Entertainment

Ripe
Judah & The Lion

Reminder: Admission to this event is free to the public.

Ripe is a Funk/Pop band from Boston and we are thrilled to welcome them to Carmel! The seven-member band has been touring nationally from coast to coast playing at venues such as New York’s Gramercy Theatre and California’s High Sierra Music Festival. The band is represented by the popular Paradigm Talent Agency, whose clients include Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay and Aerosmith, to name a few.

 The original members of Ripe met during a jam session at a college party and their music snowballed from there. Ripe was born as a result of its seven members united over one belief: with enough passion and honesty, music can still make the Earth shake.

Read more about Ripe.
With one eye looking back to the inception of both funk and psychedelic music, and the other looking forward with a modern concept of what makes people move, Ripe seeks both to honor musical history as well as to make it.
Sample Ripe’s sound from their second EP, ‘Hey Hello’.  Listen Here

Ripe will appear on our mainstage at 8:30 p.m.

Brandon Whyde

With his roots in the Midwest, Brandon Whyde is making waves as a musical storyteller with a soul-searching sound.

Growing up in Beech Grove, Indiana, Brandon and his father had a shared love of music. When his father was tragically killed by a drunk driver while Brandon was still a teen, music was Brandon’s escape. He picked up a guitar and never looked back.

Brandon made his way to Nashville, Tennessee to kick start his music career. Although he did not get his big break in Music City, he learned a lot about music and performing from other artists.

His breakthrough moment came back home at an Indianapolis amphitheater. One of the featured performer’s guitarist liked what he heard from Brandon and invited him to his home to record some demos. A year later, those demos found their way to the American singer-songwriter and actor, Josh Kelley, who also invited Brandon to record with him.

After subsequent sessions of recording, he released a 10-song CD that showcases his raw talent and roughhewn voice. Kelley nails it when he describes Brandon’s sound, “He’s like Bob Dylan and Tom Waits got stuck in a blender, and out came Brandon Whyde.”

Brandon Whyde usually tours with his band, but for the Art of Wine festival, he will be connecting with his audience on a more intimate level by performing solo.

Brandon will appear on our mainstage in the PNC parking lot at 7:15 p.m.

Separately Vess Rutenberg and Adam Gross are talented musicians with years of experience in bands such as The Lemonheads, S.M. Wolf, Jot, Zero Boys, and Antenna. Together they are The Wingmen! Their retro beach rock meets Flight of Concords-style band will have you cheering for more.

Special thanks to Carmel Arts and Design District business, Edwin the Duck for bringing The Wingmen to Art of Wine. The Wingmen are Edwin’s official music duo. Bring your Edwin the Duck and dance along to Mellow Yellow Fellow, the Beatleseque Ya-Ya Yum-Yum Good and many more.
