Savor Vidalia, A Celebration of Wine, Food & Jazz featuring Joe Gransden and his Big Band on October 21st

Posted By admin / September, 27, 2017 / 0 comments



Tickets are now available for Savor Vidalia at the Vidalia Onion Museum and online through Facebook and at


The Vidalia Outdoor Concert Series 2017 will conclude with the 2nd Annual “Savor Vidalia”  A Celebration of Wine, Food & Jazz featuring the return of  Joe Gransden and his 16 Piece Big Band. Gransden and his band blew away the attendee’s during last year event.  Originally formed in 2009 Joe and the guys have continued to build momentum and are performing numerous shows around the country. They have quickly become one of the busiest groups on the jazz scene. The band’s new release entitled “It’s A Beautiful Thing” has sold incredibly well and is getting radio air play all over the world! The cd was recorded live at Cafe 290 in Atlanta Georgia where the band holds a steady gig twice every single month. “The Big Band truly has its own sound and really swings!” says Gransden. “I attribute that to the arrangements that were all written by jazz trombone great Wes Funderburk!  It’s such a pleasure to front a band of top musicians that can interpret Wes’s arrangements perfectly!  These guys are the best!”  Their legion of fans continues to grow as well. Opening the concert is the 3 Rivers Jazz Ensemble, of the larger, 3 Rivers Symphony Winds group based in Glennville and comprised of talented musicians from the region.

“Savor Vidalia” is October 21st at the Stage at City Park and will also feature wine vendors from all over the state and regional food vendors. Tickets are $15 and include the wine tasting, food samples, and an event wine glass. Additional wine, beer and food will be available for purchase. Tables for 8 are $160 and include 8 tickets.  Table purchasers are encouraged to decorate their table for the event. Tickets are available at the Vidalia Onion Museum, Downtown Vidalia Association Main Street Office at City Hall and online at  Learn more about this event at the Visitors and Convention Bureau’s webpage at  and on Facebook at Visit Vidalia GA or call 912-538-8687.
