Last Saturday, we had a really fun gig playing as Minor Emergency. At the same time, many of the musicians from Desert Rock Academy also played and we joined them as well. Since all of us love to play music, playing for three hours was a treat, truly. This fundraiser was at Desert Rocks, an indoor rock climbing place. Their stage was at the top of the rock climbing walls on a platform. This meant bringing ALL of our equipment up a flight of stairs, setting up, playing for three hours and carrying it all down. Many people called it paying our dues. We are so grateful to all of the parents and others who helped muscle it all upstairs and then down. It was a great opportunity to help out a wonderful organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Desert. We ended the adventure with a band picnic. It was awesome to have some downtime together!

"Truly, it is something to witness... Young musicians, so passionate about music and delivering with the expertise of an adult. They make heads turn EVERY time I have seen them play and they do not disappoint. I have and will book them again and again for new audiences. They have really built a name for themselves and are in demand! Love, Love, Love!"
"It was a blast meeting and hanging out with you all last week! Not only is it VERY impressive to hear music that good come out of people so young, it’s also a lot of fun. The song selections were great, the vocals, the drums, the guitar solos, the keys - were all spot on!
On top of that, I kind of got the feeling that I may have been watching a performance that will allow me to say: “I saw them back when they were kids playing in Palm Springs!”
I’ll definitely keep you guys in mind for any future events and wish you the very best going forward. Don’t hesitate to let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
