Wine of the Week

| Entertainment | September 12, 2019

by Beth Heiserman, Reyes Winery

This past Saturday, we brought in Pinot Noir. This is a first time we will be producing this varietal. Pinot Noir grows well in cooler climates, and since we aren’t that cool of an area, we don’t grow it. It does grow well, however, about 45 miles north east of here in Lake Los Angeles.

Someone asked me, “So, now that we have them how soon can we drink the wine?” Well, once we finish processing them, they will need to age in barrels for 18 months, then we bottle them and they rest again in the bottles. I would say that in 2023-2024, the 2019 vintage could be released.

Pinot Noir tends to have notes of spices, tea, vanilla and berries; whereas Burgundy Pinot Noirs can be earthy and have floral aromas. Pinot Noir is used to make red wines as well as champagne and sparkling wine. It is one of the lightest colored wines, with light tannins. This is a difficult grape to make wine with, it can be unpredictable when its ages. Sometimes it has an earthy aroma which we call barnyard.

In the meantime, we have many other wines you can come and enjoy here in the tasting room. This month, I am featuring Grenache. The third Friday of September is #GrenacheDay. Celebrate with us on September 21st for our monthly hike and brunch and that will be the featured wine. Stay tuned for more details about brunch!

Watercolor Demo at Barnes and Noble by Anette Power

| Entertainment | September 12, 2019

Anette Power’s watercolor demo will be held on the Monday, October 21meeting of the Santa Clarita Artists Association. This event is free, open to the public and meets at 6:30 pm at Barnes & Noble, locayed at 23630 Valencia Boulevard in Valencia. Come early, standing room only by 6:30 pm.

“I find myself drawn to subject matters with light and color that celebrate life’s fleeting moments,” says Power. “I enjoy painting on location, immersing myself in the present and capturing a sense of our personal place in history. We each have a life story and whether I’m painting cars in Cuba, or light-filled moments of children or animals; I’m always struck by life’s fragility, the juxtaposition of beauty and joy interspersed with loss that exists in each of our lives. Art brings me more joy and I hope to share that with others.”

Award-winning artist Power credits her mom, who also paints; and growing up on an island off the Swedish coast for providing a childhood full of creative exploration and a love for the outdoors. This adventurous spirit brought Power to the States and eventually finding work in animation. There she spent more than a decade fine-tuning her sense of light, color and setting a mood, working as a background painter for studios like Disney, Warner Bros., Cartoon Network and Universal. Power now dedicates her time to painting in oils outdoor and in her studio.

Some of her awards include:
First Place, Paint the Music Plein Air Invitational 2017
Best of Show and 3rd Place Award, Ventura Plein Air Invitational 2016
Best of Show, Frank Bette Plein Air Invitational 2016
First Place in the Oil/Acrylic Category at the WVAG Member Show

On the Town with Jason Downs

| Entertainment | September 12, 2019

Greetings fellow Santa Claritans, and welcome to a column that’s all about having fun around town! We’re fortunate enough to live in one of the great entertainment meccas of the world. Join me as we celebrate all the area has to offer!

Here’s what I got up to this week: The 10 by 10 Variety Show at The MAIN (part of Thursdays@Newhall), and the bombastic, fantastic Andrews Brothers at the Canyon Theatre Guild.

Yes, it was all about Main Street Newhall this week, my friends, and let me tell you, Newhall has got it going on…no matter what day you choose to visit. The theatre was packed to the gills with ages ranging from ten-years-old (my son was the youngest in attendance) all the way up to folks in their eighties enjoying the eclectic and eccentric variety of entertainment being offered up on the intimate stage. This was a Thursday night – a school night, for goodness sake!

The endearingly droll comic, Chris Cope, kicked things off with some world-class comedy followed by storytellers Oscar Sagastume and Pablo Marz who have rocked stages from Los Angeles to Havana, Cuba with their heartfelt, hilarious, self reflective and revealing tales.

Each act was only 10-minutes long, with a total of 10 performances, and each had its own unique charm. The variety show has become a mainstay at The MAIN the first Thursday of each month and the reason is simple: It’s a real crowd pleaser. For instance, an Americana music group called GRIT transported us to a steam punk version of the Old West, while J.C. Ayres’ sweet and haunting voice was reminiscent of Joni Mitchell in her prime.

