A little more about the band...

The four women who make up the Bay area- based group have some experience with improbable complexities and contradictions. Almost everything about their history is contrary to conventional wisdom. For one thing, they put their individual careers aside to start Blame Sally when they were in their late 30s and 40s—the age at which bands are traditionally supposed to break up and begin solo careers. For another, this is obviously an all-woman band—“girl groups” usually being the novel province of youthful upstarts, not mature singer/songwriters.  To read more about the band click HERE.

As with all of our summer concerts, music is solar powered by:

Art Exhibit: Beti Kristof
Art Exhibit: Beti Kristof

For the month of August Castoro Cellars welcomes Beti Kristof of Las Vegas, Nevada.  She will be displaying her oil on canvas pieces in the Events Gallery.  Stop by anytime between 10-5:30pm daily to enjoy her artwork and sip on some "Dam Fine Wine"!

More about the artist...

Beti Kristof might best be called "Renaissance Woman".  She is a gifted artist who has displayed a level of mastery in art that is rarely seen today.  Her work is offered by leading galleries and is displayed in prominent private collections and corporate headquarters throughout the United States.

Raised in Southern California, Beti now resides in Las Vegas.  She is proud to be the daughter of Hungarian immigrants who escaped communism to raise their child in a free nation. At age 17, Beti was accepted to the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. At a young age her talent was so apparent that she was invited to apprentice with two of  Europe's finest artists; Eva and Americo Makk.

While apprenticing in Europe, Beti’s talent gained her invitations to the world of European Art Masters, that most artists only dream of gaining access to ... Her passion for painting led her to the Sacchi Studio in Italy, where she developed her skills further. Beti was invited into the vaults of Pitti Palace, to study and sketch from the original works of Titan, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, and Da Vinci, as well as other masters.  She also furthered her skills in life drawing, in the studios of Joseph Sheppard and Madame Simi, in Florence. Upon her return to the United States, Beti continued her training with the celebrated artist, Theodore Lukits.

Beti has demonstrated a wide range of artistic abilities. She has illustrated books; Tiko and the Tramp , Ted's Simple Truth, as well as The First Football ABC Pretzel Book - which she authored as well.
In 2007, Beti was awarded the highly coveted International “Muse Award” for Oil Painting.

Beti’s many public exhibits include: Nevada State Senate, Cirque du Soleil,  Mono County Museum, Hungarian Freedom Fighters Exhibit. She was awarded Public Mural placement for the City of Las Vegas, and created a commissioned sculpture for Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, as well as a commissioned portrait of former Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn and his wife.

Beti Kristof’s many styles of painting and sculpting reflect the depth of her formal training, and add to her well-deserved stature as one of the Southwest’s leading artists.

Beti  is involved with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation, a national organization that comes to the aid and support of families with children who have cancer. Beti has experienced this first-hand, so a portion of the proceeds of THE FIRST FOOTBALL ABC PRETZEL BOOK are donated to Candlelighters. (We are pleased to tell you that she has a child who is a cancer survivor!)

Our famous Lazy Locals Concert Series isn't slowing down in August!  This month Castoro is excited to feature one of our Beaverstock 2015 artists: 1X Spaceman (that's One Time Spaceman) takes the stage from 1-4PM.

This is another FREE concert at Castoro Cellars!  Bring a picnic or order lunch from a great vendor.  Some seating will be provided but guests are encouraged to bring their own lowbacked chair.

Who is 1XSpaceman?

  • Mark Adams - Vocals and Guitar
  • Dylan Johnson - Bass and Vocals
  • Jacob Odell - Guitar
  • Chandler Smiley – Drums

Every member of One Time Spaceman was born and raised in SLO County. Throughout their
musical careers they have played all of the biggest local stages including the Live Oak Music
Festival, the Vina Robles Amphitheater, the Mid State Fair, the Morro Bay Harvest Festival,
Savor the Central Coast and many, many more.

Among their glowing references are the owners of dozens of wineries, Radio Professionals and
events planners. They currently have three songs in regular rotation on 92.5 Krush FM including their first single "Bobby Fox", and have developed a massive, crowd pleasing repertoire of covers and originals which seamlessly blend classic Americana with scorching improvisational jams, pocket psychedelic grooves, riff-based blues and rollicking outlaw country.

