The lake that separates Vines Mansion from Vines Botanical Gardens will serve as a picturesque backdrop for the newest addition to outdoor summer concerts series in Gwinnett.

Music at the Vines Mansion has joined concert series in Duluth, Lawrenceville, Norcross and at the Mall of Georgia, and the first concert at the Loganville venue will kick off Sunday with blues acts Col. Bruce Hampton, Randall Bramblett, Yonrico Scott Band and the Mike Delaney Project.

The gentle slope of the grand lawn outside Vines Mansion allows for an amphitheater-like seating arrangement. Concert-goers are invited to bring along lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the show, and concessions will be available for purchase.

In addition to general admission lawn seating, which is $22.50 per person, a limited number of VIP tables will be available and will include a private reception for guests inside the mansion prior to the concert, table seating at the front of the stage and reserved parking. VIP guests can also tour the mansion's main level and make use of the outdoor decks overlooking the gardens.

Before Music at the Vines Mansion kicks off Sunday, Gwinnett music lovers can see the Eric Culberson Blues Band, the opening act for the 2010 Moonlight and Music Concert Series in Lawrenceville, today. On Saturday, The Woody's will open the Mall of Georgia's summer concert series. Both shows are free to attend.