A gut wrenchingly beautiful short film about a new mother whose delivery doesn’t go as planned took me completely by surprise. I was suddenly crying in my seat, clutching my son a little closer. I highly recommend you take a look online — www.alohashortfilm.com. It’s called Aloha, and is written, directed and starring Brandi Nicole Payne. It is very touching and poignant.

My son’s favorite act was the weird and wonderful comic magician (yes, you read that correctly) Glenndalf, who graciously revealed the secret to one of his slight of hand maneuvers by repeating it in slow motion to the Chariot’s of Fire theme. Spoiler alert, the impressive prestidigitation involved snatching the card between his lips and spitting it across the room…which supposedly, when sped up, would be too fast for the audience to see. It was hilarious.

However, the most striking performance came from the Kalakeke Pacific Island Dance Company, seen here:


Suddenly, the curtain was pulled back, drums were pounding out an island beat, and we were surrounded by stunning men and women performing traditional Polynesian dances with hypnotizing, hip-swiveling perfection. It was spectacular.

Who knows what’s in store the first Thursday of NEXT month, but I can’t wait to find out. My son has already put it on the calendar!

Upon hearing all the buzz about the Canyon Theatre Guild’s recent hit “The Andrews Brothers,” my brother-in-law and I decided we just couldn’t miss it. Thankfully, we caught the final evening performance on Saturday night.

Only four cast members, three men and one woman, carried us through the entire show of thirty-three classic USO-era songs, impeccably sung (mostly in three part harmony) with plenty of gaffs and guffaws thrown in for good measure. The energy of the actors was boundless and infectious. The singers were as tight as they could be and had the perfect voices to pull off the biggest gag of them all…dressing up in drag and convincing an audience of weary WWII soldiers that they are in fact the famous Andrews SISTERS. And yes, they pull it off…with only a few minor wardrobe, choreographic, Adam’s apple and hair-styling hiccups. The result is uproarious laughs from a captivated audience.

The performance was simply delightful. I laughed the hardest when they brought up two unsuspecting “privates” from the audience and made them a blushing, bumbling part of the fun. The gentleman they plucked was a retired veteran whom they ended up honoring along with the rest of our service men and women present in the crowd.

Finally, after they’d taken their bows, the performers brought up everyone who’d been involved in putting the show together (because it was the final night of the run) and this is what really sealed the deal for me: Seeing all those proud faces up on the stage it was apparent the Canyon Theatre Guild is truly a fellowship, a family and a labor of love for those involved. There were wide smiles, flowing tears, armfuls of flowers and genuine gratitude all around.

One of the terrific young men playing the central “brother” (Colin Robert) turned out to be the director’s son (Musette Caing Hart), whose girlfriend turned out to be one of the vocal directors…and the whole thing was sponsored by the Hometown Station (KHTS) just a few doors down Main Street. See what I mean? Real community theater and the very definition of community. It was a beautiful thing to behold. And what a wonderful community to be a part of!


So, there it is for this week, friends. Always feel free to let me know what you like doing around town so I can check it out and write it up. (reachjasondowns@santaclaritagazette.com)

Until next time, bon voyage, break a leg, and bon appétit!

Wine of the Week

| Entertainment | September 5, 2019

by Beth Heiserman, Reyes Winery

This past Monday Reyes Winery started harvesting our Chardonnay. At 6 am we started to pick our grapes, it was a beautiful morning and not too hot. Three years ago we had harvested our Chardonnay in the beginning of August, whereas this year we started at the beginning of September. There is no actual set date when you pick the grapes. The season is generally August through October of when they could possibly be ready. We have now picked all of our grapes. It is one of the things that I enjoy every year that I get to participate in.

Once we finished harvesting the Chardonnay we moved onto the Muscat. We finished both fields in two days. We take a day off and then we continue with our Syrah, which will be harvested this week as well. Then we will wait for our Merlot and Cabernet seven young to be ready in order for us to pick. Hopefully that will be ready sometime next week. The birds have not been friendly and they have started to eat the grapes. Besides the birds not being my friends, the squirrels are more of an enemy than anything.