The band draws from a broad musical background. Jacob Odell & Dylan Johnson also perform
with New Times Award winners Zongo All Stars while singer/songwriter Mark Adams comes
from the acclaimed country group (and multiple New Times Award winner) Rancho Deluxe.
They are all professional musicians with vast repertoires and total commitment to putting on the best live performances in the area. Regardless of the venue, they always perform for their

About the band...

Since their formation in 1999, Resination has grown exponentially from a powerhouse quartet, into a nine piece Roots, Rock, Reggae machine that is taking the reggae community by storm. Emitting eclectic sounds of jazz, soul, reggae, funk, and blues, it is no wonder why Resination makes any crowd demographic stop and dance in their spot. On top of the colorful modern roots reggae rhythms that the players of instrument showcase, lead vocalist Vance Fahie takes the crowd on an unforgettable journey of positive energy and conscious messages. 

The initial groundwork was laid by lead singer Vance Fahie (AKA "Noche Man"), bassist Ian Hartman, and lead guitarist/backing vocalist Patrick Pearson. The past few years has seen the addition of a horn section comprise of Patrick Rojo Reynolds on trumpet, and Colin Dean on trombone. Thomas Toes Cuffe, provides the essential keyboard rhythms and Mike "Mikey J" Jimenez excels on rhythm guitar. The soulful Empress, Raeme Miner, lends her voice to complete Resination's three part harmonies and takes the lead on a handful of tracks. "Tuff" Tim Cordero lives up to his name and holds down the steady roots rhythm on drums. 

Without a doubt, a Resination show is always positive and uplifting, captivating the masses and unifying the people who share the love of not only the music, but also the message it sends!

Art Exhibit: Stephen Price
Art Exhibit: Stephen Price

Stephen Price is well known here in Templeton and we are excited to have him here at Castoro Cellars for the month of November.  Stephen has been a professional artist for thirty-six years.  His plein-air paintings, acrylic landscapes, watercolors, airbrush art, trompe l’oeil and fine art murals are in galleries and private collections on many continents.  Recently he completed a 6,300 sq ft Italian vineyard walk-in mural environment on a private estate in California with many trompe l’oeil, or ‘fool-the-eye’ architectural elements.  

View Stephen's paintings on display in the Art Gallery daily from 10-5:30PM.

More from the artist...

“I always challenge myself to make things appear as real as I possibly can,” says Price, “whether it’s the patterns of froth on the face of a wave or a tiny section of deteriorated wood--I enjoy going very deeply into the details of the visual surface.  When the viewer is compelled to reach out and touch the painting to verify his perceptions, that’s my reward.”
Price was born in Akron, Ohio and attended the University of Akron and the Akron Art Institute before moving to Laguna Beach, California in 1971.  He found work as an airbrush artist and then excelled in the competitive field of photo-retouching.
The Central Coast has provided inspiration for hundreds of paintings, including a series of miniature watercolors of historic buildings of Cambria, acrylic and watercolor landscapes painted on location, and imaginative works with black-light dual images.
An original airbrush watercolor painting by Stephen Price, “Cambria Ocean View”, was juried into Greenwich Workshop’s 2007 Small Works North America show, chosen from a field of over 900 small-scale paintings by America’s finest artists.  In the spring of 2008 he was asked to loan two of his trompe l’oeil pieces for an exhibition called “Lie to the Eye” at the Bakersfield Musuem of Art.  This prestigious gathering of work represented thirteen contemporary masters of the genre. “Trompe l’Oeil en Plein Air”, a three-dimensional chantournee cut-out painting of an artist’s easel, and “Rare Signed First Edition” a canvas painted to deceive the viewer into believing it to be a leather-bound book, were the two Price pieces in the show.  
Stephen was honored to be contacted by Dimitri Salmon of the Louvre Museum in Paris, France last year in connection with an upcoming exhibit of historical and modern verso paintings.  Dimitri spotted Stephen's examples of this rare trompe l'oeil subject on his website and emailed him for more information to be included in documentation. 
Stephen Price lives and works in Templeton, California, in the heart of wine country.  Current galleries exhibiting his art include Artifacts Gallery, ECR Gallery, Chambers Gallery in Cambria, Dark Nectar and The 9's in Templeton, California.
