Summer Crush Vineyard and Winery
4200 Johnston Rd, Fort Pierce, FL 34951
Concert / Live Music
According to the old song, “Christmas is the warmest time of the year,” and while that’s not exactly true here in Florida, Fort Pierce Jazz and Blues Society aims to heat up your holiday with some sizzling swing music, a little bit of dancing, and a whole lot of ho-ho-ho. In addition to helping to handily tackle the tough-to-buy-for friends, family members and service providers on your holiday gift list, we’ll even help get you in the holiday spirit with our annual holiday party – Ring a Ding Ding Holiday Fling with Big Band Swing. Yep! We know the name is crazy funny, but it’s the perfect name for a fun-filled evening of wine, music, merriment, dancing under the stars, and holiday cheer.
Mark your calendars now for Wednesday, December 19th, 6 p.m. sharp at Summer Crush Vineyard and Winery, just a mile past Meadowood and just south of Indrio Road. That’s when we gather all 17 pieces of FDO – the full-sized big band designed for dancing only. We’ll top each of their heads with a festive holiday chapeau and set them loose with, “A one, and a two…” and a whole lot of music, including favorites from the Great American Songbook and a few of your classic holiday faves, too. You can roast marshmallows by the fire, dance under the stars, sip on wonderful wine-slushies, and enjoy an evening of delightful holiday fun with the whole gang. Tickets are available in advance by contacting www.jazzsociety.org, or call our jazz hotline at 772.460.JAZZ today, and give yourself a little gift this holiday season.
Speaking of gifts, why make yourself crazy rushing through the traffic, fighting off the crowds, and wandering the big box stores and malls when the perfect gift is just a click or phone call away? Instead of a package of mystery meats or a calendar that sits in the drawer all year, why not give your postal carrier, hairdresser, or favorite neighbor or colleague the gift of music? A membership to Fort Pierce Jazz and Blues Society not only shares your good taste, but it also gives the gift of live, professional music through discounted tickets to events and performances all year long. Not only that, but it helps provide scholarships for young, talented musicians who want to pursue a career in music, so membership is the gift that keeps on giving and giving. Besides, if you ask us nicely, we’ll even gift wrap it and mail it for you! That’s how to make your gift-giving a veritable walk in the park this year and leave yourself time to enjoy some fun – like that Ring-a-Ding-Ding thing at Summer Crush Vineyard and Winery.
Whether it’s helping teach new students about jazz and blues through our master classes and special lesson programs, playing for the public on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and at the Saturday morning Jazz Market, or sharing our time and talent with other non-profits to help build a better community, we’re here to be a part of the community and help you make memories through music all year long. If you’d like to see our calendar, join the ranks of music lovers here on the Treasure Coast, or give a gift membership to someone you love, find us on Facebook, visit www.jazzsociety.org or call 772.460.JAZZ right now.