This coming weekend is our quarterly pick up party for our members. If you’re not a member you are more than welcome to come and see what we do here. Lunch is offered to everybody at $15 a person which includes a glass of wine. Tastings are $12 per person. Hope to see you this weekend!

On the Town with Jason Downs

| Entertainment | September 5, 2019

Greetings fellow Santa Claritans, and welcome to a column that’s all about having fun around town! We’re fortunate enough to live in one of the great entertainment meccas of the world. Join me as we celebrate all the area has to offer.

Here’s what I got up to this week: The LA Times “The Taste” at Paramount Studios.

My wife, the goddess and wonderful wizard that she is, procured VIP passes to the one and only, not-to-be-missed (if you’re into diabetic comas) foodie events of the year. It did not disappoint, folks.

First of all, I love being on a studio lot. Each one (whether it’s Universal, Warner, Disney, Sony/Columbia or Paramount) holds a feeling of history, nostalgia, romance and mystery…redolent with daring dreams and courageous creativity. I love it.

Each of us have a connection to moving pictures in our lives; whether they simply captured our imaginations as kids or we work in the biz, there is something special about walking amongst the stages where the likes of Hitchcock, Kubrick and Spielberg have created so many memorable moments. And there we were in the middle of it all, the entire New York City section blocked off solely to create more memorable moments for our taste buds!

A hundred of the yummiest restaurants in the greater Los Angeles area lined the make-believe streets with booths, just waiting to hand you a scrumptious morsel. A hundred mini saloons doled out cocktail after cocktail. It was an all you could eat, all you could drink bacchanalian buffet of excess in the very best of ways, friends.

My wife and I were joined by my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. The consensus was that the Bulleit cocktail won the day as far as aqua vitae, and there was a toss up between the Indian food from Mayura or the amazing ricotta and tomato infused eggplant made by famed chef Nancy Silverton at Osteria Mozza for best dish. Truth be told, I didn’t put a single thing in my mouth that wasn’t scrumdiddleyumptious.

There was music all around us causing folks to bust into spontaneous salsa moves, especially after eating some delectable queso. There were also live demonstrations from well-known chefs around town. They would prepare a recipe and take questions from the audience. Pure heaven for any culinary enthusiast (like my wife, for one). She was giddy all evening, which was easily the best part; aside from perhaps the insanely good pizza from Triple Beam. (Yes, I had to go back for seconds and thirds.)

Anyhow, we returned home fully stuffed and eager for next year. Yet another reason to love where we live, what we get to eat, the places we get to eat them and the people we get to eat them with!

So, there it is for this week, friends. Always feel free to let me know what you like doing around town so I can check it out and write it up. (reachjasondowns@santaclaritagazette.com)

Until next time, bon voyage, break a leg, and bon appétit!

Castaway with Thursdays@Newhall in September

| Entertainment | September 5, 2019

School may be back in session, but the fun doesn’t stop for Thursdays@Newhall in September. Featured events in Old Town Newhall this month include a variety show, salsa dancing lessons, a “Pirates of Santa Clarita” SENSES Block party and more – all for free! Thursdays@Newhall is an ongoing opportunity for residents of Santa Clarita to attend shows, concerts and special events on Thursday nights from March through October.

Ten performers will take to the stage on Thursday, September 5, at The MAIN (24266 Main Street) for 10 minutes each and dazzle the audience with music, comedy, storytelling and more at the monthly 10 by 10 Variety Show, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Performers in September include magic from Glenndalf; storytelling with Oscar Sagastume and Pablo Marz; music with Janine Cooper Ayres and Jim Jeffrey; comedy from Chris Cope, Samantha Hale and Julia Pels; dance by Kalakeke Pacific Island Dance Company; and a screening of the short film “ALOHA.”

