Hi Blues Fans!

Well for us here in Flagstaff it’s Spring Break, I should say for the students, I on the other hand am hard at work! Do any of you have Spring Break plans?

So I thought I would start out talking about the Spotify playlist I put together, HERE. I keep hearing that you don’t know who is coming to this year’s festival, well this is a free playlist and will get you acquainted with our artists! So take a listen and you just might fall in love with one or all of them!
Now, I wanted to thank our sponsors. I know I’ve shared that this festival is getting more expensive to put on and it really wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors, so they are going to get some love today!

Twin Arrows Resort and Casino, if you’ve been coming to blues for any amount of time, then you’re aware that Twin Arrows has been our VIP sponsor since we created a VIP area. The team at Twin Arrows is just incredible to work with. If you don’t have your hotel yet, then please consider booking with them! Thank you again Twin Arrows for being a continued and valued partner.

Findlay Toyota is Flagstaff’s local Toyota dealership, and has been a big part of the Flagstaff Community since they arrived. The team at Findlay are great to work with, so next time you’re in the market for a new car, go see them. And if you need to get your car serviced the team is incredible, that’s where I take my vehicles – and long before they were a sponsor.

Hensley Distributors are probably the most important part of our event – they bring the booze! Hensley, and before they bought out the local distributor, they have been a partner of ours since day one. I wouldn’t have it any other way. The team is just outstanding and I love working with them. Thank you again for the continued support.

Satchmo’s BBQ, is a Flagstaff BBQ joint and a favorite of everyone. Jamie and his team are funny and so kind. They know how to cook some amazing BBQ. For years Jamie and his team only fed our bands backstage, well this year along with feeding the bands, they will have a front row seat with the rest of our food vendors! You won’t want to miss this BBQ and be sure to pick up their famous rubs and spices while you’re at it. Thank you Jamie for always supporting this festival.

Suddenlink is a new sponsor this year! If you don’t know, Suddenlink is a telecommunications company. Suddenlink will be sponsoring the Kids Tent as well as the Wifi tent! Thank you for coming on board this year!

Stackhouse Wealth Strategies, if you couldn’t guess they are a financial planning company. A husband and wife team who are locals here in Flagstaff with three beautiful girls, I might be biased, they also happen to be my close friends. LONG before they sponsored this festival, I have been going to them to invest my money and I send everyone I know to them as well. So if you’re looking for a Financial Planner, or if you aren’t sure your current advisor is looking out for you, give them a call.

Aetna is also a new sponsor, yes the health insurance company. I couldn’t believe it myself! I’m excited to see how this partnership develops and to see what they have to offer all of you!

City of Flagstaff Airport, another new sponsor this year! The City recognized that some of you, fly here for this festival and they wanted to support it! So be sure to check out their Photo Booth – all FREE!

CD & E Engineering and Survey has been a long time partners, and mostly because they love the Blues! I want to thank Christine and her team for always supporting this event!

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is back as our 2 day wristband sponsor! If you’re looking for a home, or looking to sell yours, please look at using them. Such incredible community supporters and just a lot of fun to work with!

And finally, Peak Events… my business. I always felt weird having my logo on things, but as many people have pointed out to me, I need to be advertising myself as well. So, Peak Events is a local event planning company, yes we put on festivals but we also work with local non-profits to help them with annual fundraisers, we’ve helped coordinate conferences and we help you celebrate milestone birthdays and anniversaries and so much more.

WHEW – as you can see we have a list of incredible partners! I couldn’t even list them all, but you can see them all HERE. We still have some areas that need sponsorship, like the event program, this newsletter, lawn games, shade tents and so much more. Let me know if you want to get your business in front of THOUSANDS of people!

Have a great week!
