We know this Sunday November 6th we need to change our smoke detector batteries when we change our clocks back one hour for daylight savings It is very clear “smoke detectors save lives!”

The other change is temperatures. Though temps may be cooling down, things are going to heat up with hot air balloons and the Westin Resort Grooves Jazz concert November 18th at the beautiful Westin Resort in Rancho Mirage Ca.

This is the beginning of the smooth sax concerts by Michael Paulo and Apollo productions. Tickets are now on sale for the Grooves Jazz at the Westin Grooves Series or call 951-696-0184


Enjoy the sounds of Tris Imboden along with sax star Michael Paulo as they kick off the Grooves concert series. The Westin will have world class entertainment with the backdrop of hot air Balloons lit up in the night sky!

Why not stay the night, listen to great music and watch the hot air balloons take off from the resort at 6:30 a.m. the next morning and follow it up with a round of golf on the Pete Dye course.

There is not a better place than the Westin Resort to escape and relax with picture perfect post card views of the Westin Resort and the beautiful surrounding mountains!

Along with the music, there will be the Balloon Glow creating a stunning and beautiful backdrop to the concert.