Join D’Wilfri Dance Art and Entertainment for JAM Sessions at the Newhall Community Center (22421 Market Street) on September 12, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. to learn to Salsa. Attendees will engage in an exciting exploration of this fun, social dance with local dance instructor Ingrid Blanco, and then put their moves to the test while enjoying live music. JAM Sessions are hosted in conjunction with the Ford Theatre Foundation, bringing dance and original live performances to Old Town Newhall.

Explore 20,000 leagues under the sea but be sure not to walk the plank at the Pirates of Santa Clarita SENSES Block Party on September 19, starting at 7:00 p.m. Celebrate National Speak Like a Pirate Day in true Davy Jones style and follow your treasure map down Main Street for the grandest party on the high seas. Leave the landlubbers at home and sail in early for dinner at the event or from restaurants in Newhall. Eighth & Rail will host the on-street bar at this month’s SENSES.

Also on September 19, The MAIN will host an artist reception for its Second Annual Photo Competition by the Community Hiking Club. In the last few years, California has been hit with several destructive wildfires, including the Sand, Station, Woolsey, Thomas and Camp Fires. Most people know fire by the destruction left in its wake. But fire can have a different side as well. In the photo exhibition, you will see the starkness of the devastation, the beauty of the recovery and a few of the magnificent fire followers. Guests attending the free reception will enjoy light refreshments and have an opportunity to meet the photographers from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

The Note by Note music night on September 26, wraps up the month’s schedule and will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at The MAIN. Note by Note is a free night of music that delights audiences with a variety of genres. Bands, duos and soloists will perform a wide range of styles, including rock, folk, Celtic, Americana, blues, jazz, country, experimental, western and more. Featured performers in September include The Los Angeles Fifes and Drums, Heather Lockie, Melonie Carroll Dolci and Lilia Bogoeva. Artists interested in performing at Note by Note can learn more at ThursdaysAtNewhall.com/NotebyNote.

Wine of the Week

| Entertainment | August 29, 2019

by Beth Heiserman, Reyes Winery

A few weeks ago, my doctor put me on a special diet for 30 days. I’m prohibited to eat certain fruits and vegetables, such as plums, apples, cauliflower, onions and several other things that I generally do eat. I was also asked to remove wheat, lentils and kale. I will say when you must omit something from your diet it’s harder than you think it is.

So, my meals lately have been a little different than I am used to. For instance, one dinner this week was ground chicken sautéed with butternut squash, peas and corn in a chipotle tomato sauce. I can eat rice and mashed potatoes so either one of the two would be a great accompaniment to this dish. This ended up being a shepherd’s pie with a bit of spice. Instead of traditional mashed potatoes, I had sweet potatoes and instead of parmesan cheese, I sprinkled cotija on top. The doctor did tell me I can have oranges and other citrus along with grapes, which includes wine. And since wine was included in the list of things I can eat and drink, I am good.

I paired this dinner with our 2016 Rosé of Merlot. It’s fruity and pairs well with something a bit spicy. Three years ago, when we were harvesting our Merlot, we brought the grapes in four hours after we harvested. In that time, it created a very dark rich color that I didn’t quite want for this rosé. Typically, other rosés are much lighter than ours.

That same year, we brought grapes in from Lake Los Angeles which included the Viognier, the other white wine. I blended a little bit of the Viognier with the Merlot and thus we have our 2016 Rosé of Merlot. For that year, the remainder of the Viognier went into our Rosa’s Choice Rosé.

Last Friday, I drove out to Lake Los Angeles to test sugar on this year’s Viognier. It was so sweet and delicious. It was harvested this past Thursday and I am so excited to have another vintage. In September, our tasting menu will include our 2013 Viognier, which is almost sold out. It has won a gold medal and received 91 points from the 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition, a silver medal and 88 points from the 2016 Toast of the Coast, plus a bronze from the 2016 Los Angeles International Wine Competition.

This wine has intriguing aromas of white peach and a touch of honeysuckle. On the palate you get delicious notes of white peach and lychee with this refreshing lingering long finish. The crisp fruitiness and acidity in this wine make it delightful to pair with many foods. There are eight cases left. Then, I will be able to release our 2017 that we bottled this past January. I can’t wait to share this fabulous wine with you soon.

