Live at the Vineyards 2019 (6)“Launched in 2006, ‘Live at the Vineyards’ grew out of a vision shared by KUVO JAZZ, Balistreri Vineyards and Yasu Kizaki of Sushi Den, to bring people together with music, a gourmet feast, wine tasting and dancing.

In lieu of this year’s event, we invite people to tune into KUVO JAZZ to celebrate not only the community connections that make the event possible, but also the diverse group of artists who have shared their talent over the years,” said Tina Cartagena, senior vice president of KUVO JAZZ radio. “It’s the community support we’ve received from our family of listeners over the past 35 years that makes an annual event like this possible.”
