Aloft Hotels signs deal with Live In The Vineyard Aloft Hotels is partnering with live music event, “Live in the Vineyard.” Aloft is the title sponsor of “Live in the Vineyard,” a twice-yearly private “once-in-a-lifetime” live music showcase featuring on-the-verge artists and big name bands alike. The event will include a series of live acoustic sets at Aloft properties across the country throughout the year. Currently going in to its third year, “Live in the Vineyard” (www.liveinthevineyard.com) is the brainchild of Bobbii Hach-Jacobs and Claire Parr. It is an intimate grassroots music festival held at a number of boutique wineries in California’s Napa Valley every April and November. Acts currently confirmed to take the stage at the upcoming April 2010 “Live in the Vineyard” event include Train, Melissa Etheridge, Back Street Boys, Macy Gray, Tonic and Ryan Star among others. Tickets for the exclusive events cannot be purchased -- they must be won through radio station promotions and online contests and through special Aloft Hotels promotions, including a giveaway at www.facebook.com\alofthotels.
