Bullhead City has a desert climate, with a few inches of precipitation year-round. It is one of the United States's hottest cities during the summer, with an average July high of 109 degrees Fahrenheit degrees. The month with the most average precipitation is August, with 0.99 inch or 25 millimeters. Interestingly, Bullhead City is located on the always-flowing Colorado River, is cursed with high daily humidity, and yet has truly desert measures of precipitation. The town was originally known as "Hardyville", named after William Harrison Hardy, who worked as a postmaster, county supervisor and a member of the Territorial Legislature. When the railroad bypased the town, it quickly became a ghost town until the construction of the Davis Dam. The name "Bullhead City" is taken from "Bull Head's Rock", a rock formation along the Colorado River. During the days of riverboats, it was used as a navagation point. -- Source:

Lower home sales caused by higher rates

Makes sense. Even though rates are incredibly low, they’re significantly higher than last spring. It’s the delta. “Changes in fundamentals such as rising mortgage rates can account for much of the sluggishness in existing home sales over the past year,” Krainer said. Home resales have slowed sharply since the second half of 2013, declining in […]

But “the housing picture remains more worrisome, with existing home sales, new home sales, housing starts, and multifamily housing all experiencing year-over-year declines despite improving consumer attitudes,” says Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s chief economist. Fannie Mae press release.

Please forgive the confusion about the “Canadian Tutorial”

Sadly, the Canadian Tutorial is not, in fact, a tutorial on how to be a Canadian despite how incredibly valuable that would be to the world. And the Canadian Tutorial is not a tutorial about how to buy an Arizona home written in Canadian. It is, in fact, a “7-Step Tutorial for Canadians on How […]

Arizona Fruit & Vegetable Harvest Calendar

I got some emails requesting that I indeed take a photo of the old Arizona Harvest Calendar I have on my fridge but, even better, I found these online.

The Mesa City Band Meets the MAC!

Mark your calendars! Join us for the premier performance of The Mesa City Band at the Mesa Arts Center, Wednesday, March 9, 2011 at 7 p.m. The MAC is located at 1 East Main Street, at the SE corner of Main and Center St. We will be performing in the 550-seat Piper Repertory Theater, located just south of the Ikeda Theater (the green bldg in the campus map below). No tickets required, but a $5 donation is appreciated to help pay for the facility rental. Everyone welcome! Plenty of free parking nearby.

Message from MCB Director, Larry Baedke

As the director of the Mesa City Band, I am continually impressed with its members. As an educator I was always a believer in what music can do for a person's sense of self-worth. The feeling of accomplishment doesn't have to wait for a printout of final results -- it's immediate. This feeling elevates one's spirit and spills over into other non-related pursuits. This is evident in schools that have instrumental music programs.

After leaving instrumental programs in the public schools, many continue to enjoy music by performing in various adult ensembles. You could even say they have "unfinished business". This unfinished business comes in various forms; some are striving to increase their musicianship, while others simply enjoy the camaraderie of joining with others to create beautiful music.

It is my privilege and honor to direct a group of people who exemplify an enduring love for instrumental music. This year you will have an opportunity to hear them in a public performance at the Mesa Arts Center on March 9th, in the Piper Theater. Be sure to look for more information on our website as the time approaches!

Concert Favorites

Here are some fine examples of the concert literature we perform. Enjoy "Seagate Overture" by James Swearingen.

Seagate Overture

This is an excerpt from "Sedona" by Steven Reineke. A crowd pleaser!


Occasionally someone in the audience records one of our concerts. Here's a rough 2009 recording of MCB playing "Salute to American Jazz", arranged by Sammy Nestico. Great fun!

Salute to American Jazz

And what's a band concert without a little Sousa? We always end the evening with a rousing march. Guaranteed to put a spring in your step!

How You Can Help

The band is all-volunteer with the exception of the Director, Larry Baedke, who receives a small stipend for all the time and effort that he puts into the planning and preparation for our performances.

Members of the band include school music professionals (current or retired), former professional musicians, and people from all professions and walks of life who have been performing music for most of their lives.

The band operates on donations from the members, the sponsors of our concerts, and a small but growing number of kind-hearted individuals who wish to donate.

Donations support our continued ability to present concerts and add to the music library. We are a tax exempt, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, which means your donations to Mesa City Band are tax-deductible!

If you would like to donate, please send us a check along with your name and address to the address below and we will respond with a "Thank You" and a receipt. If you include your email address, we will email the receipt instead, saving postage, and you can print the receipt at your convenience.

About the Directors

Larry Baedke wore two hats in the Mesa City Band (Assistant Director and one of the band's top trumpet players) until April 2006 when he became the director. He had assisted Tom Kacere, our former director, since 1989. Mr. Baedke taught band in the Minnesota Public Schools from 1967 to 1973 and has been involved in Arizona music education since 1973. Larry retired after 32 years as band director and department chairman of the Poston Junior High music department in 2005.

Since coming to Arizona, he has been active in the state’s youth music program and has served as Solo and Ensemble Festival chairperson, clinician, adjudicator, and has conducted the Honor Band at Northern Arizona University’s Summer Music Camp. He also has been guest conductor at various junior high band festivals in the Phoenix area. An excellent trumpet player, he freelances and enjoys performing in Arizona's Official Historical Brass Band (a turn-of-the-century brass band) called Territorial Brass.

Like his predecessor, Larry is a native of Iowa. He is a graduate of Buena Vista College in Storm Lake, Iowa (now Buena Vista University). He has done graduate work at the University of Minnesota under Dr. Frank Bencriscutto as well as at Northern Arizona University and Arizona State University.

Larry and his wife Connie reside in Scottsdale. His two sons are both involved in music -- Sean, in the Philadelphia area, and Jason, in United States Air Force Band at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. He also has three step-children and sixteen grandchildren.

For 26 years we had the pleasure of being conducted by Tom Kacere, who retired as Director in 2006.


Chris Perry has been a member of the Mesa City Band since 2004. In 2011 he was made the Assistant Director.  Chris is an active musician in Mesa and Tempe:  Associate Conductor of the SilverRidge Pops Orchestra, Director of the Sunland Singers Choir, and Director of the St. Mark's Episcopal Church's Praise Band.

Aside from his directing roles, Chris also performs on a variety of instruments including guitar, piano and flute.  He is the pianist for Swing Memories Big Band, which performs in a variety of venues in Mesa and Apache Junction.

Chris graduated from ASU with a BM in Music Composition and Theory.  He continues to write and arrange music in a variety of styles for the various groups in which he is involved.  He also teaches private guitar and piano students from his home in Phoenix.

Why We Do What We Do

The members of the Mesa City Band are dedicated to keeping the history and musical legacy of the community band in America alive and well.

To that end, the band performs a wide variety of music that was written specifically for concert bands. From Sousa marches to show tunes, the band enjoys a mixture of historic and contemporary music carefully selected to keep our audiences of all ages entertained and informed.

The band always provides a commentary about each selection so that the audience can capture some of the significance of the setting in which the music was originally composed. Then, under the careful preparation of our Director, we present the music in the musical tradition for which it was created.
