Whether you’re longing for the hits of the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, or ’90s, there’s something nostalgic for just about every music fan this week at the Chateau Ste. Michelle winery in Woodinville.

Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band play Wednesday, zooming through Beatles hits and more, including songs by Todd Rundgren, Toto, and Mr. Mister, whose members are part of the band. Thursday features a trio of female-fronted ’80s acts, The Go-Gos, Scandal, and The Motels, who each had multiple hits during the Reagan years. Opening the show are Naked Eyes, whose “Always Something There to Remind Me” remains one of the most enduring one-hit-wonder hits of any era. If the ’90s are more your thing, on Saturday, Goo Goo Dolls will stroll through their string of one-word-titled power ballads, like “Iris,” “Slide,” and “Name,” with Daughtry and Plain White T’s also appearing. Lyle Lovett also plays this week (Friday), though he’s less easily pegged to a specific decade since he never achieved the massive commercial success of the aforementioned acts. Instead, Lovett has built an audience slowly and steadily via his smart, quirky Americana—and his smart, quirky pompadour.
