Evolution is coming back to play June 25th
If you didn't experience the sound of Evolution last year don't miss it this year. They have a unique and relaxing sound that lends itself to the surrounding environment.

Girls Night Out June 29th
Girls Night Out is the last Wednesday's of the month. That means female gender only guys. This is not a speed dating opportunity! See you June 29th and Poppy's Roadside Diner will be there too.
Live - Music Police I'm Playing You!
Update: No more calls but emails that suggest the cost could be substantially less, go figure. As far as I know Nate Donchez didn't visit me as he said he would or at least announce he was there. It might have been because customer Chet was looking menacing in the corner of the room! I am sure they will kick up their bullying tactics once they see that Evolution is coming back to play this month. As always I will keep you informed to the ever unfolding saga with the music gestapo's.

[Here is my original post] During the past year the music licensing agency BMI has been harassing wineries relentlessly to pay them an exorbitant fee to have live music at their venues. The $1,500 fee they requested is not something many of us can afford or justify. BMI is using a software program to scan website for key words like Live Music, Bands and Playing to name a few.  Just for kicks and grins I have added those key words to this posting  to see how long it is before they contact me. Here is my disclosure, "I do not allow artist that play cover songs/licensed music at the winery. Yes I believe music artist need to be paid for their art." I will report back how long it takes and the bullying response that I will get!
