WE GOT THE GOODS
No need to consult your compass or click those ruby shoes: you’re in Seattle – land of musical chops – and we’ve got the goods. Here’s your sneak peak at the booty-shakin’ lineup:
Trey Busch from Sleight of Hand Cellars
Wine Rocks Seattle event emcee Trey Busch is all about the wine and music (so this event is perfect for him!). Busch has a long love affair with music (especially Pearl Jam) and it influences his winemaking style, branding and decor in the Sleight of Hand tasting room. Next time you’re in Walla Walla stop by and see Trey at Sleight of Hand Cellars where they’ve been making punk rock wines for punk rock minds!
SLEIGHT OF HAND CELLARS
Headliner: Timbre Barons
Info coming soon!
Gordy Rawson from Chatter Creek
To say that Gordy Rawson knows a thing or two about roots would be an understatement. His love of wine and knowledge of our region’s terroir has cultivated some mighty nice ‘Old World’ style wine, while his enthusiasm for music generates ‘Old School’ rifts that keep the house shakin’ and the feet tappin’.
Darren Des Voigne from Des Voigne Cellars
Darren Des Voigne is a big fan of fun. So much so that he and his wife Melissa, bottle it. Their wine is bold and un-apologetic, bright fruit and big wood. The resulting pour is soulful. Less than a sip, and a cursory glance at the art deco inspired wine labels and you can practically hear the music. Not to worry though, your imagination hasn’t bested you: a big fan of jazz and expressive music, Darren and his band, The Statesmen, bring their brand of goofball pop-punk that makes for a great palate cleanse.

Joyfield from Michael Florentino Cellars
Joyfield is a Seattle-based indie alternative band boasting powerful female vocals and intriguing instrumentals. Though drawing comparisons to Joy Formidable and Metric, the four-piece consistently reinvents the wheel and strives to create a sound and style truly unique to their own brand. Formed in 2010, Joyfield is comprised of college friends Ellie Hanes (vocals/keys), Michael Szember (guitar), and Karris Nicklaus (drums). Sean Lane joined on bass in 2013, and over the last year the unsigned group has made leaps and bounds towards achieving success.
