THE WILEY ONE
The Wiley One has played everything from local bars to huge festivals (to the top of a bio-diesel bus!), and at every occasion, the crowd goes wild for their bouncy-bluesy string style riffs and unique blend of acoustic, hip hop, reggae, and blues styles. This band has been performing since 2007, and with their strong roots in Arizona, they’re excited to play this inaugural Flavors of the West culinary festival.

What happens when a bunch of top doctors who happen to play instruments get together and jam? Well, when they’re as good as the members of Champagne Tap, they start playing real gigs and making a (musical) name for themselves. That’s exactly what the members of this band have done, and now you can tap your feet to their huge stock of rockin’ cover tunes – from ZZ Top to Queen and beyond.

WHAT IS FLAVORS OF THE WEST?
Flavors of the West is a culinary extravaganza that celebrates the flavors of the West Valley. Area chefs and their respected establishments will come together in Litchfield Park to show off their culinary masterpieces in a daytime event for neighborhood locals and Valley-wide foodies. Taking place along Old Litchfield Road, Flavors will mix a family-friendly atmosphere with great food, wine, entertainment, and outdoor activities.
But this event does much more than feed your appetite, it feeds your soul. Our goal is to raise $25,000 for Phoenix Children’s Hospital, who recently broke ground on a new facility in Avondale, AZ. The funds raised by Flavors will help build one room in the new building and offer naming rights to that room in honor of Scott Thomas Clarke, a young West Valley leader who left our lives too soon.
We’re lucky enough to live in an area where we have the best available care for our youth. Phoenix Children’s Hospital has provided hope, healing and the best healthcare for children and families since 1983. Today, Phoenix Children’s Hospital is the third largest children’s hospital in the country and provides pediatric specialty and sub-specialty inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency, and urgent care to children and families in Arizona and throughout the Southwest.
