Billy Joel, Wine, Octoberfest, Kinderhook: it all adds up to a pair of exciting events at the Inn at Millrace Pond in Hope in September.
On Sunday Sept. 11, it's a special tribute to Billy Joel - and fine wine: We May Be Right .... For Wine & Billy Joel.
This afternoon event under the big tent features the tunes of Billy Joel with the band, "We May Be Right" - and jazz by Loose Measure, and fine wine from 2-6 p.m. The ticket price of $19.95 includes music, cheese and bread selections, and one glass of wine.
Hunterdon County based "We May Be Right" plays a host of Billy Joel's hit tunes, from Uptown Girl, Piano Man, Just The Way You Are, New York State of Mind, Movin' Out to Only The Good Die Young, to name a few.
A reporter from NJ.com who saw the band in Clinton, says that "if I hadn't known better I would have sworn the man from Oyster Bay had paid Clinton a visit. The sound was almost indistinguishable from Billy Joel himself. The band put on quite a show."
Advanced tickets can be purchased at the Inn, in the Village of Hope, or by phone, 908-459-4884.
Country rock band Kinderhook, fresh off its show at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park, brings its fun loving style of music to the Inn on Sunday Sept. 18 for an Octoberfest celebration that includes live music, German fare, and a biergarten with some special German style beers on hand!
The Octoberfest event is free to attend but reservations are recommended.
Both events feature expanded menus. Attendees for both events are invited to bring lawn chairs if they'd like, however, please no coolers or pets.
