The Blackwater Cafe at Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta has live jazz on the third Thursday of each month featuring The Charlie Perkinson Trio. Charlie is the host of the local NPR Jazz Radio Show on WVTF 89.1 FM. The Trio changes from time to time to include other local jazz musicians. The music is played at a comfortable level and is a good accompaniment to the great food and ambiance that the Blackwater Cafe has to offer. The evenings featuring the Trio are usually sold out so reservations are recommended.

The Blackwater Cafe also hosts a monthly Wine Dinner on the second Tuesday of each month September through May. These dinners have become so popular it is usually a sell out crowd a few months ahead of time. The evenings get great reviews for the food, wine, hospitality and the guest speakers. If you like great food paired with excellent, interesting wines and the company of other wine connoisseurs call and make a reservation. The local Wine Club also meets at the Blackwater Cafe on the third Tuesday of each month and many are regulars from the Wine Dinners and vice versa.
