Since the City of Prescott acquired the Elks Opera House a few years ago, many attempts have been made to book interesting musicians into the venue. Some passionate fans of unique artists or musical styles have well, not lost their shirts, but certainly did not become well rewarded for taking the risk of ponying up seed money for the event.

A local businessman is bringing in legendary Hawaiian Slack Key Guitarist Led Ka'apana for the only Arizona stop on his current U.S. tour.
