Welcome to the Napa Valley Jazz Getaway
First of all, I'd like to thank all of the amazing friends that joined me this past June including Al Jarreau, Chaka Khan, Boney James, Peter White, Mindi Abair, Spyro Gyra, Eric Darius, The Family Stone, Fred Wesley, Kenny Lattimore, Maysa, Chuck Loeb, Raul Midón, Eric Marienthal, Marqueal Jordan, DW3, Vincent Ingala, Cecil Ramirez, DJ’s Rick & Russ w/CJ Flash and Alonzo Bodden. Everyone totally brought their 'A' game and I'm so humbled by all of their gifts that they shared with us.
Secondly, my hat goes off to my incredible team who worked tirelessly all week long (and over the past year) to pull off such an event. You've got my back and I can't thank you enough for going above and beyond every single minute.
Also, huge thanks to all of our winery partners for being so generous and hospitable. You made it a truly special time for all of us to be able to drink some of the best wine in the world!
Of course, I must thank our presenting sponsor Lexus for their huge support. I've been driving their cars for the past 10 years and I wouldn't even think about driving anything else!
And last but certainly not least, THANK YOU to all of the awesome fans that spent an incredible few days in wine country with us! It means the world to me that you came and shared in something so special. I could seriously feel all the love from everyone so thank you.
I'm already counting the days for next year and can't wait to see you back in beautiful Napa Valley. As you may know, we've just gone on sale for 2016 with the brand new 5-Day Platinum Package in addition to the 4-Day Gold Package so I hope you can join us once again.
My most heartfelt thanks to you all...
Much love & gratitude,
Founder & Artistic Director

“Hi Brian! I have been to all 3 NVJGs and knew after attending the very first one that I would make this my special annual getaway! It has been the highlight of the last 3 years for me! I get to hang out with some of the coolest artists, musicians, and friends in the world for 5 Fun-Filled days!! As long as you keep NVJG going and I am alive, I will be there!!! See you next June!!! Cheers!!!” - Annette Boatswain
“Next year will be our third Napa Getaway and it is now something that we very much look forward to. It is our Getaway that we use as the beginning of the summer. The friends that we have met, the music, the wine, and the food have made it all worthwhile. Brian and his team know how to throw a party and make you feel like you are right at home. Thanks Brian for being so creative and hospitable. Looking forward to next year.” - Bill Bouie
“I've been to all three NVJGs and my excitement for the coming year begins at the end of the event. We always attend the entire four days. It's the best music, food, and of course wine event, and in Napa Valley. It's a must attend event even for us Napa locals. NVJG just gets better and better every year. Kudos Brian.” - Jimmie Collins-Ware
