- For Immediate Release -
Special Rock ALL-STAR CONCERT at EdenVale Winery!
A rare musical event is coming to southern Oregon. Singer/songwriter, MATIA, who will be performing at the Country Crossing Music Festival on July 29th (10 am Boxcar Stage) at The Expo has announced that she has added a special one night only show on Sunday, July 30th, 2017 at 6:30pm. The recently scheduled concert will be held at EdenVale Winery and feature her All-Star band consisting of Los Angeles based award-winning musicians. In addition to working on Emmy Award winning shows, and Platinum and Gold selling records, this ensemble has played and recorded with the Who's Who in the music business. Combined, their resumes include live performances and studio work in multiple genres (rock, pop, r&b, blues, jazz).
" I wanted to create something more intimate for the local community while my band was here in the Rogue Valley. When I asked them about adding another day to the tour, they were very excited about playing at one of the local wineries." said Matia. Her producer and notable session guitarist, Kenny Mazur (Robert Palmer, The O'Jays, Marvin Gaye, INXS and more), had visited the area last year and enjoyed his stay so much that he spread the word to other successful session and touring musicians from Los Angeles. Traveling from southern California and joining Mazur on guitar is Jon Woodhead (Leon Russell, ACE, Maria Muldaur, Dave Koz) and keyboardist, Sanford "Sandy" Stein (John Legend, Dr. John, Julio Iglesias, Gloria Estefan, Gladys Knight, Chuck Berry, Will Downing, Dionne Warwick, JoeJonas, Kashif, Hanson and many more). "We were lucky to get Sandy here for this show. He is an amazing musician who was able to fill in for Steve Robbins (Robert Palmer, Sting, Ashford & Simpson, Irene Cara among many others), who is based in LA. Steve is playing on my new CD but unexpectedly couldn't make this trip.", explained Matia. Sought after drummer, David Bolen, is also recording tracks for Matia's upcoming CD and will be the rhythmic anchor for the live ensemble. Renown herbalist and bassist, Donnie Yance (Martha Stewart Show) will round out the All-Star band.
Jennifer Barkley, a spokesperson, from EdenVale Winery said, "We are honored to host this amazing event. Last time we had a major concert was when Jim Belushi played here at EdenVale Winery. We are expecting a sell-out crowd again because its a rare chance for our community to hear, meet and hang out with these incredible musicians. We are only selling 200 tickets this time. " The winery will be serving wine and food for purchase along with chair and table seating. Tickets are $32 and being sold at local merchant outlets: The Music Coop (Ashland), HillTop Music (Phoenix), Cheesemonger's Wife (Jacksonville). Tickets can also be purchased on-line at MatiaMusic.com. All seats are general admission except VIP tables of eight can be purchased and reserved on-line. EdenVale Winery is located at 2310 Voorhies Road, Medford Oregon. The All-Star concert begins at 6:30pm on July 30th, 2017.
"It will be an evening of fine wine, food, friends and great music!" explained Matia.
