The music keeps flowing and the fun keeps going at Bella Vita Ristorante in Sedona this weekend.

Friday, Aug. 20, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., local favorite Dan Vega entertains on the restaurant’s outdoor patio stage.

Young, talented and gifted with a golden voice, Vega is considered one of Sedona’s top-musical entertainers.

Accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, Vega scrolls through decades of classic music defining the generations and the music they loved.

Poised, engaging and mellow, he is a pleasure to watch perform. He is an up-and-coming musician who might one day reach the stars.

Saturday, Aug. 21, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., it’s Jerry McFarland’s turn to take over the stage.

McFarland is what’s called in the live-music performance world “an audience engager.” Once he’s on that stage an instant rapport is established between him and his audience.

He makes the connection and never unplugs as he takes his audience through a musical journey spanning many decades.

His repertoire of classics spans the generations and his performance is impeccable. His voice and his guitar playing blend perfectly together and every song he plays is enriched by his personal interpretation.

Bella Vita Ristorante is located two miles west of the Courtyard by Marriott on 89A near mile marker 368 at 6701 West State Route 89A.

Social distancing will be maintained, masks and gloves on servers. Temperatures will be taken on all guests. Visit  bellavitarestaurant.com or call 928-282-4540.
