Kelley James-Living Room Live
Sometimes the best things are free, and in this case, live music at the W Scottsdale could fall into that category. At this time of year, with gifts and making traveling arrangements, music to relax to with the people we care most about is exactly what we need.
In addition to going to the concert, guests can check out the W and experience all the great things the resort has to offer, especially fantastic rooms. Maybe a stay-cation is in order to prepare for the rush of events that come at this time of year up until we reach the New Year.
