Jeff Golub, Mindi Abair And Euge Groove Rock the Desert Night Air

Jeff Golub
If you felt the earth move near the Rancho Las Palmas Resort in Palm Desert last Saturday, April 2, don't worry.  It was not an earthquake. It was the sounds coming from the 2011 Desert Lexus Music Festival.  There were three major talents shaking the ground: Euge Groove, Mindi Abair and Jeff Golub. Jim "Fitz" Fitzgerald introduced the trio and then for the next two hours they took the house down.  Euge Groove made his tenor sing with more notes and range than I thought were possible on a saxophone.  Then the great Mindi Abair brought the crowd to a fever pitch with her alto sounds and moves.  Mindi also sang a couple of her classic tunes that delighted the audience.  Next up on the program was some terrific guitar playing licks by Jeff Golub.  Jeff was at his best and the audience couldn't get enough of his wonderful guitar sounds.  The trio played individually and then together that drove many in the audience into a dancing frenzy in front of the stage.  The setting under the stars in great desert weather made the event almost surreal.  It doesn't get any better than this.
