Welcome to the Santa Ynez Valley!

We're about 130 miles north of Los Angeles via Highway 101, or a 40 minute drive from Santa Barbara. Here's an idyllic combination of ranching tradition and blossoming Wine Country - a perfect weekend get-away for Southern Californians.   [more]

Modern Day Psalmist Visits the Santa Ynez Valley

One of the rising stars in the Christian Contemporary Music arena, Marty Goetz, is a combination composer, musician, vocalist, and entertainer. Marty presents a fresh outlook on Christian Music, coming from an conservative Jewish background and transforming into a "Messianic Jew", one who read the Old Testament and discovered Jesus. His music is calming, his lyrics are Biblical, and his schtick is hilarious.

Marty will be performing a single concert at the Solvang Veterans hall at 6pm on Sunday, November 2, 2014, with a theme of Thanksgiving - the first "Thanksgiving Music Festival" hosted by Santa Ynez Valley's CBMC group. The theme of the concert is a focus on what we have to be thankful for in the coming holiday season.

This evening of celebration falls on the heels of a number of Harvest Festivals - Oktoberfest, and the Jewish festival of Sukkot. It also leads us into a season associated with football and turkey - the American Thanksgiving holiday.   [more]
