The Spazmatics, Bruce Barrios, and a special surprise guest will entertain Festival wine and food enthusiasts. The Spazmatics is a four man band and a tribute to 1980s “nerds that rock”. The Kevin, Syd Sonic, Donald Wilkinson, and Ruben make up this eclectic 1980s new wave band with a sense of humor unlike that of any other band. They have covered songs at Los Angeles clubs including Playhouse, The Key Club, and Rolling Stone’s Hollywood and Highland venue. Known for their synchronized choreography, mini-mashup moments infusing riffs from current hits, and a high level of audience participation, The Spazmatics bring a whole new meaning to “nerds” worldwide.    

Professional Mobile Disc Jockey Bruce Barrios, 15-time winner of the Best Event DJ in Ventura County Award from VC Reporter, will be the Master of Ceremonies and DJ for the Wine and Food Festival. Alongside The Spazmatics, DJ Bruce Barrios will announce the special surprise guest during the event.

In addition to Magic and Mayhem with Shawn McMaster, the funk, R&B, and soul band, Sound Effect will be providing live music at the VIP Lounge sponsored by Wells Fargo.

Wine and food enthusiasts will also be entertained by the Yummies culinary competition which showcases each chef’s entry to be judged based on flavor, presentation, innovation and quality. Entries will be tasted by a panel of celebrity judges comprised of television and print media personalities, food and wine editors, and food and wine columnists based on which chef’s dish they feel is the “Yummiest.” The 2011 Yummie Top Chef Award Winners include winners in both the savory and sweet category.
