The Sunset Concert Series at Shelton Vineyards is a monthly series of ticketed concerts starting in May and running through October.
Spend a pleasant Saturday evening at the winery's outdoor amphitheater listening to live music, dancing and sipping award-winning wine. The types of music available run the gamut from beach music to R&B to party tunes to retro '80s music.
The series kicks off May 20 with The Breakfast Club, America's Favorite 1980s Tribute Band. On June 17, the versatile band Too Much Sylvia makes a return trip to Shelton Vineyards, focusing on a set list of beach and R&B. On July 15, enjoy the heart and soul of beach music with The Embers, followed on Aug. 19 by the Swingin' Medalions, the Party Band of the South.
The next show in the series features the legendary Band of Oz, playing everything from pop to soul to rock to beach, and the series concludes Oct. 28 with the Will Jones Band, a high-energy, fun-lovin' band out of Winston-Salem.
Bring your lawn chairs and your dancing shoes for a wonderful evening in the vineyards. Food and wine available for purchase at each show. Guests may bring their own food, but no alcoholic beverages can be brought on the premises.
Make a full day of it with a vineyard tour and lunch or dinner on property at the winery's Harvest Grill. Lodging is available at the Hampton Inn Shelton Vineyards.
Tickets to each concert are $20 in advance and $25 at the gate and also concerts take place rain or shine.
