Our Tailgate Thursday summer music series continues on August 24 with Local Vocals!
LOCAL VOCALS is an eclectic acoustic trio featuring the vocal stylings of Cindy Perfater, former lead singer with Charlottesville’s Houserockers Band for over 25 years, Pat Burns guitarist/vocalist formerly with the The Kool Katz and City Lights; and Mike Perfater guitarist/vocalist who spent nearly three decades with The Houserockers Band as its founder and leader. The trio’s musical style relies heavily on tight three part harmonies, with all three members alternating as lead singers.
With a powerful vocal chemistry, LOCAL VOCALS performs a wide variety of traditional classic acoustic rock of The Eagles, Crosby, Stills & Nash, America and Jimmy Buffett along with familiar modern selections of The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Linda Ronstadt and ambitious unplugged versions of pop and rock groups whose music spans 6 decades.
We'll continue to fire up the grills every Thursday through August 31 from 6 to 9 pm. Bring your own food to grill and enjoy a fun, laid back night at the vineyard. With free admission and live music on the patio, it's the perfect way to start your almost-weekend. Don't forget to pack lawn games and picnic blankets, and children and leashed dogs are welcome!
