Entertainment

The ZinFest Wine Festival wouldn’t be a celebration of Lodi’s heritage grape without a little entertainment to set the stage. Whether you’re strolling amongst the wineries, lounging at our Piano Bar, or relaxing along the Mokelumne River, live musical entertainment will be just around the corner.

Strolling Musicians:

12:00pm – 4:00pm
Snap Jackson & the Knock on Wood Players
are an acoustic trio hailing from Stockton, California. These three gentlemen blend Americana, Bluegrass, Soul, & Old Time music to create a unique, fresh, & energetic sound. Their musical stylings will be heard throughout the event as the stroll among the ZinFest crowd.

 


ZinFest Piano Bar:

12:30pm – 5:00pm
Back by popular demand! Stop by, make requests, and sing-a-long as pianist Joe Spraker rocks out on his piano at the always popular ZinFest Piano Bar.

 

ZinFest Main Entertainment Stage:

 

12:30pm – 1:30pm
The Paper Dolls
– The Paper Dolls are San Francisco’s poster girls of all things raggedy glam! With two silken voices and two twinkling ukuleles these cherub faced chanteuses spin their magic on a repertoire of tunes that surely came out of a surrealist diner’s jukebox. From their ethereal cooing of Paper Moon to a rock-out tip of the ol’ tinsel top hat to daddy Elton John, to their hand-penned originals, they collage the unlikely with the unbelievable. Uni and Em Doll sing their hearts out like valentines to the world. These genre-bending beauties leave toes tapping and skin tingling wherever they appear — burlesque ballyhoos and birthday parties, cabarets and cafes alike. They’ll be gracing the ZinFest Entertainment stage, creating an other worldly delight of sight and sound.

 

 

2:00pm – 4:30pmKorduroy Image
Korduroy – In the Spring of 2013, a group of friends and colleagues came together to share their love of music. What started as jam sessions in each other’s homes turned into a collaborative effort now known as Korduroy. Korduroy is a progressive-soul act but refuses to fit into that simply-titled box. With 15 rotating members, including two trumpeters, two guitarists and two percussionists, it’s easy to see how the group defies one single genre and produces their own “groove music.” Founding member Isaac Lopez, alto saxophone player and lead vocalist, had a vision to harness not only his own talents and influences, but to truly create a melting pot of sounds with his gifted ensemble. Each member of Korduroy shares a love of music from Latin to Jazz, to Pop to Punk, to Rock and Hip-Hop. As you can see, with so many “chefs” in the “kitchen,” it would be impossible to strictly stay on one path. Once you hear it, you’ll get it. And we guarantee that you’ll love it!
