Golden Crown Productions www.goldencrownproductions.com is the group that brings concerts to Wiens Family Cellars while benefiting those less fortunate with their fundraising efforts. They do an amazing job matching the winery venue up with bands of the past and the future. This year alone we’ve had Wild Child, Abby Road, The English Beat and a Country & Blues Festival. For pictures of the following groups go to www.goldencrownproductions.com/eventspics.html.
I wasn’t able to make it to the first two concerts, and The English Beat always draws a large crowd, but I was particularly blown away by the bands that performed at the Festival. They were incredible.
First on the run down was Poor Man’s Poison, www.myspace.com/poormanspoison. This group is relatively new and they are making a great name for themselves. Their music includes folk, Americana, country and a little bit of rock.
Next we were washed over with the sounds of Artwork Jamal, http://artworkjamal.com, a rhythm and blues group that is much like BB King.
Then to kick things up a notch or two out came Austin Law, www.myspace.com/austinlawband . This group began locally in the Inland Empire and has hit the charts with their country tunes and beautiful ballads.
Last but not least was Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, http://promiseofthereal.com. This group is extremely high energy and had the crowd rockin’-literally!!!
I must say I enjoyed this group of bands more than any concert I’ve attended so far. Call me crazy, but I loved the different but intertwining sounds presented by each group.
Next up on the concert tour is Berlin starring Terri Nunn. Remember “Take My Breath Away”? Well, come join us on Sept 18th for Berlin!
