The Del Mar Foundation presents concert featuring The Desert Rose Band

The Desert Rose Band

The Desert Rose Band, featuring The Byrds’ founding member Chris Hillman, will appear in a special all-acoustic reunion performance at the Del Mar Powerhouse on Friday, Nov. 2, at 7:30 p.m.

Formed in 1985, the Desert Rose Band immediately established itself as a group fiercely loyal to country music but not afraid to make it their own with a fusion of bluegrass and California country rock. The founding members who will be joining Hillman for this performance are bluegrass icon Herb Pedersen (vocals, guitar, banjo); John Jorgenson, who has appeared twice at the Del Mar Powerhouse with his Django-style jazz group, the John Jorgenson Quintet; and bassist Bill Bryson (Laurel Canyon Ramblers).

The Academy of Country Music named them Touring Band of the Year for three consecutive years (1988-1990), and they received two Grammy nominations and three nominations from the Country Music Association.

The band’s sterling musicianship and stellar harmonies promise to deliver a not-to-be-missed reunion performance, with an outstanding mix of Desert Rose Band hits, Byrds classics like “Turn! Turn! Turn!” and “Eight Miles High,” plus a few tributes to the classic Bakersfield sound that originally inspired and influenced them.

Tickets are $30 (general admission) and $50 (patron/reserved seating). For more information or to purchase tickets, visit: http://delmarfoundation.org/desertroseband
