We’ve got very special show for you in April! A rare performance by The Desert Rose Band. Joining Chris Hillman in this acoustic concert are Herb Pedersen on guitar, and John Jorgenson on guitar/mandolin.

Chris Hillman was one of the original members of The Byrds, who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991. Later bands included The Flying Burrito Brothers, Manasas with Stephen Stills, and the Souther-Hillman-Furay Band.

The Desert Rose Band was founded in 1985 and charted a number of hits as their music paid tribute to everything from bluegrass roots to country-rock.

This will be our first show at BC’s all-new Simonsen Performing Arts Center (indoor theater), while Studio A undergoes a major facelift! It’s visually stunning, with acoustics to match!

Plus, this will be the band’s only southern California appearance for the rest of this year, and they chose Bakersfield! How cool is THAT?

As always, we’re so thankful for your loyal support of Guitar Masters, as we bring the legendary sounds of The Desert Rose Band to Bakersfield College at the new Simonsen Performing Arts Center Indoor Theater.

As always, doors open at 6:30pm and the show starts at 7:30pm.


Guitar Masters is dedicated to bringing you the best of the best guitarists from around the globe in private settings located in Bakersfield, California.
