Early Bird Din-Sho...$35.00 pp thru November 28, 2016

Milt's 22nd annual birthday party actually happened for the 1st time on December 17, 1993 @ the corner of Robert Road & Spouse Drive in Prescott Valley. For the next two decades, the two dates were combined to include the Prescott Jazz Society 'Silver Bell's' Christmas Show. The Christmas-Birthday Celebration is now a jazz society tradition and holiday highlight consistently presenting and promoting top shelf musicians and entertainers that offer 'once in a lifetime performances.' However more important for this December 2016, is the privilege and honor and fun in sharing the cheer by welcoming our 'Guest's of Honor'. It's always a great-great party and one memorable experience after another to be cherished that hopefully will also become a family tradition for most if not all.

This year you will absolutely enjoy our featured artist, vocalist * Don Cunningham (photo page) working out of Las Vegas, NV; Phoenix Diva
* Sherry Roberson, vocalist; * Royce Murray, one of the most outstanding Hammond B-3 Organist in AZ, and also the only one performing with the full
(Hammond B-3 w/Leslie Speakers) rig;
  Drummer/Percussionist * Leslie Daniels in from Los Angeles, CA. has been * Milt Cannon's
first call drummer for the past (3) years.

Come up to the T I S for a very meaningful social, and outstanding dinning prepared by Chef Paul Pound's Catering, a live band to move your feet to
and all of the delightful holiday cheers!

Beginning November, 1993
This studio lounge originally
located at Robert Rd. & Spouse Dr. in Prescott Valley, AZ 
was first known as the Cannon Academy of Performing Art. The academy staff of music teachers was developed for private study consisting of Patti Bell/vocals; Clare Willey/piano, 
(deceased); Mel Zelnick/drum, (deceased); Joel DiBartolo/bass-theory (deceased); Milt Cannon, saxophone. There were also clinics, master classes and (3) day 'Artist in Residence' programs with drummer Butch Miles and with the Ortega Family Ensemble, the New Mexico Mescalero Apache performers that were also featured in our 1994 Prescott College Concert in the 'Sam Hill Warehouse.' All of the Cannon Academy activities were enhanced by weekly Sunday living-room 'matinee' performances introducing various established professional performers to the Prescott Valley, AZ area beginning with Phoenix vocalist,
Sherry Roberson.
