             The Mohave Beach Band    


   The Mohave Beach Band is a musical group from the Inland Empire of southern California, founded in 2015. We perform our own compositions with a few cover songs thrown in from time to time. We attribute our success to our ability to create our own style of music and our onstage chemistry. Our formula is loosely based on the Colorado River vacation experience, California destinations and stories about love and relationships. We are “The California Sound!”


   We are essentially a light rock band with country and jazz influences, but we can rock it up or jazz it up a bit if that is what is called for. We often make set adjustments to suit our clients’ needs and audience expectations. I am often asked if we are danceable and family friendly and the answer is yes to both. You can bring your kids and your grandparents to see our show. It seems that we are always invited back!


   We began by testing our concept by playing small venues in the Pomona Valley and Claremont College area which over time grew to include premiere venues such as The Canyon Clubs. We were very pleased, that after our first show at the Canyon Club Montclair performance as an opening act, to receive an email from Eventbrite thanking us and inviting us to come back. We now have begun to expand our performance area to include the Temecula Wine country and Orange County.
