When you’re putting on an outdoor summit and all you know is dirt, water, fresh air and camping, it pays to ask for assistance from someone who really knows the music industry. The kind of pros to help round out your outdoor event and create an awesome vibe throughout the weekend. This year we are very proud to say that Grammy nominated singer, songwriter Candace Devine came to our aid, lining up the main stage bands for September’s Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit. Candace’s production company is Further West Productions, a production company that pays it forward. Their mission is to create content and events that showcase local artists, as well as creatives around the globe. Her band is Ponderosa Grove.
Meanwhile, teamwork kicked in even more as Jett from Founding Fathers and the King Copper Band helped us line up our campground bands. Teamwork indeed!!

Shawnee Snaketail soon joined the group on drums, completing the band’s roster. Since then, Scandalous Hands continues to grow, debuting new material with each performance, and unleashing an explosive inventiveness in their covers of familiar classics.
Having started as a street musician and working his way up to world tours, Richardson has been celebrated as an inductee into Arizona’s Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame.
