ARIZONA MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT HALL OF FAME (AMEHOF) INDUCTEES
(You may stop the slide show by moving your cursor over an image. Clicking on an image will take you to the page for that inductee.)
The Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame has been created to recognize and honor the contributions of musicians, entertainers, venues and individuals who have had a significant impact on the evolution and development of the musical and entertainment culture in the state of Arizona and to educate the public about these accomplishments.
In the Fall of 2002 a like-minded group of individuals formed The Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame. All non-profit incorporation papers were developed, a board was formed, officers elected and two deserving individuals were inducted into the newly formed Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame. Our first inductees were Wayne Newton on December 8, 2002 and Alice Cooper on December 19, 2002.
• To hold regular induction events to induct new inductees that are voted in.
• The AMEHOF Advisory Council makes the nominations and votes on inductions.The AMEHOF Board of Directors also makes nominations and votes in people through the “Heritage Vote” system.
• To continue to improve our “Hall” (located at Hayden and Thomas Rds. in Scottsdale) and make it a premiere concert venue and museum facility to display historical entertainment artifacts to educate the public about Arizona entertainment history
The success of the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame depends on the financial support of the public and the public’s desire to honor those who have contributed to the music and entertainment culture in Arizona.
We welcome all volunteers to help us with this project. Please see the Advisory Board page for information about our nomination process and voting procedures.
The next AMEHOF Event at “The HALL”!
Come Help support the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame for a great night of music

Boy Scout Supports the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame
Sam McAllen Jr., a Boy Scout with Troop 446 out of Scottsdale Arizona, chose the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame, AMEHOF, to be the beneficiary of his Eagle Scout Project. Sam approached the AMEHOF Board of Directors with his idea which was to construct two large custom display cases for the organization to display memorabilia and recognize the accomplishments of the organization’s inductees. The Board agreed and Sam began completing paperwork with the Boy Scouts of America and raising funds to support this endeavor.
On May 30, after a dozen volunteers donated over one hundred and eighty hours of labor, Sam McAllen and a team of volunteers delivered and donated two display cases to AMEHOF. The display cases can be viewed at The Hall (7919 E. Hayden Rd., Scottsdale, Arizona) a local entertainment venue that has partnered with AMEHOF to display inductee memorabilia and host AMEHOF benefit concerts and events.
The Board of Directors offered Sam the opportunity to choose an inductee whose memorabilia would be displayed in one of the display cases he constructed as his Eagle Scout Project. “After reviewing the list of persons already inducted into the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame I chose to honor Steven Spielberg because I have enjoyed his films and felt he needed to be recognized by having his own display case. I later learned that Mr. Spielberg is an Eagle Scout which confirmed that I made the right choice” said Sam.
Later this summer Sam will go before an Eagle Scout Board of Review that will evaluate his Eagle Scout Project and other Scouting accomplishments to determine if he has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest achievable rank in the Boy Scout Program. In addition to completing his Eagle Scout Project, Sam recently graduated from Saguaro High School (Scottsdale, Arizona) where he was Captain of the Track Team, performed in the school’s production of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and sang with the Saguaro High School Vocal Ensemble at Carnegie Hall (New York).
