The E Center Changes its Name

Maverik CenterLast week, there was news that The E Center has changed it’s name. The E Center will now be known as The Maverik Center. I am personally very excited about this. It has a great ring to it, even though The E Center name has been around longer than The Energy Solutions Arena, the new name will help keep them from being confused. The Maverik stores have done well in Utah and blend well with the Desert, Outdoors, Activity based atmosphere of the state. Continue reading

Concert: Muse

MuseThe concert for Muse was good. I didn’t stay for the entire concert, but was there for the first three songs as is customary and allowed by the band management. Muse came out standing on a 360 degree stage which had three columns for each member of the band to stand on. They were as high as the rear seating where they could be seen from anywhere in the venue. The arena was screaming, enjoying the music and they played very well.

United Concerts

Venue: USANA Amphitheater

Opportunity: Head/house photographer

Location: West Valley City, Utah

Time: March 2007 to present

World renowned as one of the best outdoor venues for music events. There is nothing better than being with your friends, outside in the summer air, listening to your favorite musicians and bands.

I have photographed dozens of distinct shows and events. Check out the portfolio to see more of the celebrities and events.

This venue is always inventing new opportunities and creative ways of being Green. One of the special opportunities is through carpooling. USANA Amphitheatre will reward you for carpooling. Check out this link for more information.

If you come with four or more people, you can park in the “green” lot where are fewer lines. Now who can argue with that. Planning and preparation goes a long way in savings and can make your event much more enjoyable.

The E Center mission statement is:

The “E” Center is dedicated to providing superior entertainment in a comfortable, enjoyable setting. We commit the talents of our management and staff to providing an unparalleled diversity of quality events and world-class service. Our patrons will always be our priority and value will always be our commitment.

The E-Center of West Valley City opened its doors to the Salt Lake Valley September 22, 1997. Designed by the world’s premiere arena architect, HOK, The E Center is the home of the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies.

The E-Center gained international acclaim and exposure as the host venue for the Ice Hockey Championships at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.

The E-Center has taken the term “state-of-the-art” to a new level, combining the modern amenities of a large arena with the service and intimacy of a small theater. Within the E-Center is a unique Theatre configuration which can accomodate audiences as small as 3,700, while a crowd of 12,000 can be just as comfortable in the main arena.
