Temecula Wine Country Special EventsThere's more going on at the wineries than just tastings. What's Up? Temecula has everything you need to know about concerts, events and activities in Temecula's famous wine country.
German rock band, the Scorpions, have been rocking audiences “like a hurricane” for half a century and, after seeing them live in 1983, Jeff Ciavardini’s admiration for the band was solidified. A few decades later, Ciavardini wanted to take his love for Scorpion’s music one step further than the average fan.
On Saturday, March 28th, Lorimar Winery presents Magic and Wine Night, where attendees can enjoy an evening of wine, nibbles and a little slight-of-hand.
On Saturday, March 7th and Sunday, March 8th, from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm, the Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association presents their annual World of Wine (WOW) Barrel Tasting event, which allows ticket-holders to explore everything Temecula wine country has to offer, all in one weekend.
Brothers Kanan, Kyle and Kory Cox formed Kanan Road over fifteen years ago, as teenagers, in Palmdale. Together with Rick Rickards on bass and drummer Brandon Scott, Kanan Road has found success opening for such big names as The Band Perry, Scotty McCreery, and Blue Oyster Cult, among others. They can be found headlining at venues all over Southern California, including locally at the Temecula Balloon and Wine Festival and all over wine country.
Most of the wineries in Temecula Valley are now offering live entertainment on weekends, but even though some of the venues may be intimate and local, the performers are still the best in the business. When Southern California-based trio, Nathan James at the Rhythm Scratchers, head to Miramonte Winery, one of their favorite “hometown” venues, they bring a unique blend of genres spanning decades of great music.
Is your closet harboring a reindeer sweater ala “Bridget Jones’s Diary” (or, as Bridget says, reindeer jumpa’) and nowhere to wear it? Well, shake off the dust and shoo away the moths because Thursday, December 18th is your lucky day!
If you’ve been anywhere in wine country lately, there’s a good chance you’ve seen Missy Andersen’s face on a sign, poster or tabletop advertisement because the singer and her band are a hot commodity. Performing at a handful of Temecula wine country locations this month, R&B vocalist Andersen started as many performers do, in New York City as a backup singer for other artists.
Have you ever driven through the Temecula vineyards, looked up at the beautiful rolling hills and thought, “I would love to run up there.” Well, now is your chance! On Sunday, October 26th, the Temecula Half Marathon and 5K races are returning to wine country for the fourth year in a row and, for those who have participated in the half marathon over the past three years, the unique, country course is just as difficult as ever.
It’s hard to frequent any establishment in the Temecula area without seeing the rock band, Crimson Crow, perform at least once because these guys are never hurting for a gig.
It’s hard to think about the iconic music of the 1980’s without remembering the award-winning Mtv music video for The Cars’ number one single, “You Might Think,” where a cartoonish representation of lead singer Ric Ocasek appears to model Susan Gallagher as a submarine, a robot monster and even King Kong. The image may seem silly now, but the music of The Cars helped shaped not only the sound of their own decade but has also inspired musicians ever since.
