Rally your friends and put on your dancing shoes. It’s time to enjoy an evening of live jazz at the Wine Country Inn on Saturday, April 25, from 8 to 11 pm in the Vineyard Ballroom.
Back for a return engagement, Influx Jazz Quartet, a popular local band, will provide instrumental jazz for listening and dancing, Influx features Chris Krabacher and Tim Currey on guitars, Jason McGlynn on saxophone, and Duane Moore on the drums.
"Influx was a big hit when they played for us a couple of months ago," says Event Coordinator Juliann Adams. "They can handle everything from Miles Davis to light jazz and danceable tunes. It should be a fun evening for everyone. Guests can hear great jazz, grab a drink and bite to eat and dance the night away.“
Adams says response to the monthly jazz nights has been great. “I think locals in the valley really get a kick out of having a nice place to hear good live music and have drinks with their friends — and our hotel guests definitely love the Club atmosphere as an added attraction, “ she says.
All the inn’s special prices feature lucky sevens. April’s Jazz 777 Club will offer a cash bar, bar menu, as well as beers from Palisade Brewery and premium top shelf liquors from Palisade’s Peach Street Distillers. There is a $7.70 cover charge. Everyone 21 and over is welcome.
To encourage responsible drinking and safety, the hotel is offering an optional special room rate of $77.70 for a standard room for two, including a complimentary pass to the Jazz 777 Club for those who prefer to stay over instead of driving home. The room night is not required for enjoying Jazz 777.
Adams points out that guests can turn the Jazz 777 room special into a two-night weekend getaway by coming in on Friday and visiting wineries, art galleries and studios, shops, restaurants and other attractions on Saturday before the big party.
No reservations are required to attend March Jazz 777, but guests who prefer to stay over should give the hotel a call to book accommodations at the special rate. Parking is free.
The Inn is located at 777 Grande River Dr. Palisade (Exit 42 Off I-70). Phone numbers are 970-464-577 and 888-850-8330.
