The Music of Motown

has been postponed to November 10th due to hospitalization of a performer.

 Was September 23rd, Now Friday November 10th, 7:00 pm


Joe Boune and Crystal Stark

Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, music became a part of life for Joe Bourne at an early age. He began his singing career in a church choir and with various street corner singing groups. Greatly inspired by such greats as Nat King Cole and Lou Rawls, Joe’s own singing style is rapidly becoming known to audiences around the globe.
Joe’s career grew in the USA from lead singer for a Top 40 rhythm and blues / jazz band, to the international status that he now enjoys, recording and releasing LPs and subsequently having hit singles from these LPs. After moving to Europe, Joe began performing for the American Military and supported acts in concert for such artists as The Stylistics, Natalie Cole, The Manhattans, The Pointer Sisters, and Dionne Warwick while they were on their European tour.

His engagements have included places such as Scandinavia, Australia, Aruba, Indonesia, Great Britain, Spain, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. Numerous television shows culminated in a Christmas TV special with the world renown Ray Charles which was filmed in Germany and televised in various markets throughout the world. Joe continues to expand his already extensive repertoire, delivering his special brand of entertainment for Radio and TV programs, gala evenings, concerts, dinner shows, film premieres, new product presentations, designer fashion shows, openings, conventions, cruise ship galas, and charity benefits.

Joe teams up with his female colleagues for some heart-warming duet performances complemented by various orchestra backings from combo to Big Band or symphony type orchestra.


When powerhouse vocalist Crystal Stark performs, she doesn’t just take the stage – she owns it.

The international performer and American Idol semi-finalist got her start singing in her home town of Tucson, Arizona. She auditioned for Season 5 of American Idol. Crystal made the top 44 and, although her Idol journey stopped there, she forged a close friendship with season runner-up Katharine McPhee and joined Katharine’s national tour as a back-up singer.

Her subsequent travels have taken her to venues throughout in the United States and abroad, and she has shared the stage with such talents as trumpeter Rick Braun, guitarist Matt Marshak. and beloved comedian Bob Newhart. While touring with Katharine McPhee, Crystal appeared on The Tonight Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Regis & Kelly, The Today Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, among others.

Today, Crystal enjoys a full performance calendar that reflects the diversity of her wide-ranging talents. In addition to fronting the Crystal Stark Band which plays at venues around Arizona and for corporate functions, she sings with 80s cover band 80s and Gentlemen, vocal trio Triple Threat, the Tucson Pops Orchestra, and Big Band Express, among others.

Her second studio album, “One Way,” was released on May 30, 2015 – “Crystal Stark Day” – as declared by City of Tucson mayor Jonathan Rothschild. The album features all original compositions by Crystal, and leans heavily on her soul/jazz roots for many of its songs.

When not on stage, Crystal is the Director of General Music, Band & Choir for Esmond Station K-8 school in Vail, Arizona.

Vail Laughs

Vail Laughs is based on one simple idea:
Clean comedy for a good price.
Entertainment standards have definitely shifted over the years. As the world keeps moving faster, it takes more energy to get our attention in the noise. Unfortunately, much of our entertainment uses shock value and other cheap antics to get it. It’s almost a celebration of being rude and insulting, bringing the audience down right along with the entertainers.
But life is funny enough without having to be vulgar!
Think about this:
We drive to the gym so we can walk on a treadmill. We carry these high tech devices in our pockets, the knowledge of all the world at our fingertips and we use them to send each other videos of screaming goats. Or the irony of reaching adulthood and discovering our parents actually had a point about naps.
What a strange bunch of creatures we are!
Our award winning comedians are as committed to this ideal as we are, bringing you quality entertainment month after month and leaving behind all the vulgarity and cheap antics.  Quite simply, it’s high quality entertainment you can bring your entire family to. The most important decision you have for the evening is whether to leave the kids or the babysitter at home.


Jason Love

One of Hollywood’s hottest comedians, Jason Love has appeared on Comedy Central, HBO, America’s Got Talent, and over 20 national TV broadcasts.

Jason works clean and incorporates music, making him a go-to choice for big corporate events. Says L.A. Weekly: “Jason Love is comedy that brings people together.” From the Hollywood Improv to Carolines on Broadway to the Comic Strip in Edmonton, Jason’s audience continues to grow. He has performed overseas for the troops and on the seas for cruise lines. Jason was a finalist at the Cabo Comedy Festival and at the World Series of Comedy in Vegas. Jason syndicates his cartoon Snapshots to millions in print, Internet, and mobile media. His one-liners are published by Readers Digest. You are going to love Jason!


Also appearing will be Kristopher Royer, recently married describes the difficulties of adjusting to living with the most wonderful woman in the world. Realities collide not over which came first, the chicken or the egg, but rather, which is best, such as cage free eggs or free range? As well, Organic or steroid filled chicken? Brutally honest and hysterical, Kristopher is one of the Valley’s hottest emerging stand-up comedians, and a recent finalist in the Arizona’s Funniest Comedian Contest. His clever, yet brutal honesty is in constant demand at every club in town. Brace yourself for a hilarious evening as he will also tackle tough topics that aren’t normally funny— but he will have you soaked in your seats with laughter.

Amber Frame

Amber Frame: What a charm this will be with Ambers’ take about how all advertising is based on fear, and that people on health food diets sound like they’re talking about drugs.  Everybody understands Amber’s sense of humor and will laugh with delight as she describes some of your friends to a T.

Born in Tucson but raised on the east coast, Amber grew up amongst the sprawling horse farms, strip mall diners, and angry sports fans of the Philadelphia area.  She spent her twenties as a starving artist in Boston before a desire to be closer to family not to mention Boston’s rising real estate prices… drove her back to her native desert lands in 2014.

Her self-deprecating comedy pokes fun at her own “hipster” sensibilities, the culture shock of an east-coaster living in Arizona, and the joys and pitfalls of starting over in your thirties.  Performing at the all-female showcase ‘Estrogen Hour’ at Laffs Comedy Café, and ‘Comedy at the Wench’ on Tucson’s 4th Avenue, has made Amber a household name (at least in her own house.)


Tickets will be sold at the door on the night of the show: Individuals $10, Families $30

For information call Richard at 879-3925.
