06/24/2017 - The 2017 Summer Hill Top Concert Series at Brice Station Continues Tonight With Bob Eisenman Jazz Tr
Murphys, CA...June 24, 2017 - Doors open at 5:30pm & Music 7:00PM - 10:00PM with Bob Eisenman Jazz Trio & Now You Hazz Jazz. About The Bob Eisenman Trio... “With a wide range of jazz styles including Jazz Standards, Straight Ahead Jazz, Blues, Ballads, and Latin Jazz, the trio performs tunes from beautiful ballads to grooving up-tempo swingers including songs from the great American song book, jazz classics and lesser known jazz greats. “The wonderful thing about jazz”, says multi-saxophonist and leader Bob Eisenman, “is that its expressive, inventive and emotive music. As a trio plus vocalist, we’re making a body of great jazz music intimate and accessible. We hope that our music touches our audience at an emotional level as well as being enjoyable to listen to.” – From the Bob Eisenman Jazz Trio Facebook Page



“From Broadway to Birdland, during a very fertile era when more than 700 big bands were delivering their music around the USA on any one night, Copeland fine-tuned his talents. And with his genius for harmony and his arrangements––custom made for particular performers––he earned the respect of many of the top jazz players and singers of his time,… Henry Mancini, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Horace Silver.

As well as winning a Grammy for The Alan Copeland Singers with his arrangement of “Mission Impossible/Norwegian Wood.” From the early 50’s on, when the silver screen was reconfigured for TV in our living rooms, Copeland was a vital source of creativity for a variety of live programs which all needed new musical scores around the clock….

Now, with a musical career spanning seven decades, Alan “Weaver” Copeland’s natural gifts continue to grow. With his current jazz quartet you can experience the spontaneous process of jazz as you hear familiar songs re-emerging as fresh and viable possibilities.

Moment by moment, Jazz mimics a living system, a positive feedback loop of listening and music-making in real time which results in that thing called Swing. And although you might refrain from dancing on your feet, you will nevertheless dance in your heart because…Now You Hazz Jazz.” – From the Now You Hazz Jazz Website

06/24/2017 - Twisted Folk Concert Series Presents Front Country Saturday, June 24th, 2017
Vallecito, CA...Twisted Oak Winery is pleased to announce the next concert of our 2017 Twisted Folk Concert Series – Front Country. "What can you say about a band who says their influences include 'Bill Monroe, Paul Simon, Prince, and King Crimson?'" said winery owner Jeff Stai. “This is a band that isn't afraid to bring bluegrass into the 21st century. This ain't your father's twang-ey music!”





A yummy BBQ rib dinner with side salads will be available for purchase, along with yummy Twisted Oak wine, popcorn, and soft drinks. Concertgoers are welcome to bring their own picnics and non-alcoholic drinks, but we ask that no outside alcoholic beverages be brought in.

Seating at Twisted Folk concerts is outdoor festival style, first-come, first-served – bring a low beach-type chair or a blanket. We’re on top of a hill and there is always an evening breeze – it can get a little chilly after dark so please plan ahead.

Front Country

An acoustic band born in the land of tech innovation, Front Country was never going to be accepted as an authentic American roots band out of the gate. Cutting their teeth in progressive bluegrass jams in San Francisco’s Mission District and rehearsing in the East Bay, they learned to play roots music their own way, with the tools they had on hand. A mandolinist with a degree in composition and classical guitar. A guitarist trained in rock and world music. A bassist equally versed in jazz and bluegrass. A violinist with technique that could seamlessly hop between honky tonk and electropop. A female lead singer with grit and soul that was also a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. In a wood-paneled country dive bar in the shadow of the San Francisco skyline, Front Country forged a sound hell bent on merging the musical past with the future.

