Acker Musical Showcase, Prescott AZ

The Cool Water Band - a local group Dick performs with - had a great time at The Prescott Trading Co. on Acker night [Dec 9th]. We were street level on Whiskey Row in Prescott and had great audiences. Dick continues to pursue venues for performance in the Prescott area. The Cool Water Band is gaining recognition as one of the better groups on the area for range of material and vocal talents. As Dick says: "One of these days we hope to get paid what we think we're worth."

The Acker Foundation was established by a local Prescott family to promote supporting the art in the Prescott area. It hosts two events a year to raise money for its efforts. The monies are used to encourage/support local high school goups and individuals in their pursuit of the various arts. Dick makes every effort to support their efforts by participating in their events whenever we can.


Band Members: Tom Calvert, Cameron Calvert, Carl Brehmer, Dick Jonas -- Acker Dec 9 2011

2011 - Almost Gone





This year found us doing a lot of traveling. In April we headed northeast visiting friends a long the way. We stopped in Dayton, OH for the River Rats Reunion. They held most of the events at the National Museum of the Air Force at Wright Patterson. What a fantastic venue.              

Of course when we headed south we stopped at Macintire ANG to do a show for the Swamp Foxes. Dick has a tender spot for that group because they were his last active duty assignment. Check out "Swamp Fox" at the erosonic.com website if you want to hear more.

We returned home in June in time for Dick to accept the nomination to be President of the Northern Arizona Chapter of MOAA for 2012. He is looking forward to doing a good job for them for his term of 2 years.

In October we headed for San Antonio for the Head Hunters Reunion. The hospitality suite got really rowdy a couple of nights. "Twin Tailed Lightning" was a favorite of the crowd.

The crowd joins in




Later that month we were back in San Antonio for the MOAA conference to learn about how to be an officer and to meet other officers from around Arizona.


November took us to Luke AFB for the 2nd Tactics Conference. The Friday Night party was in a hanger this year and Dos Gringos joined in the fun.





Dick stays active in the Prescott area with The Cool Water Band. Today the band will be at Morimer's Farms at 3 PM as part of their fall festival. We will be playing at the Prescott Trading Co., on Whiskey Row [142 Montezuma], the evening of Dec. 9th -- 5:30 - 8:30 +/- as part of the annual holiday Acker event. On Sat., Dec. 10th the band will provide music for the Holiday Lunch of the NAC of MOAA. So you see with all of this we do stay busy. If you are in the area for any of these upcoming events please stop by & say hello.

How Time Flies

It has been almost a year since I last posted to this blog. My Bad!

Our Spring travels took us to Dayton, OH for the River Rats reunion with events at the National Museum of the USAF. Irv & Sally LeVine were with us and the guys gave a fantastic show at the Flight Suit Party.


After the reunion we headed to McEntire ANGB to do a show for the Swamp Foxes.


We also did shows for the Lake City, FL VA Hospital patients and the Senior Center in Nowata, OK. It was a long trip but we had good times visiting with friends. Our travels took us through San Antonio, TX and of course a get together with Charlie Huff and Toby Hughes at the O'Club was a must.


We hope to see more friends when we participate in the Tactics Conference at Luke AFB in November.
