"Fun On Saturday Night" (Rip Cat Records) is the Blasters' sixth and latest studio album, featuring twelve tracks that extend the band's legacy of classic recordings. Fronted by Phil Alvin's powerful vocals, the band follows through with spontaneity, power and grit that make their live performances into experiences not to be missed.

Get your weekend off to a great start with a free wine tasting starring some sensational Southern French wines. You'll get to try a crisp and aromatic white, an award winning and highly rated dry rosé, and plush and juicy red from a rising star producer. I continue to be amazed with the incredible wine values that come out of Southern France. The Rhone Valley, Provence, and the Languedoc-Roussillon typically experience warm and sunny growing seasons, and you can certainly taste those attributes in the wines. Join us as we introduce you to 3 great values perfect for spring and summer. Up first, it's a fresh and exotic white blend from Isle Saint-Pierre, an island in the middle of the Rhone River. I love sipping on this refreshing little wine while sunbathing by the beach or the pool -- you will too. After that, it's a dramatically delicious dry rosé from Chateau Puech-Haut, arguably the top producer in the region. A blend of Grenache and Cinsault, the new vintage just received 92 points from The Wine Advocate. That's one of the highest scoring rosés of the vintage! To finish, we'll pour you one of my personal new favorites, a sumptous red from the Ventoux. A classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre, I love this one with burgers, bbq, or lamb. Sound good? All you have to do is stop by, taste, learn and save big on all of the tasting wines. Can’t make it by, but want to place an order? Just email me at [email protected] The Wines All of the featured tasting wines are on sale the day of the tasting: take 10% off if you mix any 3, 15% off if you mix any 6, or 20% off if you mix any 12. 1. 2016 Isle Saint-Pierre Blanc (Southern Rhone Valley) – Isle Saint-Pierre is a small island in the middle of the Rhône river just 10 miles inland from the Mediterranean. This close proximity to the sea ensures a cooling influence resulting in fresh, easy drinking, "bistro-styled" wines for everyday consumption. The white is made up of 70% Chardonnay, 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscat and is fermented entirely in stainless steel. Offering up lovely notes of pear, apple, mixed citrus and honeysuckle, it is a white wine for all palates. Tasting Price: $10.79 on mixed 3-packs | $10.19 on mixed 6-packs | $9.59 on mixed cases 2. 2016 Chateau Puech-Haut Prestige Rosé (Languedoc) - I've drunk a lot of Puech-Haut wines over the years, and I tend to agree with Jeb Dunnuck of The Wine Advocate who called it "easily one of the top estates in the Languedoc." The new release of their rosé is another winner that I could drink for days. Primarily Grenache with a dollop of Cinsault, all of the grapes come from 30-60 year old, biodynamically farmed vineyards. Quite pale in color but intensely aromatic with notes of white flowers, strawberry and white peach, it's just straight up gorgeous. Tasting Price: $19.79/bottle | $18.69 in a mixed six pack | $17.59 in a mixed case 3. 2015 Domaine Terrasses d'Eole Ventoux Rouge (Southern Rhone Valley) - I love happy stories like the one involving this small domaine. For years, the family just grew grapes and sold them off to the local cooperative. In 1998, son Stephane Saurel convinced his parents to start bottling their own wines...........the rest is history as this small, family run domaine is really clicking on all cylinders. The red combines 65% Grenache with 25% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre. Fermentation occurs in concrete and the resulting wine is simply delicious with notes of ripe cherry, blueberry, peppery spice and herb. Tasting Price: $13.49/bottle | $12.74 in a mixed six pack | $11.99 in a mixed case

