Then again, he’s equally likely to be talking about the months of extra effort that his 20-member Jazz I band put into their training this year, just to audition for the competition.

Sleek blends with rustic in the Piccola Cellars new tasting room in North Bend. Warm gold walls, a polished concrete floor and steel light fixtures, give the place a modern edge, while the unfinished planks in the bar, plain picnic tables and, on warm days, the open garage doors, create a homey feel.
