2017 Live Music Schedule

We have confirmed the live music schedule for Desert Daze 2017, and what a line-up it is!  It just goes to show that Desert Daze is not a country music festival, nor a roots & blues festival, nor is it Fringe or a Palapalooza!  Desert Daze is a “MUSIC” festival, and we love all kinds! 

We have country rock (Johnny P Johnson); cool and funky world music (Barefoot Caravan, John Welsh Band, Coco Jafro); folk and bluegrass (Zonnis Band ); soulful ladies ( Nadine Davenport, Norine Braun,  Carolyn Mark); cowboy poets and storytellers (John Kidder); kick-ass classic rockers (Sabrina Weeks – Reflections of Bob Seger, Jenny and the Gents) and a couple of Australian ladies with a sound that is twice the size that they are (This Way North)

And there is no shortage of awesome homegrown talent on display! Returning this year are wonderful standout local performers such as Dixie and Paulette Rice (Flat Busted) ; Poul Bech, Dwayne Rourke, Brian Benner and Julia Cutting (Billanannee), John Kidder, Jennifer Ferguson (Jenny and the Gents) and possibly a few surprises!

No matter what kind of music you like, the 2017 Desert Daze Music Festival will rock your socks off! 

(*Note the later than usual start time on Friday afternoon. This is to allow more people to be able to arrive to enjoy the entire weekend!)
