Darke County Center for the Arts will present “A Taste of Wine and Jazz XXVII” on Friday, May 16 at Montage Cafe in downtown Greenville. The wine tasting party, a fundraiser for the local arts organization, will feature food and music in addition to a selection of fine wines. “We're inviting everyone to join in this celebration of spring, music, food, and wine. You'll see old friends and make new ones at this festive party which will not only be a lot of fun but will also help keep the arts alive in our community,” said DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan.

Music will be provided by Deron Bell and the “Jazz For You” band, a group which has earned a large local following. “Deron Bell can do it all; he sings, plays a variety of instruments, and covers a broad spectrum of music,” said Keith Rawlins, DCCA Artistic Director. “The quality of the musicianship achieved by Deron and his band is equaled by the group's joy in playing, making for a memorably good time for all concerned.” The band’s performance is made possible through the sponsorship of Cox Insurance, Zechar Bailey Funeral Home, and Kent and Melinda Myers.

“A Taste of Wine and Jazz” provides a casual social setting where attendees can enjoy the music and visit with friends while discovering the differing attributes of a variety of wines. Montage proprietors Aaron and Michelle Cox will prepare an exciting array of hors d’oeuvres to complement the wine selections. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the event closes with the awarding of door prizes at 8:30 p.m.

Tickets to “A Taste of Wine and Jazz” are $35 each, and are available at Montage and at DCCA’s office inside Greenville Public Library, or can be ordered by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 and online at
