Live Music in St. Louis – Hear this Week: April 9 – 15
Spring has sprung, and in addition to some other Bands of Note, it’s time to think about visiting some of our wineries (we have 100-plus within an hour’s drive!). So here is a special winery edition for your tasting enjoyment. Note that these are just a few, and all the wineries listed here have multiple live music on the weekend, so keep them in mind through to the Fall.
None of the wineries have a cover charge.
Live Music in St. Louis
Saturday, April 14:
- Montelle Winery features the Sean Holland Band. Catch them playing their mix of covers and a few originals. 1–5 pm.
- Cedar Lake Cellars are offering three great groups for their Spring Fling: the woman-lead rockers Trixie Delight; Real Trio (jazz/R&B); and Vote 4 Pedro (jazz/R&B). The fling starts at 1 pm.

Sunday, April 15:

- Over at Chandler Hill, the local classic rock cover band Volcanic Ash will be rocking this vineyard from 1–4 pm.
- Across the river at the Grafton Winery, Triple Play does their versions of your favorite classic rock tunes. 1–5 pm.
Monday, April 11 – Punk rockers The Queers come to the Fubar. They’ve been recording and touring since the 1990s, and this will no doubt be another great show. There are three other punk bands on the bill including The Timmys. Doors open at 7 pm, $14.
What the Locals Know: Every Thursday at the charming Yaquis on Cherokee, they make some room for the Bottom Up Blues Gang, one of our favorites. Fronted by Kari Liston and guitarist Jeremy Segel-Moss, their band is always good, but they are especially good in this quirky pizza place.
Music Note of Note: Missouri might not be the first place to come to mine when you think of wineries, but actually our German immigrant friends founded the state’s wine industry in the early 19th century. The wine corridor where they set up was called the Missouri “Rhineland.” Later our Italian immigrant friends got involved, and in the mid 1880s, more wine was produced here than any other state. No doubt there was folk music being played on the weekend afternoons during this period, too ….
