Directed by Billy Wilder

Screen legends Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich and Charles Laughton star in this brilliant courtroom drama that left audiences reeling from its surprise twists and shocking climax.

However, he is intrigued by the case of Leonard Vole (Tyrone Power), a likable fellow who's accused of murdering a wealthy widow. The case is turned on its head when Vole's loving wife (Marlene Dietrich) announces that they are not really married and agrees to be a witness for the prosecution. Adapted from an Agatha Christie play and directed with his usual finesse by Billy Wilder. 116 minutes

Craig Corona (Locals Wednesday) @ Silo's | Born and raised on Long Island during a period when most kids were listening to glamour rock it's hard to believe that Craig could have been pushed in the direction to perform Bluegrass and Country music. He taught himself to play on his father's cheap, old, nylon string classical (which he still has). It was when he was forced to join the school choir by his best friend that he was set on the course to performing. Campfire type sing alongs taught him a lot of the old folk tunes that he still holds among his influences. Playing these songs also taught him the value of sharing music.

Napa's Emerging Artist Showcase hosted by Shelby Lanterman, Featuring: Matt Jaffe, Alec Lee, Zak Fennie, Kristen Van Dyke, Caitlin Kara, Shelby Lanterman @ City Winery Napa | Join us for an evening with local emerging singers and songwriters! Grand finale of the series: July 1st!

Join us for a night of original music, drinks, and dining with 6 of Napa's emerging artists:

Shelby Lanterman is a singer/songwriter from Napa, Ca. Early on in her childhood, she was exposed to rock n roll music by her father and was quickly inspired to start playing music herself. At the age of 12 she picked up the guitar and signed up for the Garage Band 101 program at Napa School of Music, which helped her segue into playing her own shows. She has played at many festivals, clubs, theaters and restaurants in California and beyond including the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, Silo's, Bottle Rock, Napa Porchfest, Uptown Theatre, NV Opera House, San Francisco Zoo and many more. She has also made appearances on KVON 99.3 The Vine and has music available on iTunes, Amazon, Google and other online services. Most recently, Shelby put together a series of songwriters in the round shows at City Winery Napa to promote bay area music. Shelby started writing music at the age of 16 and has put together a wonderfully diverse set list of covers and original songs. Reminiscent of classic rock bands such as Led Zeppelin and Heart, Shelby's music will make you want to clap your hands and stomp your feet. Her high energy shows will remind you why you fell in love with rock and roll in the first place.

Kristen Van Dyke is a folk influenced artist from the Napa Valley. She tells her story through song, and loves what she does!

Caitlin Kara is an American songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. She plays piano, guitar, papoose, banjo, dobro, weissenborn, lap steel, mandolin, pump organ and accordion.

A classically trainined musician, Caitlin studied piano and violin from the age of five. She began composing as a young child, and first wrote music and lyrics at the age of ten, writing for Sony Wonder Children's Films by the age of fourteen.

Caitlin's original music draws from a diverse collection of genres and musical influences, including her classical upbringing and 25 years formal instruction, and an early training in roots, folk, and bluegrass.

Caitlin's love of punk, ska, and rock music, combined with her interest in alternative-ambient-electronica and classic hip-hop inspires her style and approach to music and lyrics.

Caitlin is currently pursuing writing music and lyrics for film and television.

Alec lee is an 18 year old singer/songwriter from Napa, California. This artistblends his acoustic roots with hip-hop, pop and rap. His debut EP "M" will be hitting stores this summer.

MATT JAFFE is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from the San Francisco Bay Area. With influences ranging from The Clash, Elvis Costello, and Talking Heads to Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Fela Kuti, Matt performs regularly throughout the Bay Area, SoCal and NYC.

Matt was ‘discovered’ playing solo at an open mic by ex-Talking HeadJERRY HARRISON, who has helped mentor and create Matt’s unique sound. In bringing the ambitions of the studio to rambunctious life onstage, Matt sought out the youthful rhythm section of ALEX COLTHARP and SAMMIE FISCHER and guitarist ALEX NEWELL to round out the Distractions. Together with acclaimed producerMATTHEW KING KAUFMAN (Jonathan Richman, Greg Kihn, The Rubinoos) and A&R vet MICHAEL CAPLAN they have completed Matt’s first album of original music this summer.

