VACAVILLE — Tim Steele was ready for some Whiskey & Honey while sampling some Sierra Nevada brew.
He wasn’t alone. The Vacaville resident was accompanied by his wife, children, sister, brother-in-law, father and his girlfriend at the annual Art, Wine & Brew Festival.
They were all there to listen to the tunes of Whiskey and Honey, a six-piece Vacaville-based band. Steele’s cousin, Lisa Scott, belongs to the group.
Michael and Elizabeth Lumb were there for the tunes, too. The Vacaville couple sipped on light beer just before Whiskey & Honey hit the stage in Town Square.
“Sunshine, good music and nice people,” attracted the two to the event, Michael Lumb said.
The three-day festival kicked off Friday night with music from Roy Rogers & The Delta Rhythm Kings. About 800 people packed the area, said Bob Vollmer of the Vacaville Downtown Business Improvement District.
He was hoping for the same numbers Saturday night as The Laurie Morvan Band were to play at 7 p.m.
Those willing to ante up a little cash could sample 13 different beers. A wine stroll followed Saturday evening, featuring varieties from the Suisun Valley.
Artists from the Vacaville Art League were also on hand.
The event continues today with music from the Beer Brothers at 11 a.m., Total Recall at 12:30 p.m. and Val Starr & The Blues Rockets at 2:30 p.m.
Admission is free.
