Yes, we danced! What a great time we all had at Ruth Ruiz’s (RR Class Act Entertainment) ‘Elements of Jazz and Soul’ party at Miramonte Hotel in Indian Wells last Thursday night. The music was amazing! Darryl Fitzgerald and his band with special guest smooth jazz guitarist Blake Aaron rocked the house! Darryl’s amazing vocals and mix of originals and cover tunes with his 6 piece band raised the bar on dance parties for the desert. There was a selection of drinks at reasonable prices and a big dance floor. The ladies came out in style and we all had a great time.

Daniel Ryan took lots of great pictures as you can see. Enjoy the Papparazzi!

Don’t miss my big BMW of Palm Springs Smooth Jazzfest next Monday night 5-10 pm with 5 National acts including Greg Adams and East Bay Soul, Joe Baldino and 10 piece band, Blues sensation Deanna Bogart, Slim Man and band, and Chase Huna.