The band's growing footprint has been propelled by first place accolades at the 2013 Marin County Battle of the Bands and the 2013 and 2014 Mill Valley Memorial Day Parades. The single, 'I Wanna Be Cruel' was named a finalist in the 2013 UnSigned Only Songwriting Competition.'Armistice Day' was recently named the top song in the 2014 International Songwriting Competition Social Cause category and a finalist in the Teen section. And following a multi-step process including on-line voting and 2 live performances, the band was crowned champions of the San Francisco Hard Rock Cafe Battle of the Bands 2014.

Zak Fennie bleeds rock and roll. From the day he was born to the moment he picked up his first guitar, he was enveloped in it. Hailing from a musical family, Zak found his outlet in song-writing as a young adult, combining elements of grunge, punk, indie, emo and folk along with the trials and tribulations of growing up into a powerful and emotive sound. Zak Fennie performs as both a solo act, and as the front-man and primary song-writer for the alternative/hard rock band We Are Invisible Monsters.

Anitra Carr @ Silo's | My first real memory of singing is in church in the first grade. Sister Eileen was playing the guitar. I remember clearly that I was belting out the hymns and giving it all I had. I have always loved to sing, and sing my heart out. It was always all or nothing. The older kids in the neighborhood would make me sing for them before I could go home from the park. It was tough in the Bronx. You, however, will not find it hard to enjoy Anitra!

Active Child with Low Roar @ City Winery Napa | Picture a house constructed of glass, tucked away on a hillside, up a steep winding driveway. It’s only several miles from downtown LA, but far removed from the smog and celebrity. From this mountain repose, you can see the freeway buzzing in the distance. You’re aware of the sounds of the city clucking. But mostly, you feel the golden light permeating through the walls and hear the empyrean voices echoing within. This is Rapor.

Rapor is both the name of Active Child’s new EP and the appellation for the residence in which the music was created (“Ra” means sun. “Por” means house.) It’s where singer and multi-instrumentalist Pat Grossi found sanctuary, refuge, and inspiration in the wake of nearly two years of touring his wildly successful Vagrant Records debut, 2011’s You Are All That I See.

“Sometimes I’d spend a week alone at the house writing without leaving or having visitors. It was during those periods that I realized how important this space was to me personally and creatively,” says Grossi, whose celestial falsetto was initially cultivated in the Philadelphia Boys Choir. “It gave me a platform to sit on and reflect, and it surrounded me with a beauty that’s a key inspiration for my music.”

If angelic is an overused but accurate cliché used to describe Active Child’s music, Rapor achieves equilibrium due to the gravity of real-life experiences. While traveling across the globe, Grossi was overwhelmed by the outpouring of sentiment from fans. These interactions allowed him re-focus on the cathartic power of music. The songs on Rapor are more than just beautiful cathedrals of sound. They contain both the cuts and the confessions only achieved through intense solitude and introspection.

“I had a few rare moments with people who approached me, threw their arms around me and sobbed, like they had just been reunited with their long lost brother,” Grossi says. “Sometimes it was overwhelming, but other times I heard their story of what brought them to my music. It changed me and how I saw song writing; it showed me how powerful a song can be and it made me want to go home, and focus on writing music that could heal.”

The record’s gestation included days spent writing instrumentals, building the spine for the melodies and lyrics. Each night, Grossi returned to his creations and sang over it—the mood of the track often acting as a mouthpiece for his subconscious. It’s both meticulously sculpted and stream of consciousness, allowing for ideas, songs, and stories to glide through.

One particularly stunning example is “Silhouette,” Grossi’s collaboration with Ellie Goulding. The pair channel a young Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel with a radiant fervor only found in those who share a legitimate musical connection. “Subtle” finds Grossi in seraphic union with Rihanna collaborator, Mikky Ekko. Stereogum immediately hailed it as “wonderful.” Pitchfork raved about its intense physicality.

The EP foregrounds a national winter tour, leading up to a full-length album tentatively due out next spring. Grossi has been almost constantly recording in Rapor, creating rhapsodies amidst the glass and sun.

“These are my stories, my heartache, my vows, but I want them more than ever to be those of the listeners too,” Grossi says. “I want them to share in my excitement and my pain, and make it their own.”

