Come celebrate the incredible music of Jerry Riopelle on February 7. You won't want to miss this evening of unparalleled music!

Please join us for an evening celebrating the music of our friend and longtime Valley legend, Jerry Riopelle at the Talking Stick Resort Showroom on Friday, Feb 7th. Featuring the Jerry Riopelle Band (David Plenn, Llory McDonald, Paul Riopelle, Tara Austin, David Goodstein and Lloyd Moffitt) and some VERY special guests…including members of Gin Blossoms, Walt Richardson, Ray Herndon, Francine Reed, Michael Nitro, Lawrence Zubia, Chuck E. Baby and more! This will be an unequaled night of music performed by the band who played with him for years along with great artists who loved Jerry as well.

Jerry was booked for what were to be his final sold out concerts at Talking Stick Resort in December, 2018 but passed away on Christmas Eve. This was a very sad time for his family, friends and legions of fans. The band did a show featuring Jerry’s music earlier this year in Los Angeles. Everyone had such a fantastic time on stage and in the audience that they decided to do it again at Talking Stick!

If I could, I would build an Arizona musical Mount Rushmore. The monument would have Marty Robbins and Alice Cooper as bookends. Inside would be Linda Ronstadt and Stevie Nicks. Front and center, though, would be Jerry Riopelle… (Dan Engler - Verde Independent 2018)

That sentiment, along with the ubiquitous “Soundtrack of my youth” “Arizona’s favorite adopted son” “Arizona music legend” are firm evidence of the grip and lasting impact Jerry Riopelle has on Arizona music and pop culture over the years.
