BLUES GOES LATIN with The Gand Band featuring special guest San Diego Hall of Fame percussionist Monette Marino. They’ll be joined by desert favorites Dion Khan and Eve Holmes on vocals, Chris Elliot on trumpet, and Dwane Hathorn on drums.
Winner of the CV Independent’s Best Local Band for three years running, this dynamic husband and wife team bring their Chicago sound to the desert.
Veteran bluesman Gary Gand handles the six strings, driving the band, channeling a bit of Freddie King, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck rolled into one. Keyboardist Joan Gand grooves on classic Hammond B-3 style organ and blues piano with inspiration from Booker T, Ray Charles, and Otis Spann, all while her left hand is laying down the bass.
Throughout this series of 3 concerts, special guests will join the Gand Band including top notch performers from both Chicago and San Diego.
The Gand Band appears in the new film,”My Name is Lopez” – a documentary about 60s celebrity vocalist/actor Trini Lopez. Trini was a frequent guest performer until his death in 2020.
