8/31/2019 Bottleneck Blues Band
Bottleneck is fronted by Noah Bell and is backed up by an all-star lineup with Randy Monroe on the bass guitar (Linda Hornbuckle Band), Franklin Spicer (Pegasus Project) on keys and Don Worth (Lloyd Jones) kickin’ the drums. Bottleneck plays red-hot funky dance blues designed to make your body move. They are currently debuting new material on their second album “Storm Bringer.” The title track is going to be featured on next year’s KGON’s Waterfront Blues Festival 2019 CD. Their first CD “Twenty First Century Blues” was warmly received and the second has been doing even better. The band keeps getting big and better shows. They are currently in a regular rotation of regional clubs.
Not to be pigeonholed these guys consistently cross over for the younger rock audience as well! The performances and growing fan base are proof that if you’re looking for a band that people can understand and dance to these are your boyz!
“We are followers of the three Kings: BB, Albert, and Freddie. We also listen to a lot of Buddy Guy, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters.”
If you’re from out of town – or just want to get away from town – plan to spend the weekend camping on our grassy field behind the winery amongst the vines. Each space is just $20 for the first night and $15 for each additional night. Learn more here.