The Rolling Stones at the Rose Bowl

| Entertainment | August 29, 2019

by Harry Parmenter
“Anyone here from San-ta Mon-ee-kah?” Mick Jagger stated onstage at the Rose Bowl, flaunting his knowledge of local geography between songs. Sadly, while polling audience members from Glendale, Pasadena, “the Valley” and “The OC” he failed to name check “San-ta Clar-ee-tah!” That was about the only thing missing from his repertoire last week in front of over 50,000 people at the Rose Bowl.

The Rolling Stones hit Los Angeles on the last leg of their American “No Filter” tour in top gear. If you’ve ever heard Jagger interviewed he often mentions the need to “deliver” regardless of artist age or accomplishment. His band continues to do just that; as they have since they first played here a staggering 55 years ago.

Mick and his partner in crime, Keith Richards, met as teens united by a passion for the blues played by artists like Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter and Muddy Waters; and, like their heroes, they are still playing the blues well into the twilight of their lives.

Knocking out the hits for a good two hours, the Stones ignored Father Time with a powerful, joyous performance. Opening with their classic 60s anthem “Street Fighting Man,” they cruised through the first half of the set with gems like “She’s a Rainbow,” “Paint it Black” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” (introduced by a French horn solo, no less). The four horsemen, Jagger, Richards, Ronnie Wood and implacable drummer Charlie Watts, strolled out to a center stage riser in the midfield to play sparkling acoustic versions of “Sweet Virginia” and “Dead Flowers” before returning to the main stage and ramping things up with “Sympathy for the Devil.”

From there it was an accelerating sprint to the finish line with a long, intense burn through “Midnight Rambler,” Jagger’s harmonica prowess on full display through the sinister darkness of that signature show stopper. “Miss You,” “Brown Sugar” and a peak finish of “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” preceded a blazing encore of “Gimme Shelter” and the inevitable, eternally invigorating “Satisfaction.”

The crowd roared their approval throughout, a wide span of ages dominated by baby boomers adorned with band apparel of all kinds. I was fortunate enough to be fairly close to the stage and, despite having seen the band before, came away more impressed than ever, especially with Mick Jagger. The man is 76, just had a stent put in his heart, and he doesn’t stop moving the entire show, singing, dancing, playing guitar and harp; he is a force of nature, the ultimate rock star, a performer unlike anyone I’ve ever seen grace a stage. He delivers, and then some.

Even as they approach 80(!) the Rolling Stones continue to fill stadiums around the globe night after night. Nomads of the fading rock ‘n’ roll scene, the likes of them will never be seen again.

On The Town with Jason Downs

| Community, Entertainment | August 29, 2019

Greetings fellow Santa Claritans, and welcome to a column that’s all about having fun around town! We’re fortunate enough to live in one of the great entertainment meccas of the world — join me as we celebrate all the area has to offer!

Here’s what I got up to this week: Sunday Night Jazz with a local legend, and the best steak I’ve had in a long while at Valencia’s hottest new entertainment venue.

Looking for an adventure to cure those Sunday night blues? My wife and I hit the jackpot, friends — jazz at the Black ‘N Blue.

The Al Pascua Project, a top-notch band of musical brothers who know their way around a jazz tune, had the audience wrapped around their fingers at the stylish Black ‘N Blue lounge at the Valencia Town Center on Sunday night.

Left to right: James Graham (drums), Terry Collier (band manager), Al Pascua (keys/vocals), Lance Rickman (sax/flute), and David Cook (bass)

As soon as we walked into the restaurant our senses were aroused by the smooth sounds of Al Pascua, the inviting lighting, the laid back vibe, the smell of lobster, and last but not least, the staggering number of beautiful people filling up the place. That’s right, folks, it was as though all the beautiful people of Santa Clarita had descended upon the Black ‘N Blue just waiting for us to discover them…from the waitresses to the patrons it was a veritable feast for the eyes (and we’ll get to the actual feast in a moment).

