Ok, it’s not jazz, but it sure is a lot of fun! Alfie Pettit aka Arial Trampway puts on one great party at the DRG Brnch at Hard Rock Hotel in Palm Springs. Sunday’s a fun day starting at 11:00 am. The show starts with a parade of the performers through ‘The Kitchen’ at the Hard Rock Hotel. All the staff members wear DRG Brnch t-shirts with a hilarious eye chart on the back.

We enjoyed the diverse crowd of gays and straights, media and management. Alfie Petit is the Creator, co-producer and star of the show.  Producer David Reese did a great job of putting together a snappy, fast paced show replete with costume changes.  Impersonators included Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, Jennifer Lopez, Adele, Megan Trainor and Amy Winehouse.  The $35 show includes your choice of bottomless bloody Marys, Bellini’s, or mimosas, along with your choice of brunch entree. I chose the Eggs Benedict, which was delicious and Karl had the roasted red pepper tomato bisque with a crunchy grilled cheese.

Kudos to the new GM, Juan Rivera, and the super-efficient F&B Director, Kristian Zambrana, from the International Hard Rock division (parent company), which recently took over. They are bringing some fresh ideas, great food and top notch management to the property.

Here’s some of the fun pictures we took at the event. It is every Sunday beginning at 11 am. Don’t miss this! It’s one of the ‘musts’ when you visit Palm Springs.
