Tue, Aug 20 8:00 pm
Music can change wines flavors, which goes better with a fine Napa Valley Cabernet: Mozart or Metallica? Join City Winery for a special Music & Wine Pairing with the music of Elton John! We’ll be pairing the music of the iconic star with 4 of our favorite wines. This ticket is for general admission seating to the show, featuring the musical stylings of Elton John tribute band, The Rocketmen. Don’t miss out on a night of discovering the sensory connection behind wine and music. THE ROCKETMEN are a Nashville-based group of four accomplished, strong and super-tight players/vocalists whose sole mission in life is to rock you with the timeless music of the legendary Elton John. Perry Barton (keyboards) is a longtime dedicated student of Elton's unmistakable piano style. He also occasionally performs as a member of Felix Cavaliere's Rascals. Chip Martin (guitar) is familiar to Nashville audiences as a member of Vinyl Radio and Penny Opera. He is also an accomplished writer, producer, and session musician. Lance Hoppen (bass) is best known as a co-founder of the Pop/Rock band Orleans, who shared the Billboard charts with Elton with iconic hits like "Still the One," "Dance With Me" and "Love Takes Time." Brady Spencer (drums) performs regularly with artists such as "Nashville" star Charles "Chip" Esten and is now a full-time member of the classic rock band Orleans. His innate feel for the work of EJ drummer Nigel Olsson is a huge part of The Rocketmen's solid foundation.
