Whether they are performing at a Rec Centers’ event, at Lizard Acres Pub or at any other location in the community, we know many talented musicians live here in Sun City West, and we would like to share their music with the rest of the world.

The Recreation Centers of Sun City West invites the community to participate in Play Music on the Porch Day, an online collaboration where on the last Saturday of August, musical artists from all over the world share a video of themselves playing music from home.

Interested in participating? All you need to do is record yourself playing music from home and share that video with the Recreation Centers of Sun City West by emailing contests@suncitywest.com or messaging us through any of our social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). On Saturday, Aug. 27, we will share all the submissions we receive on our social media pages as part of Play Music on the Porch Day.

Submissions will be accepted until 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25. To learn more about Play Music on the Porch Day and view performances from past years’ events, please visit playmusicontheporchday.com.
