â€œWe are really excited that Brian Wilson will be joining us for the Saturday night concert for Sunset SAVOR the Central Coast,â€ said Stacie Jacob, CEO of Visit San Luis Obispo County, which organizes the four-day wine and food event with Sunset, the premier guide to life in the West. â€œBrian Wilson is truly one of music's most deeply revered figures, and the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. Weâ€™re honored to offer this exclusive opportunity to experience his music in a spectacular vineyard setting in Paso Robles, which Wine Enthusiast recently named as their 2013 Wine Region of the Year.
