Cave Creek Museum seeks assistance in roof repair of historic bandstand/gazebo

The Cave Creek Museum is home to many one-of-a-kind pieces of history including a historic bandstand/gazebo outside of the main building. Now, the museum seeks public and private help to restore a bandstand/gazebo that is in desperate need of a new roof after many years of providing significant memories for Cave Creek citizens and guests.  

“This spring our dream team provided a great amount of work to the floor, paint, railings and steps of the historic bandstand/gazebo,” says Evelyn Johnson, executive director for the museum. “The only part that needs serious restoration is the roof which currently has wood shake tiles. We would like something that is not such a fire danger and still has the look of wood for preservation of its famous look. We also are concerned about the weight, so tile is not an option.”

Johnson says the goal is to complete the project for Cave Creek’s only museum by the end of August.

“The Cave Creek Museum is a 501c3 non-profit organization that has been in operation for 52 years,” says Johnson. “While we may be considered a small museum, we are mighty in the history that we share. We are unique in that we have archaeological and history collections on exhibit in addition to the mining campus as well as the Arizona Gold Mining Experience. We want to help preserve our community’s rich history.”

Johnson says the museum seeks a partner for the important project. Partners will have their company listed on the museum’s website as a business partner and company signage will be placed near the bandstand/gazebo in recognition of the tax-deductible donation of service and materials. 

Along with its extensive exhibits, Cave Creek Museum has the first Church of Cave Creek and the last remaining tubercular cabin in Arizona, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Johnson can be reached at 480-488-2764 or email [email protected].  

The 52-year-old Cave Creek Museum’s mission is to preserve the artifacts of the prehistory, history, culture and legacy of the Cave Creek Mining District and the Cave Creek/Carefree foothills area through education, research and interpretive exhibits. The Cave Creek Museum is located at 6140 E. Skyline Drive in Cave Creek, Ariz. Open October through May.

The museum can be reached at 480.488.2764 or Where History Comes Alive.

Kenny Loggins


Pre-Order the book now:

NEW YORK, NY – Mary Ann Naples, VP and Publisher of Hachette Books, announces the forthcoming publication of award-winning singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins’s memoir, STILL ALRIGHT. The book was acquired by Executive Editor Brant Rumble in a deal with Jud Laghi of The Jud Laghi Agency and Richard Abate of 3 Arts Entertainment and will publish on June 14, 2022.

In a remarkable career, Kenny Loggins has rocked stages worldwide, released twelve platinum albums, and landed hits all over the Billboard charts. His place in music history is marked by a unique gift for collaboration combined with the vision to evolve, adapt, and persevere in an industry that loves to eat its own.

Loggins served as a pivotal figure in the folk-rock movement of the early ’70s when he paired with former Buffalo Springfield member Jim Messina, recruited Stevie Nicks for the classic duet “Whenever I Call You ‘Friend,’” then pivoted to smooth rock in teaming up with Michael McDonald on their back-to-back Grammy-winning hits “What a Fool Believes” and “This Is It” (a seminal moment in the history of what would come to be known as Yacht Rock). In the ’80s, Loggins became the king of soundtracks with hit recordings for Caddyshack, Footloose, and Top Gun; and a bona fide global superstar singing alongside Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson on “We Are the World.”

In STILL ALRIGHT, Kenny Loggins gives fans a candid and entertaining perspective on his life and career as one of the most noteworthy musicians of the 1970s and ’80s. He provides an abundance of compelling, insightful, and terrifically amusing behind-the-scenes tales. Loggins draws readers back to the musical eras they’ve loved, as well as addressing the challenges and obstacles of his life and work—including two marriages that ended in divorce; a difficult but motivating relationship with the older brother for which “Danny’s Song” is named; struggles with his addiction to benzodiazepines; and the revelations of turning seventy and looking back at everything that has shaped his music—and coming to terms with his rock-star persona and his true self.

“Writing this book and piecing together the moments of my life has been a really eye-opening experience for me,” says Loggins. “It’s almost like therapy, to get to look at how honest I can be. How honest can I be about my motivations, my reactions to certain relationships and circumstances, what did I learn, and how did it affect my music.”

And Publisher Mary Ann Naples adds, “We’re thrilled by this opportunity to publish with a wonderful artist who has appealed to so many music fans across genres and generations, and who is ready to tell his story with wisdom, humor, and heart.”

Kenny Loggins will actively promote STILL ALRIGHT with a media tour and event appearances. The book will be published in hardcover, e-book, and an audio format by Hachette Audio on June 14, 2022 and is available for pre-order now.

