Kenny G Concert + George Benson

We just celebrated our Anniversary this year with a trip to Ironestone Vineyards in Murphy's,  CA.  It is such a beautiful spot for a little wine and music.

This winery is tucked away in the old Gold Rush region of California.

The concert began with Kenny G arriving from the back of the crowd as he played his Sax.  By the way it is the same sax he played in high school.

After playing through the audience he struck a note and continued to play the note as he walked to the stage.  He held that note for at least 5 minutes.

He does hold the world record for the longest note played at 48 minutes and 45 seconds.  But it was still amazing to hear that long, long note played for this concert.

The night was perfect as the heat of the day melted away and a gentle breeze brought in cooler refreshing air as we listened to his beautiful notes drift across the audience and over the surrounding hills.

Got a really good picture at intermission while Kenny G was signing autographs.

It was pretty dark by the time George Benson came on stage.  Couldn't get a very good picture.

It was a fun night, perfect weather and a perfect setting.

Happy Travels!
