A Jazzy weekend in Fountain HillsThe kickoff to our Jazzy weekend in Fountain Hills starts this evening with Jazz Under The Stars. The event takes place at our Sunridge Canyon Golf Club from 7-10 pm and is open to the public. This is a fundraiser for the Fountain Hills School music department sponsored by the Board Boosters. The Falcons High School Jazz Band and former alumni students will perform. Tickets are $30 per person and $50 per couple. The Sunridge Canyon Golf Club is located at 13100 N Sunridge Drive.

The second event takes place on Sunday in honor of the 15th anniversary of Jazz in the Hills. The Octagon Cafe is hosting this event starting at 4 in the afternoon and going till 7 pm. Jazz in the Hills was started some 15 years ago by Chuck Marohnic, at the time head of Jazz Studies at ASU, and by Rev. Ed Grant, now deceased and former Pastor of the United Methodist Church in Fountain Hills. Back then it was called “Inspirations Coffee House.” 15 years of popularity it is still going on as Jazz in the Hills.

Joe Garcia & Friends will open the evening. Percussionist Garcia will be accompanied by Armand Boatman on keyboard, Tom Williams on bass and Dom Moio.  Margo Reed, a jazz vocalist icon takes the stage for a great second set. The event is open to the public at no charge. Donations and gratuities are most appreciated by the musicians. The Octagon Cafe is located at 12645 N Saguaro Blvd in the Plaza Fountainside.

Join us in Fountain Hills this weekend and  enjoy some great music, great weather and great company. Hope to see you there.