Kenny Loggins emerged with Loggins & Messina, one of the bestselling musical duos of the 1970s, with their six releases between 1971 and 1976 (plus three live albums and four compilations), counting for 16 million units sold. Loggins has released 14 solo records since then with more than 25 million albums sold, charted five top-10 singles, and won two Grammy Awards for “What A Fool Believes” and “This Is it,” and received one Academy Award nomination for “Footloose.” Loggins’ song “Conviction of the Heart” was hailed as the “unofficial anthem of the environmental movement” by Vice President Al Gore, and his environmental television special for the Disney Channel, This Island Earth, won Emmy Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Writing and for the title track.

Loggins has also cut two live albums, two greatest-hits compilations, and two children’s records including Return to Pooh Corner, which remains the bestselling children’s album of the last two decades. He recently donated use of his single “The Great Adventure” to the San Diego Zoo for their Kids TV network which airs in children’s hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses around the world, supporting his belief that “every child should experience the healing power of music.”

Known as “The Soundtrack King,” Loggins has had his music featured in several iconic films including Footloose, Caddyshack, and Top Gun. Loggins has millions of followers and listeners across social and streaming platforms and continues to sell out live shows both domestically and internationally. 

Jason Turbow is the author of the bestselling The Baseball Codes: Beanballs, Sign Stealing and Bench-Clearing Brawls: The Unwritten Rules of America’s Pastime; Dynastic, Bombastic, Fantastic: Reggie, Rollie, Catfish, & Charlie Finley’s Swingin’ A’s; and They Bled Blue: Fernandomania, Strike-Season Mayhem, and The Weirdest Championship Baseball Had Ever Seen: The 1981 Los Angeles Dodgers. He has written for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and, among many publications.

Country Music Legend Stonewall Jackson

Fellow Singer/Songwriters and Friends Remember and Mourn The Loss of Country Music Legend Stonewall Jackson

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country music legend Stonewall Jackson passed away early Saturday at age 89 after a prolonged battle with vascular dementia. Some of Jackson’s hits included “Life To Go,” penned by the late, great George Jones, “Smoke Along the Track,” “B.J. the D.J.,” and “Waterloo,” which later became his signature song. Over his career, Stonewall landed 44 singles on the Billboard country chart. His 1971 Recorded Live at the Grand Ole Opry was the first “live” album ever recorded at Nashville’s ‘Mother Church of Country Music’, the Ryman Auditorium. The late Porter Wagoner would introduce Stonewall on his show by saying he came to the Opry “with a heart full of love and a sack full of songs.”

Wide Open Country’s Bobby Moore profiled Jackson just last year, saying “…he’s a representative of the days of smooth-voiced, sharp-dressed country singers who helped position what was once dismissed as “hillbilly” music as a commodity that would move uptown.”

Fellow artists mourn the loss of their friend and share fond memories of the great Stonewall Jackson:

“Stonewall’s breakout hit “Life To Go,” was written by George (Jones) and they both became members of the Grand Ole Opry in 1956. They held a special friendship over the years and although Stonewall was retired, he participated in the final George Jones No Show tribute event after he passed. I will always have a special place in my heart for Stonewall. May he Rest In Peace!” — Nancy Jones

“The Grand Ole Opry has always been a place of fellowship for all artists and I am saddened to hear of Stonewall’s passing. Although Stonewall and I never recorded or performed together outside of the Opry, his songs have had and always will have a lasting impact on country music. Stonewall will be missed.” — Lee Greenwood

“I first met Stonewall in the late ’50s right before I went into the Air Force while working with my brother Lefty. Stonewall was always a lot of fun to be around and I enjoyed hearing him sing all his hit songs on the package shows. It was always an honor to be on the same stage with him.” — David Frizzell

“Saddened to hear of the loss of one of the honky-tonk heroes of the ‘50s and ‘60s, Grand Ole Opry member STONEWALL JACKSON went home today. Rest easy sir.” — Joe Bonsall / The Oak Ridge Boys

“I had never met Stonewall, but I’ll say – as a favorite of country music and considered country music royalty, the image and style of Stonewall will always be honored and respected.” — Janie Fricke

“Stonewall was one of the sweetest men when coming to the Hee Haw set. Always loved it when he came to tape. He will be greatly missed.” — Lulu Roman

“Saddened to hear the news of the passing of fellow Grand Ole Opry Member “Stonewall Jackson. He was a real character. His style was reflected in everything he did. I most recently was driving around Nashville and noticed his tour bus parked. Oh, the stories that bus could tell. He made no apologies for who he was. I admired his grit, and how he stood up for what he believed in. My sincere condolences to his family. Rest In Peace.” — Rhonda Vincent

