Join Oscar's for the Gand Band on Thursdays.
This dynamic husband and wife team bring their Chicago sound to the desert. Veteran bluesman Gary Gand handles the six strings, driving the band, channeling a bit of Eric Clapton, Freddie King and Jeff Beck rolled into one. Keyboardist Joan Gand, grooves on classic Hammond B-3 style organ and bluesy piano with inspiration from Booker T. Jones, Jimmy Smith, and Ramsey Lewis, all while her left hand is laying down the bass. Vocalist Dion Khan, winner of the Palm Springs Voice contest, adds his soulful energy, powerful voice, and sense of fun to the band.
