Wine and Jazz Night

August 31, 2019

Enjoy smooth jazz, an end-of-summer breeze, chilled wine and high end concessions- Saturday night of Labor Day Weekend at Oklahoma’s most unique lodging destination—POSTOAK Lodge & Retreat, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Book your room and/or tickets now for the POSTOAK Wine and Jazz Night. August 31, 2019, 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. The headliner is none other than local favorite and gifted showman, Grady Nichols. Nichols released his debut album, Between You and Me in 1996. Since then he has released four more albums, his most recent, Falling in Love with Christmas, a collection of timeless favorites with a new mix of original interpretations featuring Andy Chrisman, Jeff Lorber and others. A 2016 recipient of the Golden Hope Award, Nichols has also received the Legacy Tribute Award from the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, and the Outstanding Achievement in Jazz honor from the prestigious Charlie Christian Music Festival. Nichols was the only artist to open on Pavarotti’s North America Farewell Tour, and he continues to work with a wide range of artists, including Chicago’s Bill Champlin, and Leigh Nash of Sixpence None the Richer. Award winning producer and songwriter Zac Maloy, including Carrie Underwood’s #1 single “Temporary Home” and founder of the Nixons, says “Grady is an absolute pro and super talented musician. I found him to be open minded and eager to push the envelope. For that, I believe the end result is a fresh take on the modern jazz genre. Deep Branch Wine will be pouring their award winning “Blind Luck” labels, and POSTOAK will be supplying craft beers, specialty cocktails and non-alcoholic summery options. Known for his fish tacos, spicy shrimp bowls and braised beef lettuce wraps from previous Wine & Jazz Festivals, POSTOAK’s Chef Damien Jacob will be curating a selection of tasty concessions for this year’s crowd. Look for the best selling antipasta plate, and fresh watermelon salad. A limited number of tickets will be available for VIP seating and special access to the Wine Tasting and “Meet the Sommes”. POSTOAK will offer door prizes and a fantastic chance to win a “Visit the Osage Basket” to a lucky winner. Accommodations can be arranged through POSTOAK’s website or calling 918-425-2112. Single/Double occupancy includes a scrumptious breakfast buffet, and tickets to the Wine/Jazz night. Spend the night and enjoy swimming, fishing, and relaxing on your front porch swing.