Jeff Austin Band featuring Danny Barnes, Ross Martin and Eric Thorin @ City Winery Napa | Mandolinist Jeff Austin is unstoppable. He is celebrated for his fleet fingers and penchant for improvisation on stage, but those qualities also speak volumes about how he chooses to live. Austin has cultivated his natural musical abilities and allowed himself to be driven by his boldest instincts. In this way, he has been able to build positive, exciting momentum around his life’s greatest passion.

Austin’s enthusiasm for the vast, vibrant world of music was rooted in him as early as he can remember: “I was always raised very musically. My mom always had music playing; she always sang.” It’s no surprise then that Austin himself grew up singing too. From beginning to end of his years in grade school just outside of Chicago, he sang in classes, choirs, and musicals, allowing his musical influences to lead him where they may. “I started listening to Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings,” Austin says. “And then the Beatles, that turned into Bob Dylan, and then the Grateful Dead and Phish.”

“This is it. This is the band. We’re here and we’re focused,” he says with glee. He’s referring to his handpicked ensemble, featuring long-time collaborator Danny Barnes on banjo and guitar, guitarist Ross Martin, bass player Eric Thorin, and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars on percussion.

The Simple Truth, the group’s 2015 debut solo album and Austin’s first recording for Yep Roc records, is no simple affair. His legions of fans have long known of Austin’s eclectic musical influences. Here, instead of familiar jam band motifs, listeners will find hints of power pop, country ballads, bluegrass and rock. Assisting the band is an array of acclaimed guests including Todd Snider, Jenn Hartswick, Brendan Bayliss of Umphrey’s McGee and Sarah Siskind.

“I love writing a three-minute song with a hook that would grab a five-hundred-pound marlin as much as I like writing something that goes, ‘okay, after the bridge, it’s going to open up and just go wide.’”

Indeed, “wide” is what Jeff Austin is all about. He wants new and different, complex and interesting. He wants everything the music world has to offer, and he’s willing to work hard to get it.

It’s hard not to notice Austin’s enthusiasm for the new project. “As the primary writer and singer, my name may be attached to the thing, but this is everybody’s band,” he says. “To see the work these guys are doing on a nightly basis, embedding themselves and the dedication to work, it’s ridiculous. It’s a cool thing to be a part of.”

Johnny Smith @ Summer Sunday Sessions at Bene Gusto - Browns Valley | An intimate afternoon with Napa's favorite son! Artist Johnny Smith was born in Long Beach California in 1962. He began his musical life at a very young age. Born into a musical family, Johnny’s mother nurtured his vocal talents while his uncle and aunt, well known music icons Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett, provided musical mentoring and advice. But it was a televised performance of Elvis playing “Hound Dog” that truly inspired the 9 year old Smith to pick up the guitar and pursue a life of performance and by the age of 10, he was regularly invited to perform on stage with local professional musicians.

Johnny eventually relocated to San Francisco and formed Alias Smith, a roots/rock influenced band which took first prize in a regional Battle of the Bands competition. Alias Smith’s debut CD by the same name garnered much praise, and helped the band to secure an 18 date tour throughout Sweden and Finland as well as stage performances alongside such reputable artists as The Beach Boys, Starship, Maria Muldaur, and Roger McGuinn to name a few.

Wishing to further his musical vision, Mr. Smith became a solo artist and released the album “Just a Man”. Johnny’s maturity as a musician is realized as his sultry, soulful voice weaves throughout songs reminiscent of sophisticated blues melded with upbeat rock tempos. The hit “Love Is like a Rock” became #1 on radio request lines, and the song “Fortune Teller” received honourable mention in the Napa Valley Music Festival Song Writers Competition.

Johnny has won best performer 3 of 3 times at the Northern California Songwriters Association competition, and is a regular on live television and radio broadcasts.

Through all of his successes, Smith has never lost “touch” with his roots and still performs on the original Martin D-35 that he’s been playing since age 12.

Johnny's Aunt Bonnie Bramlett co-wrote and performs , along with Johnny's cousin Bekka Bramlett, on "Never Even Thought About It", track number 5 on the 2009 album "Gentlemen X"

Bene Gustos is located in Napa at on Browns Valley Road next to Browns Valley Market. If you haven't been there, the entrance is somewhat hidden behind the front buildings. The music will take place outside on the creekside patio.
