Daily Staff Report
Vail CO, Colorado

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. ” For one spectacular night only, renowned legends of rock, pop and country will come together to perform for a once-in-a-lifetime, multi-genre All Star Jam. The event is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Hotel Scottsdale.

Invited artists include: Pat Travers, Boz Scaggs, Eddie Montgomery (Montgomery Gentry), Eric Martin (Mr. Big), Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), Paul Rodgers (Bad Company and Queen), Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Tim McGraw, and Toby Keith. Retired NFL star and Gridiron Great Kyle Turley will also perform live.

“The Super Jam” will feature celebrity host Mike Ditka and other champions from the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to retired NFL players. Dmytro’s association with the Gridiron Greats is a natural fit, as both work to improve the quality of life for people through their core values and guiding principles

“‘The Super Jam’ will be one of the most exciting events to take place during Super Bowl Week,” said Chris Burka, CEO of Dmytro Development, LLC. “Our team has assembled some of the biggest musical acts in one setting, and our sponsorship exhibits our commitment to making this a spectacular week for our community and the tens of thousands of guests we are about to host from around the world. This Super Bowl Eve extravaganza is going to be a can’t miss event.” Saturday’s all-star back band will include: Johnny Gunn of Eddie Money, Tommy Miller of The Allman Brothers Band,

Donny Baldwin of Jefferson Starship, Steve Salinas of Cold Blood and Dell Bruchette of the Greg Kihn Band. In addition, the stage will feature a special performance from #1 Las Vegas act and premier Scottsdale party band Zowie Bowie, all hosted by CMT’s Cowboy Troy.

“People are going to be blown away when they see who’s hitting the stage for this party,” said legendary rock guitarist Pat Travers. “It’s very rare for this type of talent to come together in one place on one night, and we can’t wait to take the stage and perform.”

For this one-night-only event, The Hotel Scottsdale, one of Arizona’s most unique boutique hotels with picturesque courtyards and lush gardens, will be transformed into a “Super Jam” party and concert stage, with VIP rooms, exclusive cabanas and party areas, making it the place to be on the eve of the big game. Having recently completed a major renovation process, the hotel now features a fresh Spanish Mediterranean theme with luxurious guest rooms, and a remodeled lounge, pool, and business and conference center.

Dmytro Development, LLC, Arizona’s #1 Green Developer, is proud to announce “The Super Jam,” a first- of-its-kind joining of the legends of music creating an exclusive, ticketed event scheduled for Saturday, February 2, 2008 at the Hotel Scottsdale.

Dmytro Development, LLC, a contemporary, functional and environmentally superior development firm is organizing “The Super Jam” in order to bring something special to the region as the community prepares to host the world. As stewards of the communities in which its employees work, Dmytro works to ensure all company projects are designed and built featuring the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design(TM) (LEED) sustainable rating system. Dmytro has adopted the LEED(TM) rating as a design requirement for all its commercial building projects. “We are proud and excited to bring the legends of rock together for the first time in Phoenix for the big game,” said Burka.

A premiere regional company, Dmytro will be one of the most active sponsors of events during the entire week leading up to the big game. “The Super Jam” will be the signature event for “Green Life,” a series of exciting, high profile affairs presented by Dmytro Development during the FBR Open and Super Bowl XLII promoting sustainability and environmentally responsible building practices in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

“‘The Super Jam’ will be the most high energy all-star party of all time,” commented two-time Grammy nominated performer Johnny Gunn. “Legends like this just don’t ever get a chance to get together and play. It’s really legends coming together for legends, and every one of us and our friends who are going to show up that night are thrilled that we were invited.”

“The Super Jam” will promote the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, a non- profit corporation that has been established to provide financial assistance and coordination of social services to retired players who are in dire need due to a variety of reasons including inadequate disability and/or pensions.

“While tickets still remain available, they are going fast,” said Burka. “The response has been great and this is going to be a sell-out.”