Nik West brings the "funk groovement" to the stage at New Mountain AVL on Friday, May 26th. • More about Nik West • She sports a colorful mohawk shaped like a bass clef. Explosive stage presence isn't enough to describe the way Nik West moves, wows, and shocks crowds everywhere. "She is a real life gumby on stage, all while singing, dancing, and slapping the hell out of her bass guitar!" With credits that include work for artists such as, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame, Prince, Glee, and more, bassist, singer, and songwriter Nik West is anything more than just another pretty face. Noted music journalist Alex Henderson (Billboard) sums West’s incredible talent up saying “Nik West is one 21st Century artist who isn’t lacking in the chops department. She is a young electric bassist who clearly knows her way around her instrument and plays like she has been inspired by the funky likes of Larry Graham, Louis Johnson (of Brothers Johnson fame) and Marcus Miller." She is also a highly expressive singer. Known for impressively recording a cover of "Back In Black" by AC/DC, Nik shocked many rock fanatics and became a new favorite of Steven Tyler and Lenny Kravitz. She has also shared stages with John Mayer, Sugarland, Macy Gray, Bootsy Collins, George Clinton/Parliament Funkadelic, and Orianthi. In June 2016 Nik joined Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, and Slash as a cover girl for American Musical Magazine. She has appeared on the covers of virtually every bass magazine and has been featured in numerous publications for Vanity Fair, Teen Vogue, Rollingstone, Afropunk and more. “Nik West is definitely bringing back the funk groovement and I love everything about what she stands for!” -Bootsy Collins

"Whether you like it or not..." Levitation Jones returns to Asheville on Friday, May 26th with Ludge + Orchestrobe! Hailing from a small town in Rhode Island where top 40 is the norm; Levitation Jones, Brian Gardner, steps up to the plate with quite a surprising, rule bending, curve ball approach, stretching the spectrum of bass physics. This quickly rising producer blends his original productions with heavy influences of dubstep and future bass paired with a seemingly effortless style of live mixing, pulling his audience in for a trip to the depths of the strange and the weird. With recent performances on the revered Camp Bisco, Big Dub Festival, Creatures of the Night Festival, F.A.R.M Fest and more along with 40+ club shows across the U.S just last year, it’s no question Levitation Jones is making major waves in the bass music industry, earning him a loyal following. Levitation Jones has shared the stage with Minnesota, G Jones, Space Jesus, The Widdler, Thriftworks, Kaminanda, Yheti, and many more.

On Saturday, May 27, 2017, Buncombe County Recreation Services, will host a Veterans Fishing Day at Charles D. Owen Park in Swannanoa (875 Warren Wilson Road, Swannanoa, NC 28778).  The fishing tournament is open to all veterans. Veterans who register for the event (with proof of veterans status including VA Card, Military ID, NCDL with Veteran status or DD214 form) and their guests will be able to fish at Owen Pond during the event regardless of whether they currently hold a NC Fishing License. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have lost their lives in service to the United States. While the meaning of the holiday can often be lost during the long weekend that marks the beginning of the summer season, it can hold particular significance to veterans. The intent of the event is to provide area veterans an opportunity to enjoy the solace of the outdoors and a space for remembrance and reflection. Check-in and registration begins at 8am and hooks can hit the water anytime there after until noon. Registration is free and includes snacks and a hot dog lunch for veterans. Veterans can bring their families or a fishing buddy to the event. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing supplies. Come bring your chair, toss a hook in the water and relax by the calming waters of the Owen Ponds.  Trout, Large and Small Mouth Bass, Crappie and Cat Fish have all been snagged by anglers in these waters. Owen Pond offers accessible spaces for anglers with mobility limitations.

Loretta Lynn and EmiSunshine EmiSunshine and The Rain: "As the Waters Rise" Live 9/2/16 Newport, KY EmiSunshine American Dream Emi Sunshine on The Today Show Emi Sunshine - Jolene It's impossible to explain the exceptional talents of EmiSunshine, an 11-year-old East Tennessee prodigy who has captured the nation's attention as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Steeped in Appalachian music, she is a true vocal stylist, one who instinctively knows how to interpret the nuances of a song with her impressive range, even though she has yet to gain the life experience and empathy seemingly necessary to fully comprehend the words she sings. Despite a given name that reflects optimism, she is drawn to darker themes of pain, anguish and even murder, like that of The Louvin Brothers, whom she loves.

The Tennessean is just the latest to describe her as "an old soul," noting, "Onstage, this soul's presence is commanding and her singing voice authentic and folksy." While her youth might remind many of Taylor Swift, a more apt comparison would be to artists such as Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss or members of the Carter Family.

