The Mountain Winery has announced the line-up for their–extensive, action-packed, star-studded–summer concert series. Performances run from end of May through to early October, so fear not, you should have ample time to catch an outdoor show or two at their gorgeous Saratoga venue. We’re told tickets will go on sale April 28 (at 10am local).

Where to start?

Some of the best known musical acts this year include Jewel, Peter Frampton, Steely Dan, Chris Isaak, Lyle Lovett, and Colbie Caillat (watch her Stark Insider interview from Live in the Vineyard).

Those who love hair-spiked 80s throwback will appreciate several of the bands hitting Mountain Winery this summer such as The Go-Go’s, Patty Smyth, Cutting Crew, The Motels, Naked Eyes (with Peter Byrne), Bret Michaels, Foreigner, Heart, Chicago, Howard Jones, Huey Lewis and the News, and (of course!) Kool & The Gang.

PREVIEW: Chris Isaak Live

Diva Sarah Brightman will take a momentary reprieve from Las Vegas for what should be a much anticipated performance on August 7.

For laughs, there’s no shortage of opportunity. In particular mark your calendar for September 27. That’s when a mini-SNL reunion will take place featuring Dana Carvey, Dennis Miller, and Kevin Nealon.

We’ve included the complete schedule below.

One quick tip: as in past years The Mountain Winery is offering up a package that includes a reserved sear, 3-course dinner, a glass of estate wine, and parking. It’s available for all shows. We highly recommend it. There’s nothing quite like enjoying a dinner on the elegant Chateau Deck on a balmy California night, hanging with friends, anticipating a great live event.
