It is the good fortune of southern Idahoans that critically acclaimed, Emmy-nominated musician Curtis Stigers ultimately decided to call his hometown of Boise home once again after many years spent living in New York, writing songs with Carole King, opening for Elton John and Prince, and appearing on David Letterman and The Tonight Show, all from the momentum of his hit debut album released in 1991.

Stigers and his then wife moved back to Boise in 2003 after the birth of their daughter, Ruby, and since then Stigers has continued to have a successful music career. Sun Valley residents will delight at Stigers and his band’s performance at the Argyros on Friday, Dec. 16 before Treasure Valley residents are given the hometown treatment with a concert at the Egyptian Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 17, followed by two nights of Stigers hosting the annual Xtreme Holiday Xtravaganza (also at the Egyptian) for two nights, Sunday and Monday, Dec. 18 and 19, to raise money for the Interfaith Sanctuary Homeless Shelter. Give yourself an early holiday gift and get tickets to see the musician who redefined contemporary jazz music. Around 20 other performers will join Stigers for the two fundraisers on Sunday and Monday, including: Bill Coffey, Jake Stigers, Minor Paradox, Steve Fulton, Eilen Jewell, Belinda Bowler, Andy Byron, Emily Tipton, Steve Baker and the Lonesome Jetboat Ramblers, Amuma Says No, and more.