Al Pascua and his band mates were beautiful (he hails from Hawaii, so no wonder); Al’s manager, Terry Collier, who welcomed us into the fray with open arms was gorgeous; the owner of Black ‘N Blue, Lee Kan, was ruggedly handsome; the wait staff was a runway of models; and of course, my wife was the crown jewel looking as stunning as ever in her long, flowing, low cut dress. I was surrounded by beauty! The bar was magnificent. The booths were inviting. The band was killing it. And then the food arrived…

First, let me just say, when we saw the relatively low prices on the menu, especially for the filet mignon we ordered, we were expecting a small piece of USDA steak. We were extremely and oh-so-pleasantly surprised when a choice cut of Angus, still crackling on a cast iron hot plate, was delivered to our table.

Next, we sliced into the filet and saw that it was the perrrrrfect medium rare…and still sizzling from the piping hot plate.

Then, we each took a bite.

THEN, we died and went to heaven.

You’re getting serious value for your buck here, people. The wine (we tried a Sauvignon Blanc) was outstanding. The baked potato was infused with a yummy mixture of butter, herbs and cheese which was also outstanding.

Then, we ordered more wine (because the alcohol was also less expensive than most places) and started to feel like dancing! But that would have to wait because the band was finishing their first set by now. Mixed among the applause and the cheers was a collective disappointment that they needed to take a break at all. “Keep playing, Al,” a group from across the room pleaded.

By special request, Mr. Al Pascua himself joined us at our booth for a moment and we got to chat music and compare stories. (I’ve had my run-in with the music industry as well, but we can unpack all that implies at a later date.) My wife remarked that she’d never seen a jazz group engage so well with their audience before (we’ve seen a lot of jazz back in New York), because usually they seem to be so involved with the art of jazz or the personal pleasure of bonding with the other musicians that little attention is paid to drawing in the crowd.

Mr. Pascua credited this unique trait to the years he’s spent educating folks about the joys of jazz…caressing and coaxing his audience into an appreciation by incorporating broader music into his set and tying it all back to jazz. This practice of “audience education’” began back in Hawaii (before moving to LA to work for Disney) where Mr. Pascua played for years with a hit band called Music Magic.

Purchase his current album by searching The Al Pascua Project on any of your favorite platforms. Take a moment, it is well worth it. Mr. Pascua is focusing on his music completely nowadays and we are the lucky benefactors. His set consists of classics and originals, both of which draw you in and onto the dance floor. Not just because the band is so tight and are such pros, but because they invite you to be a part of the experience with infectious smiles and obvious love for the music.

You’re probably thinking I’m a paid advertiser at this point, but my wife and I walked away from the evening thinking we would definitely be coming back on a regular basis. The Black ‘N Blue is the hang out, folks. Owner and operator, Lee Kan, knows what he’s doing and I for one (and my wife for another) couldn’t be happier he’s doing it here in Santa Clarita! This type of venue is just what we’ve been looking for…especially on those nights you just want to dance. Wednesday through Saturday they have a DJ playing all the greats from the 70s to the present with the many screens peppered throughout the room showing the corresponding music video.

Prefer to play Jenga while sipping a cocktail and listening to some great jazz on a Sunday eve before the busy week begins? Check out The Al Pascua Project every other week starting September 15th.

To cap off a perfect evening, when we stepped onto the sidewalk of Town Center an adorable old-fashioned trolley pulled up alongside us, beckoning us to climb aboard. We did, and it carried us off to our car.

In the words of Plato, “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, and life to everything.” Hear, hear! (Pretty insightful guy, I’m told.)

So, there it is for this week, friends. Always feel free to let me know what you like doing around town so I can check it out and write it up. (reachjasondowns@santaclaritagazette.com)

Until next time, bon voyage, break a leg, and bon appétit!

Wine of the Week

| Entertainment | August 22, 2019

by Beth Heiserman, Reyes Winery

This past weekend, I opened a 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon to see how it is developing. 2014 was a tough year for our grapes because we didn’t have a lot of water, which made the wine a bit astringent. If you follow me, you are aware that we have a Cabernet Vertical coming next week. I had someone ask me what type of petite bites I serve. Well, depending upon the wine and what is in season, the answer is from cheese to dessert and anything in between.

