Grab a Stetson and your autograph pad: The AZ Music & Entertainment Hall Of Fame is holding a benefit concert on September 6 at Handlebar J in Scottsdale, a great little honky-tonky type bar just north Shea and Scottsdale Roads.
Heard of the institution we lovingly know by it's overly-complex acronym, AZM&EHOF? Turns out it's inducted legends like Alice Cooper, Glen Campbell, Steven Spielberg, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt, Waylon Jennings, and Buck Owens, all of which spent at least some time in our state.
They're not planning another induction until fall 2010 (when, with any luck, someone else in Arizona will get appropriately famous -- otherwise it's you, Shawn Michaels) but in the meantime they're hoping to raise some cash with a concert featuring inductees like Jerry Riopelle, Jessi Colter, The Herndon Brothers, and about a dozen other acts. Doors open at 4 p.m. Show starts at 5 p.m. Suggested donation is $20.
