Live from Bays de Noc – some of the best jamming, clapping, swaying, singing and dancing-in-the-grass days are coming your way this summer! We do love music by the Bays — and you will, too. Our backdrops are beautiful. Rhythmic, white-capped waves rolling onto the sand. Rustling grape leaves in our vineyards. Sunshine. Food. Life is so relaxing. Stay awhile and soak it in.
