Galen First Fridays with performance by Derek Jordan Gregg
As part of First Weekend Palm Desert, this January's Galen First Friday presents a live performance by Derek Jordan Gregg. Raised in a small town in southern Oregon, he devoted his life to music at a very early age. Fed up with the daily grind, Derek quit his job and moved to Southern California at 21 to pursue a professional music career. DJG now blends old and new (Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, John Mayer, & Caleb Followill) into a sound all his own. His gut-wrenching lyrics hint at a life lived more painfully than one his age should and masquerade behind hooky melodies. Derek's songs draw in listeners of all walks of life.
Galen First Fridays are generously sponsored by Helene V. Galen and Cuistot Restaurant.
