VINO 100 wine shop has had many events ranging from "Yappie
Hour " for our Canine friends to Food and Wine pairing classes. Their latest cutting edge event for a wine shop was their evening
of wine and jazz. We attended the event and were in awe of singer,
artist and teacher Karen Jones.
With a talent like Karen performing amongst the wine in a very
intimate setting we could not help but relax with a great glass of wine and enjoy her talent.
Karen Jones is the daughter of the most famous swing bassist of our time, Eddie Jones, She grew up in the Jazz world in Brooklyn, NY. Her father played with the Count Basie Orchestra for over 10 years. He also loved classical music and played with the Village Light Opera Group at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. Karen absorbed it all. Ellie Jones, Karen’s mother, while not a musician, is a true lover of life. Ellie introduced Karen to a rich variety of musical styles to appreciate and honor.
Karen’s recording career has produced over 50 dance singles and 4 albums. As her vast array of performance venues has grown, so has her seasoned, unique sound. Performing in haute-couture fashion shows, charity concerts, television shows, symphonic concerts, big band concerts, private parties, movie soundtracks, jingles, national concert tours, international concert tours, nightclubs, jazz festivals, cruise ships, weddings, community plazas, and last but not least piano bars.

Karen can be found here in Las Vegas at the Bellagio in the Fontana Bar with its fabulous view of the Bellagio fountains right outside the doors. This is one of the best live music venues in the city and is worth a visit from locals and tourists alike.

very special event. Karen can "sing the phone book "as she effortlessly moved from the Standards to Jazz and on to popular music and even some rock. Here rendition of "Proud Mary " is one that we will always
Owners Natalie and Theresa moved to the
