The band is composed of Desert Mountain members that previously had a professional music career as studio or touring musicians.

Get your tickets to Rock and Roll Rescue and have the opportunity to view the spectacular sunsets of the valley and the beautiful golf course that recently hosted the Charles Schwab Golf Tournament.

Since 2010 Foothills Animal Rescue has found homes for over 703 cats and 743 dogs and that number is growing every day. Animals are rescued from the euthanasia list by FAR to be given the opportunity to come to our cage-free facility and find a loving forever home. In early 2010 Foothills Animal Rescue purchase a facility in North Scottsdale. Located at Pinnacle Peak and Scottsdale Road, the rescue provides spacious cat rooms, where cats are free to roam and safely play, and large dog suites. Many animals are also housed in foster homes. A Resale Boutique assisting in the support of the rescue is located in a separate building on the property.
Foothills Animal Rescue was founded in 1995. FAR is committed to compassionate and humane treatment of dogs and cats in need through rescue, shelter fostering and adoption within Maricopa County.