Last year, the 2014 was paired with a dark chocolate covered cherry. Then the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, another favorite of mine, was complemented with a chocolate almond cupcake with blackberry creamed honey drizzle and a cinnamon cream cheese frosting with a blackberry chocolate decoration. That was definitely a hit!

When pairing the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon or any other wine, I first taste the wine and see what notes there are. This dark and rich estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon has bold tannins with aromas of black cherry, plum and freshly cracked black peppercorn. On the palate this wine has intense flavors of currants and pomegranates followed by a woody spice. I would enjoy this with spaghetti Bolognese, Vella dry jack cheese or chocolate cherry cheesecake. Hmmm…what will I present, you will have to come join me and see.

Come celebrate International Cabernet Day at Reyes Winery. We will be having a Vertical Tasting on Saturday August 31st at 12pm. The cost is $30 per person. Tickets for all events can be bought at: https://squareup.com/store/reyes-winery/.

Also, just a reminder that August 29th is International Cabernet Day! Social media has a hashtag for it, #CabernetDay. Join the movement and drink lots of Reyes Winery Cabernet. Take a photo of you, your wine and your wine glass — #Cabernet and #ReyesWinery.

“The Andrews Brothers” Hits the Stage at the Canyon Theatre Guild

| Entertainment | August 22, 2019

By Ashley Matkin
Contributor

From Roger Bean, the author of the smash hit “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” The Canyon Theatre Guild presents “The Andrews Brothers,” a fun-filled musical adventure that is sure to make you smile.

A USO show is threatened with cancellation when a famous trio of singing sisters fails to show, and it’s up to three persevering stagehands, Colin Robert (“Les Miserables,” Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”), John Joseph (“The Wizard of Oz”) and Brandon McCravy (“Guys and Dolls,” “Addams Family”) to fix it.

The show must go on; and it does with the help of a popular pinup girl and background singer, Laine Matkin (“Zombie Prom,” “The Little Mermaid”).

Under the direction of Musette Caing Hart, who was also the co-choreographer, the show is described as a “well-oiled machine, being performance-ready a week BEFORE the dreaded tech rehearsals even started.”

Co-vocal Director Robert William said, “25+ songs is intimidating to approach, we wanted to get the 40’s style and harmonies perfect and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome.” Co-vocal Director Skylar Cutchall added, “We all worked so hard in nailing the feel of the 40s music. It’s been a challenge, but the actors have created beautiful work.”

Co-choreographer Annette Sintia Duran said, “These kids are dancers and can move. They were up for any challenge I threw at them.”

Audience member Rita Hanan wrote, “This was probably the best show I’ve seen in years. The singing, dancing and humor were totally amazing and I can’t wait to see it again. I highly recommend this play and I promise you won’t be disappointed!”

“The Andrews Brothers” is filled with songs made famous by the Andrews Sisters, including “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Rum & Coca-Cola” and “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree”.

Don’t miss this show about mistaken identities and madcap adventures – along with the music of an entire generation that highlights this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.

Playing Saturdays and Sundays, through September 7, at the Canyon Theatre Guild located at 24242 Main Street in Newhall.

For tickets, call the CTG box office at 661-799-2702 or visit www.canyontheatre.org.

Take a Trip Down the Rabbit Hole with Bras for a Cause on September 7th

| Community, Entertainment | August 16, 2019

Soroptimist International of Valencia is pleased to invite you to attend our 16th Annual Bras for a Cause event. Since its beginning, this signature event has raised over $350,000 for Circle of Hope and Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center. This year’s event will be held September 7th, from 6pm to 10pm at the Hyatt Regency Valencia, and the theme will be “Alice in Wonderland.”

However, this won’t be your childhood Alice. The ambience will have more of an enigmatic and jaunty feel. The event includes dinner, raffles and a live-modeled auction of artistically-styled bras with themed baskets. Nearly every model participating this year has had personal experience with breast cancer. The club’s goal is to empower women who have been through breast cancer treatment and to celebrate their journey.

Feel free to dress to the occasion, join in the celebration and show support for these brave women. Sponsorship and donation opportunities are available, and tickets are on sale now. Last year’s event had a sold out crowd of almost 300, and is on track to sell out again. You do not want to miss this event!
