Well-known saxophonist Eric Marienthal will join an elite group of Jazz players this Saturday, the 21st for the inaugural Jazz and Wine in the Gardens at Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, California. He will play with Max Bennett for the concert.
Marienthal is a native Californian who has played professionally with such music greats as Elton John, Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Dionne Warwick, Burt Bacharach, Aaron Neville, and others. Six of his songs have been listed in the top 10 of the Contemporary Jazz charts; two have made it to number one.
The Jazz and Wine in the Garden concert will benefit the San Diego Ronald McDonald House, a place for families to stay when their children are undergoing hospital treatments.
Grand Tradition staff has a personal connection with the Ronald McDonald House through volunteerism and personal use, and this was part of the reason that the family owned Grand Tradition Estate & Gardens decided to dedicate a portion of the proceeds from their first signature Jazz and Wine in the Gardens to the non-profit.
Located on the lush and tranquil grounds of Grand Tradition, the concert, which is co-produced by Timmy D. Productions and Apaulo Music Production, will feature world-renowned jazz musicians Jeff Lorber, Paul Brown, Brian Simpson, Michael Paulo, Spencer Day, Max Bennett, Lori Andrews, and now, Eric Marienthal.
Besides amazing music, event goers will enjoy regional wines and local foods with access to the enchanting grounds.
