There are some things that are best experienced live. The exciting moment your favorite sport’s team scores a winning goal, watching as your favorite author reads an excerpt from one of your favorite books, feeling the emotion of a skilled actor’s performance on stage that makes you forget the actor’s emotions aren’t “real,” and listening to a live band. Witnessing live entertainment fulfills the senses and can bring more joy than watching recorded entertainment on your television in your home or hotel room. Fortunately, there is plenty of live entertainment during the month of March to be found in Sonoma County and Napa Valley!
