Jazz concert by Frankie and Tom Magnuson to benefit Buddhist Institute

Jazz musicians and London regulars Frankie and Tom Magnuson are back in Spokane, and the son-and-father music duo are performing Sunday at the Benefit Gala for Peace & Friendship in support of the Buddhist Institute of Universal Compassion. The Magnuson men are part of the contemporary London jazz scene – with Frankie Magnuson on keyboards and Tom Magnuson on drums – and their sound has been described as commandingly cool smooth jazz.

Spokane family relocates to globalize hotel business

Like many other Inland Northwest families, the Magnusons were planning to watch this morning’s wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William from their couch. But their couch is in London, just 10 minutes up the Thames River from the epicenter of the day’s pageantry at Westminster. The Magnusons – Tom, Melissa and son Frankie – moved to the United Kingdom last August to establish a foothold for Magnuson Hotels, which provides reservation services to independent hoteliers.

Magnusons’ online hotel reservation system has gone far, fast

Magnuson Hotels operates a reservation system for hotel owners not affiliated with a chain or franchise. Launched seven years ago in the Colbert home of Tom and Melissa Magnuson, the company has grown from a dozen properties to more than 1,400 customers. The company also has 190 Magnuson-branded properties in the United States. Last fall, headquarters was moved into a refurbished Carnegie library on East Mission Avenue. In January, an office was opened in London. The Magnusons plan to relocate there in August for at least one year. Q.Business must be good in Britain?
