Enjoy our Desert Vibes

We have some amazing musicians in the desert!

Rags Rosenberg 
aka Rags and Bones

Listeners describe him as the bastard son of Leonard Cohen and John Prine, with a little Guy Clark and Bob Dylan thrown in for good measure: a perfect combination for this place of revelation we call the Mojave Desert. He hosts a monthly Songwriters in the Round at the Beatnik Lounge and performs a lunch set every Monday at the Joshua Tree Saloon.

Robbi Robb

Singer, guitarist and founder of Tribe After Tribe has been hailed by BillBoard magazine as being one of the pioneers of world rock, combining African rhythms with psychedelic rock. Robbi's psychedelic approach to guitar playing has been described as being like Ravi Shankar on guitar. Robbi has been living in the Mojave desert for close to 10 years. The Third Ear Experience is Robbi's dream child.



BELLSTARR is the brainchild of Aydra Jenson and Emvy Venti, two visionary artists who pioneered a new life in the high desert in August of 2016 from Los Angeles. The duo began attending regular open mics in the area, including the Joshua Tree Saloon and Pappy and Harriett's, making themselves regular fixtures in the community almost instantly.
