Yummy winemakers and delightful staff of Bella Grace are now offering a weekly Friday concert for their patrons. If you love good wine and good music as well as relaxing with friends, it's an event to put on your calendar every Friday or whichever Friday most appeals to your musical tastes. The Friday concert series are generally $10 for the music and another $10 for dinner prepared by Hotel Sutter's Chef Darius. However, they are holding an extra special concert event on Friday, Aug.. 29, 2014 with the legendary Western entertainer Dave Stamey.
Dave Stamey has been twice voted Entertainer of the Year, three times Male Performer of the Year and twice Songwriter of the Year by the Western Music Association. He has also received the Will Rogers Award from the Academy of Western Artists. This special appearance at Bella Grace is a rare treat and tickets are limited The cover charge is $20 ($15 for club members) in advance or $25 day of event. Dinner is optional and this event's dinner offering by Hotel Sutter's Chef Darius is $12 for chicken or tri tip or $15 for a mixed plate of both.
This musical cowboy has been a mule packer and a dude wrangler but has found that he prefers delighting audiences throughout the United States over "being stomped by angry horses." His western charm is delightful; his songs a country serenade bringing listeners closer to the land, the ways of the ranch, the beauty of the West and life in general.
Concert attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets for the grass. The concert setting is outdoors at Bella Grace's Sutter Creek location at 73 Main Street, CA 95685. Sutter Creek's Main St. is filled with enchantment so if you are making a trip out, you might want to arrive early and visit the various shops or just enjoy strolling along the quaint and historic walks. The concerts all run from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Beer and wine by the glass or bottle are available for purchase and who doesn't want a glass of Bella Grace wine, in particular their Old Vine Zin? (No outside alcohol please.)
