Breweries from across Arizona will be providing casks to be served by gravity dispensing and hand pump beer engines. Your admission includes 12 four ounce tastes and a commemorative tasting glass.

Get nostalgic and leave your cares at home, because the memories of those great old days will fly unchecked as you relive a time when music refused to let you sit still. This is a live stage production that rolls out like a seamless radio show, weaving stories of life from the mid-'50s to the mid-'60s with tributes to rock legends like Elvis Presley, Bill Halley and his Comets, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, The Big Bopper, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Dion, Sam the Sham , and more. Prepare yourself for a return to the days of Pedal Pushers, Poodle Skirts, Saddle Shoes and Blue Suede shoes. Let your mind wander back to a time when 82% of the nation tuned in to the "Ed Sullivan Show" just to see a hip-gyrating phenomenon. With an acting background in Hollywood movies and TV, and as the multi-award winning anchor of 780 KAZM's morning show "The DUO" in Sedona, AZ, Tom Tayback brings seasoned presence to his performances. As a Screen Actors Guild member, Tom's acting highlights can be viewed at the Internet Movie Database site.
