Live Music in St. Louis – Hear This Week: September 23 – 29
Fall means pleasant afternoons at the wineries, and more groups playing on patios (and Busch Stadium’s Ballpark Village) … here are just a few Bands of Note:
Live Music in St. Louis

Saturday, September 28 – Busch Stadium’s Ballpark Village features music of the country flavor, and tonight catch one of country’s next superstars live: Matt Rogers. 7 pm, free.
Sunday, September 29 – Out west at the Montelle Winery, the Encore Trio entertains with their blend of popular hits over the decades. 1 pm, no cover.
What the Locals Know – There’s live music every Sunday at the beautiful Villa Antonio Winery just south of South County in Hillsboro from 1 to 4 p, and this Sunday it’s Matt and Brooke. This duo is also a couple, and they play everything from Johnny Cash to The Bee Gees. No cover.
Music Note of Note: Speaking of Busch Stadium … in addition to being a Hall of Fame baseball legend, Stan Musial (1920–2013) was a pretty good harmonica player, too. He even performed on the TV show Hee Haw and sold his own Musical-labeled harmonicas and instruction book.
