|Dreaming Of LaQuinta|
Oil by Robert Nicosia
Well the winter music season is just about over and it's time to publish the 2012 "Coachella Valley Live Music Hall Of Fame." This year has been a wonderful season for live music, and I had the great pleasure to meet and hear the marvelous musicians listed below. I would like to personally thank all of these musicians for the hours of great music they provided me and all the music lovers in the Valley. I know there are other great musicians that I have probably missed and I apologize for any oversights. Please keep the music playing, and I look forward to another great season next winter!
I would like to give special recognition to two new music venues that excelled in their efforts to support live music in the Desert this past season.
The first is "The Indian Wells Resort" that brought Frank Di Salvo to us last year. This year they expanded their music program to 6 nights a week to the delight of all of us. I can't wait for next winter to return to this great hotel for more great food and music! For those readers that live in the Desert year-round, please continue to support The Indian Wells Resort so we can keep the live music playing.
The second is "Woody's Burgers & Beer" in Palm Springs. Woody's opened this past year and has booked live music 6 nights a week to sell out crowds. It used the formula of reasonably-priced good food and great music with no cover charge to become one of the hottest music spots in the Desert. Woody's will continue to have live music through the rest of the year, so anyone staying in the Desert, please continue to support this great live music gem!
