"American Express, Dave Matthews and John Besh invite you to the historic Robert Mondavi Winery in Napa Valley for a once-in-a-lifetime event. Join acclaimed musician Dave Matthews for a rare solo performance along with celebrated New Orleans-based Chef and music enthusiast, John Besh, for a curated collaboration as they share with you their passion for music and fine food. The evening will feature an epicurean feast inspired by Chef Besh’s new cookbook, My New Orleans
. Following the dinner, Dave will perform an intimate acoustic performance. Much of Dave Matthews Band’s latest studio album, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King
, was recorded in New Orleans and heavily inspired by the band’s time spent in the Crescent City.
"Cardmembers will enjoy a spectacular multi-course dinner, featuring a menu co-created by Chef Besh and Dave Matthews, set in an intimate dining room, with Robert Mondavi wines perfectly paired to each course.
"In celebration of, and as a tribute to the city and people of New Orleans, Dave’s Foundation, the Horton Fund, which is a part of the Charlottesville Albemarle Community Foundation, will donate the ticket proceeds to various charities."
