Downtown Bend has a new, live jazz music hub, The Wine Shop and Beer Tasting Bar. Every third Saturday, beginning March 22 and running monthly, The Wine Shop will present top local and regional jazz artists performing live in an intimate, European type atmosphere.
The jazz series kicks off with Miguel de Alonso who performs instrumental guitar Latin Jazz. His music is characterized by the use of rumba flamenco rhythms and powerful guitar strumming. Downbeat for all performances is at 8pm with music until 10:30pm.
Admission is $10 and seating is limited. It’s recommended purchasing advance tickets or arriving early for the best seats.
Deco Moon Jazz, featuring local favorite Lori Fletcher on vocals will take the stage on April 19. And on May 17, experience The Lisa Dae Trio featuring guitarist Robert Lee and the refined jazz vocal styling’s of Lisa Dae. Additional artists will be announced in the coming months.
“Great jazz and fine wine and beer in an intimate setting is an experience that bridges European and American cultures, says Melanie Betti, owner of The Wine Shop and Beer Tasting Bar. “With the lineup of top artists booked for every third Saturday, I hope to bring a new “jazz” exposure to Bend where artists and music lovers help support a diverse and thriving downtown culture.”
