Maurice Car’rie dances to 30 years in Temecula Valley Wine Country

An event 30 years in the making, Maurice Car’rie Winery invites all to come and celebrate the anniversary of a lifetime. Temecula Valley Wine Country’s provincial winery will be decked out in lights for the evening event with live music and food that is not to be missed. The winery, established in 1986, has long since celebrated local artists with their weekly arts and crafts fair, where the white tents raise in the front parking area and local vendors showcase their wares Friday through Sunday. Now, for the remainder of the summer, Maurice Car’rie will feature a flurry of live entertainment offerings June 25 through Aug. 20.

“Visitors are invited to dance outside on the patio, under the lights, with a stellar line up of live bands,” Maurice Car’rie announced recently over social media. “Local artists will also join us to display their incredible photography and paintings over the summer.”

The Kepi Payne Project—a high energy band that performs an eclectic variety of tunes—will play June 25 and July 23. The blend of jazz, funk, blues and classic rock prove that this six-piece cover band has multiple tricks up their sleeve. According to the band’s website, this band has been inspired from many individual artists such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Al Green, Chaka Khan, Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks and well-known groups such as Steely Dan; Earth, Wind & Fire; Tommy James & The Shondells and The Temptations among others.

Additional events will include a mix of country and classic rock with Live Remedy on July 9. Aug. 20, come to hear one of wine country’s biggest local draws, Big Truth, perform classic rock.

If you love the sound of Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac, Bit Truth delivers with five musicians who celebrate their magical renditions of Fleetwood Mac’s classic hits. Lisa Jane Long, no stranger to wine country, exudes confidence on stage and has developed a huge Temecula and Murrieta following, as have fellow artists Laurie Richardson, Andy Long, Shawn McBride and Mike Higbie. Big Truth offers a wide range of music from popular dance songs to classic and ‘80s-inspired new wave tunes. A favorite offering in wine country, this show is guaranteed to draw a crowd of fun loving fans.
