The Cove Kicks Off Fall with Reds, Whites & Blues!

Wine Blues Party Lakeside Kelowna Okanagan Music Cove

As the last days of summer slip away, the perfect time to embrace all the wonderful aspects of an Okanagan autumn has arrived. The air has begun to clear, the leafs will soon transition into their warm fall hues and the winemakers are ready to initiate their harvests. Comfy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and deep glasses of velvety red wine all help with our transition into the cooler days ahead. Here at The Cove, we like to kick off the season of fall with a bang and celebrate with an event we call “Reds, Whites, & Blues”.

 

What and When is “Reds, Whites & Blues”?

Reds, Whites & Blues is a fantastic fusion of Okanagan wine, food and music, all placed on the beautiful waterfront of Okanagan Lake. Whether you are a Okanagan resident or are simply passing through on vacation, this is a party you don’t want to miss. Yes, as the name implies, you will be able to indulge in a wide range of world class red wines, white wines and blues music simultaneously!

This is will be the 6th annual event and we plan to keep the momentum rolling with a plethora of amazing local wineries and the Bonfire Restaurant to excite our guests palates. Keep your eye open for these local rockstars:

-Quail’s Gate

-Mission Hill

-Mt. Boucherie Winery

-The Hatch

-Volcanic Hills

-Kalala Organic Winery

-Summerhill

 

These businesses have a reputation in Kelowna for delivering some of the most tantalizing and delicious food and wine in the entire region.

This year, the event will be held on Friday, September 29th, with reception starting at 6:30PM. The reception will run for approximately one hour, with the Chef Stations opening up at 7:30PM. At 9:30PM there will be a cash bar that will open up, which will fuel the dance party which will last until approximately 11:30PM.

 

Clues About the Blues

The perfect pairing to an epic event is an atmosphere full of soulful harmonies, rhythms and musical injections. Once again, the amazing Sherman (Tank) Doucette will headline the show and is sure to have the crowd grooving along to the wavering tunes of his harmonica.

Sherman Doucette is originally from Saskatchewan but left there early on with only his love for music and a twenty dollar bill. In Vancouver, Sherman became infatuated with the Chicago blues style and found his calling playing in a series of local blues bands. Sherman has since played with some legendary musicians such as John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, Sonny Land Slim, Pinetop Perkins, Jim Byrnes and Long John Baldry.

Today he proudly calls the Okanagan his home where he is constantly performing and recording with his band, “TANKful of Blues”. He promises to bring incredible passion and conviction to the event and will give attendees a new found love for blues.
