If you don’t bring a fire extinguisher with you tonight to the Freeman Stage at Bayside in Selbyville, you’ll eventually regret not doing so.
You’ll realize this after the gypsy-jazz band The Hot Club of San Francisco sets the stage ablaze in a sizzling performance.
Hot Club borrows the instrumentation of violin, bass, and guitars from the original Hot Club, while breathing new life into the music with innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions.
The band’s performance will be outdoors, so be sure to bring a chair to the event.

Car enthusiast Jim Woodland has a drive that really kicks into high gear during the summer.
That’s because this time of year is when Woodland and his colleagues host the annual Wheels and Wine fundraiser to benefit Debbie’s Fund. The fund is a Milford-based non-profit organization that raises money to support animals in a variety of ways, including funding animal shelters. Additionally, Debbie’s Fund assists pet owners with the cost of emergency operations for their pets when they can't afford it.
Wheels and Wine brings car aficionados from throughout the state and mid-Atlantic region to the Pizzadili Vineyard and Winery in Felton to showcase some of the best rides around. The 6th annual Wheels and Wine will be Sunday. More than 250 cars are expected to be featured, barring rain. The event is expected to draw 2,500 people.
They’ll have the opportunity to enjoy Pizzadili’s homemade wine and tour the winery.
Coverband Skinny Leg Pete will entertain with a repertoire that spans classic rock to blues jams. DJ Jen Tunis will also provide tunes.
Not a fan of cars? No problem. There will be more than 45 craft vendors, offering a variety of items.
Frankenreiter to delight in Dewey
WHAT Donavon Frankenreiter in concert with Makua Rothman
WHEN 9 p.m., Sunday
WHERE Bottle & Cork, 1807 Highway One, Coastal Highway, Dewey Beach
INFO Visit deweybeachlife.com or call 227-7272
Singer-songwriter and surfer Donavon Frankenreiter will hang 10 at the Bottle & Cork in Dewey Beach on Sunday.
Makua Rothman, another singer-songwriter and surfer, will be the show’s opener.
The Hawaii-based Frankenreiter dropped his fifth full-length album, “Start Livin,’” in 2012. The album, which is a follow-up to “Glow” (2010), is a nine-track selection of folk-infused songs that sweetly reflect the simplicity of their recording. With a smooth showcasing of Frankenreiter’s sugary vocals and exceptional guitar work, “Start Livin’” bears all the intimacy of an impromptu back-porch performance and the tenderness inside this audio love letter.
