Full 10 Piece Band
Spotlighting female and male vocalists with a total of five who sing solo, and driven by a powerful rhythm section consisting of guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards, this band sounds great! Top it off by adding the dynamics of a full horn section (Tenor Sax, Bari Sax, Trumpet and Trombone) and you will be pleased at how fantastic the arrangements sound of Sinatra, Buble, Santana, Sister Sledge, the Eagles, Donna Summer, the Temptations and much more.
The 100 Club
The concept of the “100 Club” was born in Detroit in 1952, following the fatal shooting of a young Detroit officer. Moved by the situation, William M. Packer, who was the largest Pontiac Dealer in the nation and a friend of the police commissioner, wrote to 100 of his friends encouraging them to donate to a fund for the fallen officer. He received a 100 percent response rate. Packer and the commissioner met with the expectant widow, reviewed her finances and arranged to pay off the mortgage on their recently purchased home, pay all the bills, set up an education account for the yet unborn child and deposited $7,000 in the widow’s checking account.
In 1965, a young Phoenix officer was killed in the line-of-duty. Several acquaintances with knowledge of the Detroit 100 Club got together and started the Phoenix 100 Club. The Phoenix 100 Club has since expanded to become the 100 Club of Arizona which dedicates its time and resources to provide immediate financial assistance to families of public safety officers and firefighters who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty, and to provide resources to enhance their safety and welfare.
The 100 Club of Arizona is proud to support all police, correctional, probation and parole officers, firefighters, and federal agents who are serving and protecting the citizens of Arizona. This includes all county, tribal, state and federal levels.
