WineFest Music Videos

And you thought Wine & Food
were the only things at Festivals!

Lots of great musical acts are at wine festivals ...
Central Coast band One Time Spaceman entertained with their Rock, Blues, and Americana style music at the 31st Annual Paso Robles Wine Festival, 2013.
The Shoemaker Brothers provided some great music and played a wide range of material at the  6th Annual Ventura County Wine Trail Celebration, 2013.

Maybe some Taste N Trip blog readers missed the music videos I recorded at wine festivals over the last few years.  So I thought I'd re-post a few that I shot with my video camera in my right hand and a wine glass in my left hand while walking backwards. It takes a certain wine-cam coordination to do this right, and although these aren't professional quality videos I never spilled any wine!
