Rodney Strong Vineyards is more than just a pretty place. On any given day, visitors to Rodney Strong Vineyards can choose to taste award-winning wines, take a self-guided tour, or enjoy an informative, unforgettable guided tour of the winery. Then, there are the concerts. This year marks Rodney Strong’s 21st Annual Summer Concert Series. With only three shows left in the series now is the time to make sure to purchase your tickets for this month’s show.
On July 23, 2011 three names that headline shows of their own will be coming together to perform in Rodney Strong’s lovely venue called “The Green.” Euge Groove, Mindi Abair, and the Average White Band will each share their unique, award-winning music surrounded by lush vineyards.
Award-winning, charismatic saxophonist and composer, Euge Groove, is an artist with albums and singles that consistently top the charts. Free from the boundaries that categorize styles of music, Euge Groove creates music that captivates listeners of all ages.
Mindi Abair, saxophonist, singer, and songwriter is another artist bursting through boundaries to create magical, original music. Along with her chart-topping singles and albums, Mindi Abair received the Best International Instrumentalist award at the 2011 Wave Award in Toronto, and Best Female Artist of the Year at the 2011 Oasis Contemporary Jazz Awards.
The Scottish band, Average White Band, has been crossing the boundaries of funk, soul, and R&B for almost 40 years. Currently with two founding members and the addition of musicians from the United States, Average White Band continues to ignite audiences with music from their gold selling albums. Average White Band is Onnie McIntyre on guitar and vocals; Alan Gorrie on bass, guitar, and lead vocals; Fred “Freddy V” Vigdor on saxophone, keyboards, and vocals; Klyde Jones also on keyboard, bass, and lead vocals; and Rocky Bryant on drums.
