It was the hottest party in the desert! A sizzling 120 in the shade and the music and art inside were even hotter!

An RSVP only crowd of almost 400 attended ‘The Art of Jazz’ at Rebecca Fine Art Gallery in Cathedral City.

The very first “420 Industry Private Party” was replete with music and art lovers.

This upscale event featured 420 vendors who gave samples of their products to dispensary owners, management and patients with a medical marijuana card.


Alex Santana opened with his flamenco style guitar. Slim Man and his band with Greg Vail gave us some cool jazz with Tateng Katindig on keys and Nate Scott on drums. Grammy award winning producer Ronnie King tickled the keys with singer Keisha D on vocals.

Musician guests included John Stanley King, Michael D’Angelo, Denny Pezzin’, Mikole Kaar, and more. Coachella Valley Weekly Publisher Tracy Dietlin and Phil Lacombe attended.
