others. Enjoy a laugh riot with the legendary comedian, Sindbad. Groove to delightful spins of The World Famous Rick & Russ Show with CJ Flash, at the after-parties.
- The Silent Auction: Over the last 5 years, the Silent Auction has raised close to $250,000 USD for promoting music education in schools, through The GRAMMY® While contributing to this cause, enjoy generous complimentary pours from several local wineries.
- The Cigar Events: During the late night after-parties, cigar aficionados can head to the Cigar Party in the Back, hosted by Cecil Ramirez. These events are a great way to mingle with smokers, chill by the poolside and enjoy soothing tunes in the background.
- The Themed Nights and Dress Codes: The theme of the opening night of the festival is Jazz Legend Night. Come dressed to impress in wine country chic! For the second day, Friday Night Funk Night, the theme is funk, so anything goes. For the weekend events that are outdoors, stick to comfortable footwear. Bring your fashionable hats and scarves, and don’t forget to load up on sunscreen.
