People had brought their camping chairs, cooler bags, sunglasses and sunhats and made themselves comfortable in front of the stage. The venue is fabulous. I have never been to a concert at a vinyard before. At the vinyard they were selling wine (of course! doh!) and food, so everyone could meet the needs from both tastebuds and empty stomachs.

The weather was beautiful. Sun, happy concert goers, a bit of wine and food. What more could we wish for?
...which we got as well. Crowded House is a band I got to know in the end of the 80's when "Don't Dream It's Over" was played repeatbly over the radio. I didn't hear more from them over the years - until I met my husband who had most of the albums from this band.
It was good fun to see the band live. The band's members have changed over the years for various reasons, but Neil Finn (vocals and songwriter) and Nick Seymour (guitar) are still in it together. The new members are Mark Hart (keyboard and guitar) and Matt Sherrod (drums).
