2014 Healdsburg Jazz Festival, May 30-June 8
Introducing the new Healdsburg Jazz & Wine Club, offering four hand-selected local wines three times a year, delivered with a CD from a new or familiar jazz artist. Proceeds go to support the Festival and its Music Education programs. Visit the site at healdsburgjazzwineclub.org.
Jazz & Wine Club Party Success
Members of our new Healdsburg Jazz & Wine Club, their friends and several passersby dropped into Stark Wine Company on Healdsburg Ave on Sunday, December 8 for a party. They found the Mark Levine Quartet playing jazz classics, appetizers from Bravas Bar de Tapas (while they lasted!), and wines from Stark including their 2011 Eaglepoint Ranch Syrah, one of the four selections in our inaugural shipment.
It was a fun and well-attended event, and we thank everyone who joined us at the Jazz & Wine Club Party celebrating our first Club Sampler release. You can view some photos on Facebook – and leave your comments and tell us what you thought of the party!
A Club for You and Your Friends: We want everyone to know what a good deal the new Healdsburg Jazz & Wine Club is, so we’ve put together this PDF. We urge you to download it and send it to your friends, or just tell them to visit this site to learn more. Better yet – here’s a thought – purchase a membership for those own-of-town people on your shopping list, and let them enjoy a taste of Healdsburg Jazz & Wine three times a year. Go here to sign up.
Jazz Dinners Return to Dry Creek Kitchen
The popular twice-weekly Jazz Dinners return to Dry Creek Kitchen the first week of December, to continue every Monday and Tuesday (except holiday eves) through March. Duos featuring Brazilian and other jazz music, from 7 to 10 pm nightly, make a perfect accompaniment to your Charlie Palmer dining experience. A special three-course Jazz Dinner is available for just $36, or $51 with paired wines. Two dollars from each meal will be donated to the Healdsburg Education Foundation. It’s great food and good music served up as only Healdsburg can! Musicians list found here.

Plus the annual Celebration Concert at Costeaux will return as well – all on Wednesday, February 26, 2014.
