Ever wonder what there is to do on a Wednesday night in Sedona? June 8 features fun music to sing along with, and perhaps dance along to, by Rick Busbea. Rick always entertains with a high-energy performance singing favorite tunes by Croce, Buffett, Chesney and more.

You can catch Rick Busbea live every 2nd and 4th Wednesday at Vino Di Sedona, 7-10 p.m.

What do Simon & Garfunkel, The Everly Brothers, Seals & Crofts, Loggins & Messina and Chad & Jeremy all have in common? They were all dynamic pairings of two musicians, who together created a signature sound that was instantly recognizable.

Thursday June 9, 7-10 p.m., Vino Di Sedona features two such musicians. Chris Seymour and Rick Cyge have that same kind of chemistry they create when they combine their unique individual talents that contrast and compliment one another into a single collaborative sound, Seymour & Cyge. Each of these artists brings a depth of experience and distinctive style to the mix. They released their debut CD, "Are You Happy Now?" in 2012.

Rick Cyge, a seasoned performer with over 45 years on stage and a veteran of the Boston-area folk and acoustic music scene of the 1970s and 80s, performed as a solo singer/guitarist in that vibrant scene and honed his skills as not only a top-notch and well-respected guitarist, performer and composer, but also became a highly sought after side man whose talents enhanced the sounds of those he accompanied both live and in the studio.

Chris Seymour has become a fixture in the Sedona music scene with his stint in the Oak Creek Boys, a country band that covers contemporary and traditional country classics, The Heavenly J's (as John Denver and Johnny Cash) and The Rifftors, a 50s tribute band where both Seymour and Cyge are featured artists.

In addition, Seymour has produced several Theme Night concerts at Studio Live. Seymour brings humor and a palpable love for all types of acoustic and folk music to his performance.

Be swept away to the feel of a 1960's beach party when Randy J takes the stage at Vino Di Sedona on Friday June 10, 7-10 p.m. Randy is famous for his 50's and 60's style surf guitar.

Born in Orlando, Florida, Randy J moved to Los Angeles in 1987 and shortly thereafter began composing music for film trailers and TV spots. He returned to Orlando and formed his band the Tarantulas in 1995; now a Sedona resident, Randy performs as a solo artist and with The Tarantulas as the guitarist and lead singer.

Saturday's double dose of music at Vino Di Sedona on June 11 features two local Sedona favorites, Paolo, and Alex Ogburn. Paolo's jazz classics accompany afternoon wine tasting, 3:30-6 p.m., his favorite song is always the one he is performing at the time, and he really puts himself fully into his music.

Ogburn takes over for night-time entertainment, 7-10 p.m. Ogburn's music career has taken him from Birmingham, Alabama, to Orlando, Florida, to Sedona. In Birmingham, Ogburn began playing in pubs and restaurants at the age of 19.

The years in Birmingham contribute to Ogburn's fiery and soulful Southern blues. Ogburn's show will include unique interpretations of a wide range of choice covers, and eclectic originals.

Jim French's weekly Open Jam at Vino Di Sedona is becoming a popular Sunday evening destination for locals, musicians, and tourists.

Jim French and his talented friends invite other musicians to join in and play music every Sunday, 6-9 p.m. Be a part of the entertainment or a part of the audience, either way a fun night is sure to be had by all.

Up and coming Sedona musician Cole Ray Sunshine to perform on Music Monday at Vino Di Sedona, June 13 6:30-9 p.m. Cole is joined by the Tomorrow People for his first full performance. Cole is a regular at Open Mic playing Americana and folk.
