Best Things to Hear in Phoenix This Valentine’s Day

In Community, Hearing Health, News by Bary E. Williams Au.D.

For some of us, Valentine’s Day is a truly special time to spend with the love of our lives. For others, it’s just a kooky day bursting with chocolate candies and pink hearts galore. No matter how you view Valentine’s Day, it is definitely a good excuse to get out and have some fun with the friends, family or partner you love. In Phoenix, there are plenty of events that are packed with love and amusement to choose from this Valentine’s Day, although we are particularly excited about the best things to hear this year. We are, of course, in the business of better hearing.

Read below for a list of our favorite things to hear during Valentine’s Day 2018.

      • Art Leboe Valentine’s Super Love Jam – Talking Stick Resort – February 16th, 7:30pm.
        The Talking Stick Resort is hosting an “old school” love jam concert featuring some of your favorite artists from the 70s and 80s. Amongst the impressive lineup will be The Delfonics, Blue Magic, original members of The Jets, and Evelyn “Champagne” King. Relax with your love or a few friends and listen to some great classics from the “good ol’ days”! Tickets are on sale now through the Talking Stick Resort box office. For more information visit:

      • Carnival of Illusion – Mesa, Tempe & Phoenix Arts Centers – February 10th – May 13th, performance times vary.
        Carnival of Illusion is a fun-filled evening of magic, music and travel-themed trickeries. This theatre show is Vaudeville-inspired and includes storylines, humor, and lots of great illusions – sure to leave you and your love wondering, “how did they do that?” The boutique and intimate nature of the theatre allows for great audience participation, however, the compact space also means shows sell out rather quickly, so get your tickets ASAP. Extra bonus: if given at least 4 weeks notice, an ASL interpreted performance can be arranged. For more information visit:
