If you've been to a concert in Tucson in the past few years, there's a good chance it was a Stateside Presents show. Since 1995, the folks at Stateside have brought hundreds of national acts to Tucson and continue to put on several concerts per week at some of Tucson's best venues. Charlie Levy runs this vital part of Arizona's music scene, with Dan Hernandez of Optimist Club fame heading up the Tucson operation. They have helped put on such quintessential Tucson events as Festival en el Barrio Viejo and have held fundraisers for U.S. Reps. Gabrielle Giffords and Ron Barber, as well as get-out-the-vote concerts, volunteer fairs and varied other great events.
