February 3, 2012--Last Friday Jam

In celebration of music.
In celebration of our talented entertainers.
In celebration of 8 1/2 years.
In celebration of YOU.

We are going out with a musical crescendo! Join us on our last City Wine Sellar Friday Night Music Series on Friday, February 3rd, starting at 5 pm. We have invited any and all of our previous Friday night performers to come for an evening jam session and open mic. We plan to start at 5 pm and keep going as long as everyone is having a great time. It'll be standing room only, so be prepared for that. We will try to seat as many people as possible and will try to serve you as efficiently as possible. Patience and fun will be the words of the evening. Unfortunately, we won't be able to do reservations on that evening. As always, there will be no cover charge. Some of the performers we anticipate: Chuck Hodges, James Ethan Clark, Charlie Hoidal, Chris Palestrant, Nick Simmons, Adam Nixon, Tim Orton, members of Country Classics Band, members of Just 3, EZ Malone, Karaoke Kelly, Toby Tate, Tom Vinick and Wes Smith of Pairadocs, and young man Landry Slaughter (son of Donna Donaldson). And we're still working on pulling it together. If you've played here before and would like to come, please do. If you've never played here before and would like to come, please do. Call 252-335-1163 for more information. (We'll provide the amps and mics. No drums. Keeping it simple.)

Hee Haw! John Anderson (guitar), Mercer Long (guitar), Jerry Long (drums), Steve Ackley (Mandolin and vocals, Dickey Ferrell (pedal Steel guitar), Wayne Sanders (fiddle, banjo), Mike Albertson (Bass, guitar). Cowboy boots and hats aren't required, but sure do help add to the authenticity of the evening. Music from 7-10, Deli fare served until 9 pm. Call 252-335-1163 for more information.

January 6, 2012 -- Nick Simmons

Enjoy the amazing talent of Nick Simmons, who will be playing in solo acoustic mode, Friday night, January 6, at City Wine Sellar. Nick is a natural musician. When he plays, you can just FEEL his love for music. As a solo entertainer, Nick tones down the "distortion and the volume and lets the music speak for itself." And it does. It truly does. Nick is a truly talented singer, songwriter, and musician. I am proud to know him personally and love having him perform at City Wine Sellar. Music from 7-10 pm; Deli fare served till 9 pm. Call 252-335-1163 for more info.