With the release of their debut full-length album Sake of the Sound in 2014, Front Country began the nose-grinding work of making their name as a national touring act. Still based in the San Francisco Bay Area, they would trek the 6,000+ mile circle around the U.S. for months at a time, introducing themselves for the first time to every room that would have them. Thanks to the glow of their contest wins, festivals around the U.S. caught wind and invited them to play for their large audiences, giving Front Country a crucial first break. Old Settlers in Austin, MerleFest in North Carolina, Wintergrass in Seattle, Strawberry in California and Grey Fox in New York, all took a chance on the promising new band and solidified Front Country’s hold on the imagination of progressive-leaning acoustic music fans.

What: Twisted Folk Concert Series Presents Front Country

Where: Twisted Oak Winery, 4280 Red Hill Rd at Hwy 4, Vallecito
When: Saturday, June 24th, 2017 – 8:00pm. Concertgoers admitted 7:00pm

06/17/2017 - The Jank Tones At Camp Connell General Store's The Beer Garden
Camp Connell, CA...Since 1929 The Camp Connell General Store has been serving generation after generation of customers. New Owner Dan Tulipani and his family are excited to continue and expand on the rich fabric of history and traditions that have made the store an integral part of the community. With Dining, Wine, Beer, Gifts, Groceries & Gas they have everything you need to make your high country adventure a great one.



The story of Camp Connell Continues....

The Camp Connell of today was largely influenced by the surging popularity of auto travel through the mountains inspired when Dr. D. Sargent of Angels Camp became the first to drive an automobile over Ebbetts Pass in 1908. Family camping was destined to become an extremely popular recreational activity To meet those demands, Jack Connell began construction of a campground, cabins, general store and gas pumps in 1928. He and his wife named their endeavor "Camp Connell". Opened for business in 1929, the general store and gas station have been in operation ever since. The Connell's continued to expand the store and added a café to serve the increasing number of visitors. By 1934 the Post Office was moved to the store and became "Camp Connell Station". The store was a local gathering place where local residents and vacationers alike would come to share news and leave messages, much as it is today. Occasionally, Circuit Court was convened in the building. Monte Wolfe, Art and Harry Schimke, the Whittles, Hunts, Tryons, Lombardis, and Airolas were frequent visitors.

While the popularity of the general store and café continued, the campground was closed in 1949 and the property was subdivided into lots selling for $600 each. The cabins remained as part of Camp Connell until the 1960's, when the highway was realigned to accommodate the ski resort and village at Bear Valley, as well as the development of Big Trees Village. The old highway became the current two accesses to Camp Connell and the property has stayed much the same ever since.

Today the Camp Connell General Store is one of the oldest Chevron stations in California as well as the longest continuously operated retail business between Murphys and Markleeville. It is a popular stop for visitors and a cherished part of the local community."

Milliaire Winery is a small family-owned winery founded by Liz and Steve Millier in 1983 in the cellar of their former home in Murphys CA. In 1990, the winery moved to an old Flying A gas station on Main Street in Murphys. The whole building was utilized for daily operations; barrels stacked in the repair bays, wine tanks in the backyard, bottling in the front yard and the tasting room in the office. There were jokes about what was in "those tanks" and a friend of the Milliers' dubbed it the "Roadside Chateau". Following their dreams of making premium wines from the Sierra Foothills, today Milliaire Winery has expanded and occupies over an 8,000 square foot winery with a dedicated barrel room and modern crush pad facility. The Milliaire Winery tasting room still resides in the old "Roadside Chateau" at 276 Main Street. Learn more about how Liz and Steve met!

The Winemaker

In 1975, Steve got his first winemaking job at David Bruce Winery in Santa Cruz after graduating from Fresno State with a degree in enology with an emphasis in viticulture. He knows the science and art of winemaking and grape growing from the ground up. After over 40 harvests, Steve is still exploring, learning and, most importantly, having fun in the winery. He is part alchemist, part artist and part farmer. The rest of us are fortunate to enjoy both his company and the fruit of his life's work - great bottles of wine! Read more about Steve's long winemaking career.
