Ventura County's St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church
Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 at 7:00 PM
Janet and Ray Scherr Forum Theatre (Concerts)
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Chris Hillman is joined by his Desert Rose Bandmates John Jorgenson on guitar and mandolin, Herb Pedersen on guitar, and Bill Bryson on bass in a rare acoustic Southern California appearance.
Chris Hillman was a key figure in the development of country-rock, virtually defining the genre through his seminal work with the Byrds, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas and the Desert Rose Band.
The St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Camarillo serves all the communities of Ventura County and northern Los Angeles County. After 35 years of making its home in the Oxnard Air Force base chapel near the Camarillo airport, the community is raising funds to build a new church, a meeting hall and chapel on a 4-acre parcel near Santa Rosa and Woodcreek roads in Camarillo. www.saintdem.org
Brad Paisley – 2010 Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year said: "In high school, I saw the Desert Rose Band, and it changed my life."
The LA Times said: “In the opening number of their 90-minute set, guitarist Jorgenson coaxed riffs that magically segued from bluegrass to Beatles in the course of a single phrase while he, Hillman and Pedersen knocked off exquisite three-part harmonies almost without batting an eye.”
