DMB’s approach to building great communities is grounded in our value of legacy. Creating an enhanced quality of life means creating authentic opportunities for social and civic engagement, including unique and meaningful opportunities for residents to come together.
Music provides an incredible opportunity to build connection. It brings people together to experience something special. It can shape the rhythm of our lives, creating a deep sense of community.
It’s why each of DMB’s communities has a unique musical tradition of their own.
Each spring, Verrado residents look forward to the Music on Main concert series. Friends and family gather on Sunday afternoon with blankets and nibbles to enjoy local jazz, world beat, R&B and calypso sounds.
The Music on Main concert series culminates with Verrado’s Saturday Night Block Party on Main Street, part of the community’s weekend-long Founder’s Day celebration. Neighbors, friends and friends of friends move and groove to big name concerts including B-52’s, Train, Blues Traveler, Beach Boys, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, The Romantics, Andy Grammar, Steven Page, Rick Springfield and Sugar Ray.
Eastmark offers East Valley residents a First Friday Concert series each spring and fall. These family friendly concerts at The Eastmark Great Park® include cover bands of all genres and food trucks of all specialties. The dancing and laughing is plentiful. Kids of all ages jam in the grass, frolic in the splash pad, and climb The Orange Monster®.
Marley Park has its own distinct concert series. The community’s Heritage Club serves as the stage for the spring and fall West Valley Arts Council Backyard Concert Series. Featuring nationally known artists and homegrown talent, the Friday evening series started in 2010 with a grant from The Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation.
Musical traditions are also part of Silverleaf’s annual calendar. Spring in the Desert is an intimate and elegant, members-only evening of gourmet food and musical entertainment under the stars. Concerts have included KC and the Sunshine Band, Gavin DeGraw and Mayer Hawthorne.
“Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions.”
