LeRoy Bell was one of the top ten finalists in the X Factor TV program, placing eighth in the competition.  His rhythm and blues technique and soulful voice electrified the public during his TV performances.

LeRoy’s talents were not only recognized by the judges on the X factor and people all across America, they have also been recognized by the one and only Elton John.  Elton John discovered and quickly became a fan of LeRoy's song writing - recording two of his songs.

Elton's recording of Bell's song "Mama Can't Buy Me Love," from the "Thom Bell Sessions," went to the top of the charts in the fall of 1979 - earning Elton a Grammy Nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.

Don’t miss the chance to see LeRoy perform live, in person, under the starts.  Join us this Saturday and enjoy some amazing music by an exceptionally talented artist.

It's National Girlfriend Day! And... Announcing our 10th Anniversary Working Girl Road Trip Contest

Yesterday I was thumbing through a magazine and noted August 1 is National Girlfriend Day! I thing every day is “National Something Day ” but this one is pretty special to me and also perfect for announcing our Working Girl Road Trip Contest in honor of our 10th Anniversary of Working Girl Wines.

While contest details are not totally complete this is quite a start…
  • Fly to Seattle (2 round-trip tickets from anywhere Southwest Airline flies in U.S.)
  • Drive to the Olympic Peninsula which includes a beautiful Washington ferry ride (rental car provided)
  • Spend 2 nights in a 2 bedroom cabin courtesy of John Wayne Waterfront Resort
  • Attend our “Lucille Ball” style Grape Stomp and Concert at Olympic Cellars Winery on September 14 (need to start working on your costume)
  • Enjoy Olympic Coast Cuisine throughout your visit
  • Walk the beaches, hike our trails, visit Hurricane Ridge and, so much more!
  • Targeting September 13-16. Fly in on Friday and fly out on Monday. (Dates are flexible)
Contest details will be announced on our Facebook page next week. So if you haven’t ‘liked’ Olympic Cellars, this would be a good time. And not to worry, if the winner is from Washington and doesn’t need the airline tickets then fly two friends to Seattle.

Now while I have your attention…
Saturday night, August 3, is a Rolling Stones Tribute Band Concert at the winery. When this band was booked my initial reaction was skeptical… loud, heavy metal, not my type of music. Then I listened to all the promo music and YouTube videos for the Midnight Rambler Band and I was hooked.

I guess I forgot how many great, great songs I knew and yes, I was dancing with my computer. Better yet, as one of our fans said on Facebook, “These guys are at lot healthier looking than the real Rolling Stones.” And I said… because they’re not 70! So join us… it’s going to be another great night at the winery under the stars.

Best,
Kathy and the Working Girls
