In the Fall of 2002 a like-minded group of individuals formed the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame (AMEHOF). 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.
The AMEHOF is an all Volunteer organization. No one is making money off the AMEHOF. We need the support of the public to continue this project. We are always looking for interested people who can volunteer some time on any of our Committees.
