Retro music by the Gand Band playing your favorite tunes from Dire Straits, Peter Gabriel, Tears for Fears, Eric Clapton and the Police. Put some gel on your locks, get out those shoulder pads, sip on a Sex on the Beach while jiggling you Rubik's Cube!

Dinner starts 7.30pm. Show at 9pm. Contest at 10pm $500 in prizes!

Weekends at the Purple Room feature the one and only Gand Band deftly bridging the gap between then and now playing their blend of retro blues, rock, soul, and funk from the 50s, 60s and beyond

IF YOU LIKE: Motown, 60s Psychedelic, Spy Music, Chicago Blues, Ultra Lounge, you will LOVE the Gand Band!  If Henry Mancini jammed with Cream, it might almost come close.
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 Eric Clapton, Freddie King and Jeff Beck rolled into one.

Keyboardist Joan Gand, grooves on classic Hammond B-3 style organ and bluesy piano with inspiration from Booker T. Jones, Jimmy Smith, and Ramsey Lewis, all while her left hand is laying down the bass.  Vocalist Tony Grandberry, a.k.a."Mr. Fabulous" hails from Philadelphia and adds his soulful energy, powerful voice, and sense of fun to the band. Renowned sax man John Bolivar adds his jaw-dropping virtuosity and style, and drummer Roger King provides the all-important groove that makes you move!

Throughout the season, special guests will join the Gand Band - watch for special shows as they are announced. Blues divas from Chicago will include Liz Mandeville and Shirley King. Musical icon and local resident Trini Lopez is a Gand Band fan, and joins the fun. Theme shows include Motown, Spy Music, Tiki Chic, Bossa Nova, and more  you'll never see the same show twice with the Gand Band!
