If you ever need to get hold of Al Page on a Saturday afternoon, forget about trying to dial up the dope DJ and club promoter. The ringtone probably will get lost in the sweet sounds of whatever funk and soul blend he's brewing up at that particular moment of Swim Social, held by the pool at The Saguaro Hotel, 4000 North Drinkwater Boulevard in Scottsdale. Page sets the soundtrack for the exotic aquatic event, dropping dollops of Motown, moombahton, reggae, and indie rock into the breezy air at the hotel.
Guest selectors also get into the mix every week -- like when DJ Switch stops by on Saturday, August 4, to perform starting at 2 p.m. Drink deals and specialty cocktails also will be available inside the Saguaro at both Old Town Whiskey and Distrito. The music runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., while the hotel's signature mermaids and synchronized swimmers immediately follow. Admission is $10. Call 480-308-1100. -- Benjamin Leatherman