Whether she's performing on the Today show or the Grand Ole Opry or taking the stage at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium, she is fearless, confident and firm in her musical direction. As she says, she sings "old-time music," but it's her own unique blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, bluegrass, gospel, and country, with a little bit of blues thrown in for good measure. Her talent is indescribable and inexplicable, but fortunately, it doesn't have to be understood to be appreciated.

"What makes me want to do this is I just love it," she says. "I just really, really love it. I wouldn't trade anything not to do this."

"I love how I get to sing to people and make them happy," she says. "I'm really blessed that I get to do this. It makes me feel amazing, like I'm touching somebody's life."

Offstage, Emilie Sunshine Hamilton is a typical 11-year-old girl who loves video games, pets and colorful clothes. She's had a normal upbringing in Madisonville, Tenn., where her mother worked as a nurse and her father is a recording engineer. But when she begins singing, playing or writing, something else takes over, a phenomenon that began before she could talk.

Before she spoke, at around 10 months old, she began singing pure tones and humming melodies from Tom Petty songs. She harmonized with her grandmothers and great-grandmothers, continuing a musical heritage to a third generation. Great-grandmother Wanda Matthews sang on the Tennessee Barn Dance and gave Emi the same advice that June Carter Cash gave her: Don't let anybody walk all over you and don't think nothin' about what they say.

As soon as Emi was old enough to walk down the aisle, she began singing in church. She was too little to know the words, but you could hear her harmonies over the others'. At age 4, she sang "You Are My Sunshine" at her aunt's wedding and learned how to sing the Dixie Chicks' "Traveling Soldier." When she was three and four, her mother, who is a songwriter, created songs for her, but by age 5, she wrote her first song, "My Time to Fly."

At age 7, she learned how to play the ukulele—the guitar was too big for her little hands–and used it to write "Little Weeping Willow Tree." That was the same year she recorded her first two albums, Strong as the Tall Pine and Wide River to Cross in her father's studio. She learned how to play guitar and mandolin at age nine –the picks are still too large for her–and has since picked up the xylophone. By age 8, she was stripping down "Hush Little Baby" and rearranging the melody to sing to the pigs.

Her parents filled the house with music by Buddy Miller, Johnny and June Carter Cash and Emmylou Harris, and her musical tastes were formed. Those influences served as a foundation on which she built her own sound. "It's kind of what came out," she says of her sound. "I always loved that music and I thought, 'That's what I wanted to play. This is what I want to do.'"

She performed in churches, festivals, theaters, and for a time, talent shows. "One day I decided I didn't want to do talent shows anymore because you could see the kids' disappointment and it didn't make me happy," she says.

She had no idea that someone captured her flea market performance of Jimmie Rodgers' "Blue Yodel No. 6" and posted it on YouTube in 2014. "It went viral," she says. "We started getting a bunch of likes and we didn't really know where it was coming from."

Again, without the family's knowledge, the Today show featured the video. "We were really excited and surprised," she says. "We didn't know what to think." There was such a tremendous response to her performance that the show invited her on to perform live, a moment that changed her life because word of her talent immediately spread on Music Row.

It led to performances on Marty Stuart's Late Night Jam at the Ryman during CMA Music Fest, and then to ongoing performances at the Grand Ole Opry.

She performs about 150 shows a year and touring is a family affair. Her mother took a leap of faith and gave up her nursing career to travel. Father Randall Hamilton plays upright bass, her brother is on mandolin, Uncle Bobby is on drums and Aunt Kristal sells merchandise. "It's fun, like how I get to be with my family all the time."

Emi, who has 490,000 "likes" on Facebook, remains unaware of much of the whirlwind and demand swirling around her. "When we're in Oklahoma and people recognize her, she doesn't get why they know her," says her mother, Alisha Hamilton. "When they come up and say, 'My mama was dying and you gave her the best four weeks of her life. You comforted her and me.' She doesn't understand that she has made that impact on people's lives. I tell her some of it, but not all of it, because it's a heavy weight."

EmiSunshine's career moves will be dictated not by opportunities, but integrity. She knows who she is and what she wants her music to be, and her parents remain committed to ensuring that her wishes are not compromised in any way. After coming off a year where many of her dreams came true, Emi is quickly creating new dreams and plans. But her ultimate goal remains the same: "I just want everybody to know who I am."
