This Friday, November 16, 2018, at the award winning La Quinta Brewing Co. in Palm Desert, several Coachella Valley artists will be performing to help out one of their own, Arek Religa, a local working musician who has had to take a break from performing due to a non-life threatening illness. Arek assured us he will be okay and will return to performing once he is able to regain his full strength in approximately two months. These unfortunate circumstances provided the desert music community an opportunity to help Arek and his family through this rough patch. Performing LIVE in the LQ Brewing Co. warehouse will be: COURTNEY CHAMBERS! Marc Diaz and Daniel Torres of Desert Reggae maestros MOZAIQ! Chelsea Sugarbritches and Martin Barrera of 5th TOWN! Marc Gentry, Charlie Ellis and Jeff Bowman of MIGHTY JACK with special guest bassist, Martin Barrera! Benny Cancino, Jr., Noe Gutierrez, Gentry and Barrera of APHRODISIAC JACKET with special guest bassist Jerry Bryson (BLACKWATER, JOE’S BOYZ)! Frank Michel, Shawn Fisher and James Hollis Eaton of HOVER! Mario Quintero of HIGHER HEIGHTS and CRUCIAL CULTURE! Admission is FREE and this a FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT! ALL AGES ARE WELCOME! Each artist is donating their time and talent and request that you consider and make a donation to Arek and his family. Donation boxes will be available at the venue. CRAFT TACOS LIBRE will be cooking up some great food to pair with some of the best craft beer in Southern California. Sound/backline provided by THE SOUND HUB REHEARSAL STUDIO and artist backdrop by BLOOM. EVERYONE is invited to come out and enjoy a beautiful night of humanitarianism!


Live musical performances from members of Mozaiq, Courtney Chambers, Mighty Jack, 5th Town, Aphrodisiac Jacket, Crucial Culture and more!
