Gypsy jazz guitar virtuoso John Jorgenson will perform in August with Chris Hillman (formerly of The Byrds) and the other original members of Desert Rose Band, the legendary Country music outfit.
Before that he will be on a rather curious bill playing for the military in the Middle East:
Called upon by another former colleague, drummer Charlie Morgan of Elton John's band, Jorgenson will also be joining the classic rock super group RPM for a USO tour this summer. From June 27th until July 8th, Jorgenson will perform for U.S. troops and Iraqi trainees in Iraq and Kuwait along with an extraordinary band and a front man line-up including singers from Orleans, Blue Oyster Cult, Kool and the Gang, Survivor and Santana.
