Smooth Jazz And Great Venues – The Wigwam

Beloved by generations, this Arizona landmark and Historic Hotel of America couples historic charm with a truly modern sense of adventure. Relax in the elegant comfort of 331 casitas and suites, but be sure to carve out time for our legendary golf, superb spa, four pools – including a new 25-foot tower with twisting water slides – distinctive cuisine and innovative, Arizona-inspired programming.

The Wigwam’s beginnings date back to 1918 when the resort was first built as a quaint gathering place for the Ohio-based executives of Goodyear Tire & Rubber who discovered the West Valley of Phoenix as a prime location to grow cotton for rubber production. Quickly growing in popularity as a warm weather escape, additional accommodations and amenities were added and in 1929 the Wigwam opened as a full-service resort. With accommodations for just 24 guests, the first guests of The Wigwam received a horse and a room key upon check-in.

In its 80-year history, The Wigwam has hosted some of the world’s most recognized public figures and sports legends and is considered a true landmark of the Southwest. Today, The Wigwam offers more than 400 acres of fun, including first-class amenities, unforgettable dining experiences and endless recreation.

The Wigwam has been a longtime supporter of Smooth Jazz in the valley. With Jerry Colaneglo at the helm, The Wigwam promises to reinstate itself as the ideal place to see your favorite Smooth Jazz Artists.

In 2012 the Wigwam is for the first time the venue of the Arizona Jazz Festival with smooth jazz artists like Mindi Abair,  Acoustic Alchemy, Peter White, Richard Elliot, Jeff Golub, Nick Colionne, Dave Koz, Marion Meadows, Cindy Bradley, Will Donato, Euge Groove, Jackiem Joyner, Brian Simpson, Bobby Caldwell, Eric Darius, Keiko Matsui, David Pack, Four 80 East and more.
