Influx to Kick Off Summer Jazz 777


Palisade, Colorado – Wine Country Inn is moving Jazz 777 outdoors under the stars, weather permitting, for the summer when it features Influx Jazz Quartet in the Courtyard Pavilion on Saturday, May 30 from 7 to 10 pm.

Cover charge will be $7.70 per person or $15 a couple, but reservations are not required.

Chef Dave Kassera will initiate the Inn’s seasonal Courtyard food service from 5 to 8 pm with grilled hamburgers, brats and Chicago Style Hot Dogs and chips for $5. A simple beverage selection includes sodas ($2), beer ($4) and wine ($5 a glass). Chef Kassera says the grilled menu will be offered on weekend and Monday nights for hotel guests and visitors.

Guests who want to stay overnight can call for reservations to receive the Summer Jazz 777 rate starting at $99 for a Standard King Room for Two. With a reservation guests receive two tickets to the music performance. A room reservation is not required for patrons who want to enjoy the music and grab a bite of food.

"This weekend will launch our summer season," says General Manager Connie Luppes. "The pool is open for guests to enjoy, our grapevines are leafing out, and the landscaping is looking more colorful every day. I think everyone is ready to be outdoors after a long winter."

If the weather is inclement, she says the jazz event will simply move indoors, but the outdoor grilling service will be suspended.

Influx, a popular local band, will provide instrumental jazz for listening and dancing, Influx features Chris Krabacher and Tim Currey on guitars, Jason McGlynn on saxophone, and Duane Moore on the drums.

Luppes points out that guests can turn the Jazz 777 room special into a two-night weekend getaway by coming in on Friday and visiting wineries, art galleries and studios, shops, restaurants and other attractions before the big party.

The Inn is located at 777 Grande River Dr. Palisade (Exit 42 Off I-70). Phone numbers are 970-464-577 and 888-850-8330.
