Cellar Party 2016 A Total Blast!

Cellar Party 2016 fun

CellarParty2016-2
This year’s Cellar Party was….well, not in the cellar since it was so warm, and all that much more fun because of it!  We fired up the fire pits, danced to the Hi-Pointe Soul Revue, ate delicious Filipino barbecue, and generally had a blast visiting all night.

A huge thanks to everyone that came out to enjoy the evening with us.  We hope you had a great time!  We also owe a big thank you to Bob Riley of Fairly Reliable Catering for catering the event along with major help from Lee & Theresa Watson, and Clyde’s cousin Roger Emmons.  And to those of you who helped in other ways (I’m especially looking at you fire-bugs!) we truly appreciated your efforts!

Here’s a few more photos of the action:

Upcoming Cellar Party

flyer for 2016 Cellar Party

flyer for 2016 Cellar PartyWe are kickin’ it into high gear to get ready for Saturday’s end-of-harvest celebration, our annual Cellar party!  We’ll be enjoying live music from 5-9pm, dinner ($10/person) at 6pm, and lots of fun give-aways throughout the night.  Dinner is served first come, first served while supplies last.  We don’t take reservations, just pay for dinner when you arrive, or at the beginning of the buffet line.

Now, off I go to create baskets for a few of the give away items. Give us a call if you have any questions, otherwise, we’ll see you Saturday. Cheers!

Happy Halloween and October Roundup

Robin and Polly enjoy an October afternoon of live music and friends at Peaceful Bend

Whew, what a beautiful and crazy October we’ve experienced here at Peaceful Bend. The colors haven’t been fantastic around here, but the weather has been warm and wonderful for our live music events this month.

I had full intentions of doing a recap post after each Saturday concert here, but alas, I fell short of my goal after the first weekend recap. So I thought I’d make up for that here on the last day of the month.  Here are several pictures I captured from the other October weekends around Peaceful Bend.

Elliott Ranney played on the second weekend.  His smooth jazz and folk matched the mellow afternoon perfectly.

Robin made friends with one of our kitties, Polly!

Pepe worked the tables too and made sure everyone knew they had a friend!

Lisa Jones played the third Saturday and as usual, we loved her vocals.  She even had a cool new harmonizer that really set off her voice.

I’m afraid I didn’t get a chance to pull out my camera the next weekend while the Dirt Floor Ramblers played, but this past weekend I made sure to do so.  The Jason Nelson Duo turned out to be energetic, super nice, and great musicians as well.

Pepe was up to his normal antics this weekend as you can see!

And another highlight for the weekend was when the duo brought up guest vocalist, Timmery, to join them. Her voice was powerful and nuanced so we had to cheer for another song from her.

We are rapidly coming up to our annual Cellar Party on Saturday, November 5, 2016.  We’ll be enjoying live music, dinner, and gift drawings from 5-9pm.  Hope to see you soon!
