Music Matters - Chris Robinson Brotherhood to play the BING!

NOT-TO-MISS MUSIC. Some of the best music begs to be experienced LIVE! Chris Robinson Brotherhood, the ultimate jam band with depth, roots and stunning musicianship will perform LIVE at the Bing Crosby Theater, November 27, 2018. Secure your seats at and I'll see you there.

SPOKANE, WA. : Nearly 30 years ago, The Black Crowes - fronted by vocalist Chris Robinson put rock 'n roll on notice with a unique Southern sound of rock. These days, at 51 Robinson fronts Chris Robinson Brotherhood (CRB) and again its rock done differently. The sound is hard to contain into a single genre - Its jam band rock but with influences of jazz, bluegrass, funk/soul/r&b, pop country and even blues. Although hard to label, it's uniquely great and this is a not to miss show at possibly the most intimate venue of the tour.

The band is riding a creative wave with a slew of studio and live records amidst a rigorous tour schedule that only seems to fuel their fire even further. Their most recent album--the stellar 'Barefoot In The Head’--marks The CRB's third studio release in just two years. Overspilling with stunning musicianship and infectious energy, the album showcases the continued growth of Robinson's songwriting partnership with his bandmates: guitarist Neal Casal, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Jeff Hill and drummer Tony Leone.

There’s a kind of adventurousness that can only come from five artists tuned into the same sonic wavelength, leading Uncut Magazine to call The CRB’s music, "a celebration of how American musical traditions can be at once honored and psychedelically expanded."

"The real inspiration for this band is what I think of as roots music--which is everything: jazz, bluegrass, rock and roll, funk/soul/R&B, pop, country, blues, Appalachian folk. As a band, we all love all of it" Chris Robinson, Guitar World (2017)

"It’s hippie baroque,'" says Chris Robinson – a stew of rock, blues, country, funk and soul sounds topped with a healthy smattering of spacey psychedelia and wrapped in a jam-band aesthetic. Chris Robinson, Rolling Stone Magazine (2017)

Marys & Mimosas - Booze for Breakfast

Bringing Back The Breakfast Drink                  Marys and Mimosas

Both the Bloody Mary and Mimosa make it socially acceptable to drink before noon.  While this can be a problem if the drinking continues all day, on its own, a Mary or a Mimosa is a beautiful thing.
The Bloody Mary can be a meal in itself - a healthy sounding one at that with a slightly morbid name. Bloody Marys traditionally are made with vodka and tomato juice which is then heavily spiced and garnished. Some say this drink was conceived in Paris in the roaring 20's.  Others trace it back to the 30's as a cure to the dreaded hangover. Either way, this breakfast cocktail has evolved with many twists being added along the way.
The Mimosa, on the other hand, is a mainstay of the classy champagne brunch with a straightforward recipe: champagne or sparkling wine and orange juice. Yes, this is a drink you can make yourself. It was supposedly invented in back in 1925 at a Parisian Hotel. As with most cocktails, there a…

Are some wines more romantic than others?

Absolutely! Port for instance is a seductively slow sip that vies for the title of most romantic wine. Additionally, Port is ideal for winter thanks to the warmth of brandy added during the winemaking process. 
I’m thrilled about receiving the highly anticipated release of Quinta de la Rosa’s 30-Year-Old Tawny Port. This collectible port celebrates the thirtieth anniversary since the Father/Daughter team of Tim and Sophia Bergqvist started Quinta de la Rosa in the Douro. This beautiful amber color port is aged well for three decades. Respectfully, slow down and don’t rush this. This is definately a bottle you need to spend some time with. It has enormous elegance and complexity. 

Winemaker’s Notes: On the nose, slightly dried fruit aromas with touches of balsamic vinegar, coffee and exotic wood being just some of the components. On the palate it is simply delicious, almost light but with incredible intensity of flavor, soft, mouth filling with great persistence. Food Match: Best served…

Drink Pink! The rise of Rosé

Rosé sales has exploded in the US over the past few years, especially during the warm weather months. It taste like summer and all the best ways. In France, it now eclipses the sale of white wine. Yes, everything‘s coming up rosé.

It’s not surprising that when the acclaimed Argentina’s Bodega Santa Julia from chose select wines for the "wine in a can" trend, they picked a luscious rosé.

This Malbec Rosé is bursting with summer berries such as strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. I found it charmingly crisp and delicate on the palate. It’s an easy sip and a good balance between sugar and acidity. It’s an ideal pairing for weekends at the lake, alfresco dining and adventure.
I get the convenience of the grab and go can but I’m still packing stemware as sticking your nose in the glass and taking in the aroma effects the taste. Yes, im that into wine. A rosé is a very food friendly wine and pairs with almost anything. Personally, I love rose with grilled seafood and it’…
