At 6:45 Jeff Beck took the stage. My husband was very happy about this and it was his fourth time seeing Jeff Beck live. For me this part was alright, I'm not all that into listening to just guitar riffs. Near the end of the set he did have someone that came out and sang a few songs but I didn't know any of them. Many people were rocking out to his whole set though.
At 8:15 ZZ Top took the stage and the whole crowd erupted. This was the part of the night that I was waiting for! At first the microphones didn't seem to be working very well for them but then it was sorted out and the show was amazing! And when their set was over they left but came back on stage with Jeff Beck in tow and played a few more songs for the crowd.
The crowd of people that were there ranged from old to young, people dressed in normal everyday clothes, others were dressed really nicely and some made you think of the flower power kids from the 60's.
The couple that sat just to the right of us were just lovely. Tacia (Tay-sha) and I had fun people watching before the show started and even a bit during the shows. And I just love the spelling of her name, I just know it's going to end up in one of my stories and I told her that too. There were two ladies that sat just to the left of us and the one was just funny after learning that Robert had already seen Jeff Beck three times before; I laughed when she told Robert, "You suck!"
It was our first time to ever be at the winery but the grounds, or what we saw of them, are just gorgeous. On our way in we passed a number of rows of grape vines that had little tiny grapes on them. A photo of the grapes is one of many that we took and below are just a few of the photos we managed to take with either our phones or the Samsung tablet that I had taken with us. One photo will look like it was just the lights with one to the right that is out of alignment with the others... that one on the right is actually the moon. :)
