On Friday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m., experience the music of vocal powerhouse CaroMia Tiller at the Classic Wineseller. Tiller’s live musical presence has been compared to Janis Joplin, Adele, and even "Ray Charles in a little white girl's body."

The Wineseller’s restaurant opens at 5:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays serving freshly prepared small plate fare. There is a $10 per person minimum which includes food, drink, and retail purchases. Reservations are accepted between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. by calling 452-6000. For more information visit

Tiller’s biography reads like an adventure novel. From a very young age, the free-spirited Tiller has been making her own rules. The soul-shaking power behind her voice seems to draw on a few lifetimes' worth of experience. From a world of inspiration Tiller distills an arresting and immediately recognizable sound: her own signature blend of rootsy Americana, soul and blues.


Joe Cruz is back Saturday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. performing the top hits of the Beatles and Elton John. Cruz grew up in a musical family in New York City, playing and singing in church from a young age. He became a regular on the New York club scene and has opened for Chicago, Bonnie Raitt, Santana, and Average White Band. Cruz resides in Haywood County with his wife, Tracey, and their daughters.

The Classic Wineseller is Waynesville’s premier retail wine and craft beer shop, small plate restaurant, and intimate live music venue. Enjoy local, regional, or national performers each Friday and Saturday night at 7 p.m. in the underground environs at 20 Church St., Waynesville.