“So sad to hear of the great Stonewall Jackson’s passing. I had the pleasure of working some concerts with Stonewall when I was just starting out on my career. He always lit up each and every room he walked into. He was truly one of the great Legends and trailblazers of our industry. Gone but never forgotten!” — T.G. Sheppard

“Sorry to hear of the passing of Opry Member Stonewall Jackson. He was one of the pioneers of country music from the ’50s-’60s and he carried that music into the twenty-first century. Sending prayers to a former neighbor of mine and good ole boy, Mr. Stonewall.” — JD Shelburne

Legendary Guitarist Carlos Santana Releases “Whiter Shade of Pale” Featuring Steve Winwood

The third single off his star-studded new album, Blessings and Miracles, due out Oct. 15 on BMG

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 21, 2021) – Today, multi-Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Carlos Santana releases the third single off his star-studded, masterful new album, Blessings and Miracles (out via BMG on October 15), a collaboration with the legendary vocalist, guitarist, keyboardist, Grammy winner and BMI Icon Steve Winwood on the classic “Whiter Shade of Pale.”

Listen to “Whiter Shade of Pale” 

Pre-order Blessings and Miracles HERE.

Taking on a classic is sometimes risky, but Santana’s pairing with fellow legend Steve Winwood on the Procol Harum gem “A Whiter Shade of Pale” puts all fears to rest. It’s a resplendent, marvelously realized retelling, a nourishing hymn for the modern age, on which the two musical giants discover new pockets of beauty at every turn. As it was on the original, there’s an elegiac feel throughout, but there’s also a romantic element that never existed before. Winwood’s voice, a wondrously singular instrument, is stirring and deeply moving, and Santana channels Matthew Fisher’s original organ lines on guitar with reverence while putting his own unique stamp on the timeless melodies. With each passage, he lifts us higher and higher into bliss.

Santana recalls how he and Winwood were at a show in London’s Hyde Park, and he went up to him and suggested they record the song. “I said, ‘You and I have to do it, but we’re going to do it very sexy, like a Hare Krishna but with congas.’ I played the components in his ear, and he said, ‘I hear it, Carlos. You’re right.’ So that’s what we did – it’s Santana, Cuban, Puerto Rican in an African way. And man, you talk about sexy. Steve’s voice is so sexy and beautiful.”

Winwood says, “Carlos has been doing what I’ve been trying to do for the last fifty years, namely combining elements of rock, jazz, folk, and Latin Afro-Caribbean music. Carlos’ genius comes in large part from a wonderful combination of rock music with Latin-Cuban rhythms. I’ve played with Carlos on numerous occasions over the past fifty years and I’m very excited to be working with him again still.”

In addition to “Whiter Shade of Pale,” the album’s first single “Move,” featuring Rob Thomas and Zac Barnett from American Authors, and Santana’s collaboration “She’s Fire” with Diane Warren and G-Eazy is available now.

Blessings and Miracles is one of the most ambitious, inspired and magical albums of Santana’s storied career, on which the legendary guitarist aims higher than ever. “The title of this album comes from my belief that we’re born with heavenly powers that allow us to create blessings and miracles,” Santana says. “The world programs you to be unworthy of those gifts, but we have to utilize light, spirit and soul – they’re indestructible and immutable. Those are the three main elements on this album.”

In addition to the above talents, Blessings and Miracles sees Santana collaborating with a diverse host of brilliant artists, writers and producers including Chris Stapleton, Chick Corea, Rick Rubin, Corey Glover, Kirk Hammett, Ally Brookeand Narada Michael Walden, among others, on genre-bending, hook-filled knockout musical celebrations.

The record also features bravura performances from members of Santana’s touring band (including drummer Cindy Blackman Santana, singer Tommy Anthony, bassist Benny Rietveld, percussionist Karl Perazzo, and keyboardist David K. Matthews), as well as impeccable vocals and keyboards by the guitarist’s son, Salvador Santana, and stunning lead vocals by daughter, Stella Santana.

Santana and his band are on tour this September and October, with upcoming shows in Jacksonville, FL, Simpsonville, SC, Tuscaloosa, AL, Augusta, GA, Brandon, MS, Chattanooga, TN, Franklin, TN, Tulsa, OK, and Durant, OK. Santana will continue their multi-year residency at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas with upcoming dates from November 3 thru December 11.
