For us Phoenicians, February brings warm days and pleasant nights – perfect for celebrating the month of love with our special someone or our friends and family. There are plenty of events to delight all of your senses this Valentine’s Day in Phoenix, however, we have decided to focus on the events that are the most pleasant to listen to.

Read below for our favorite activities to hear this February with your family or your special someone.

3. See Hamilton at ASU Gammage

Every few years or so, a Broadway production becomes an international sensation. Such is the case of Hamilton, a modern day telling of the life of Alexander Hamilton – founding father and Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War. The show combines jazz, blues, hip-hop, R&B, rap and broadway music to tell the fascinating story of this historic American figure. The show runs daily from February 6th to February 25th. Act fast, the show will sell out quickly, as it has sold out in cities and concert halls throughout the world.

4. Listen to some blues at the Rhythm Room

Cozy up with your loved one while rocking out to some of the best live blues and jazz the valley has to offer. The Rhythm Room is an intimate space dedicated to Jazz and Blues tunes, with live music each and every evening. On February 10th, you can spread the love even further, since all the proceeds from this event go directly to the HART fund. The HART fund assists families of people in the blues community who have suffered hardships such as severe illnesses or funeral costs. The doors open at 7pm.

5. Get your hearing tested at AZ Balance and Hearing Aids

Bear with us on this one. No one thinks of hearing assessments or hearing loss as a very romantic topic, however, many studies have connected treating hearing loss with hearing aids and improved romantic and familial relationships. Imagine the twinkle of romance in your loved one’s ear when they realize you can hear them when they whisper in your ear on the dance floor, or how much more fun communication will be when you don’t have to ask her to repeat herself so often? While not the typical Valentine’s sizzle, getting your hearing assessed could be the most romantic thing you do for your love this year.
