Full Details

Jacks and Jills come get your kicks swinging to the sounds of the West Coast Cool Jazz Quartet direct from L.A. layin’ down the beat of the legendary Dave Brubeck mixed with jazz greats of the 1950s and ‘60s. All at one of the mostest pads in the desert, miles from squaresville, the Gaston Residence. This 5,000 sq. foot custom home was designed in 1974 by renowned architect John Walling to promote “The Palm Springs Lifestyle”. The architecturally significant home is located high in the Andreas Hills and has a perfectly preserved original interior. The property was purchased in 2018 by the cat’s pajamas of interior designers, Sean Gaston, known for his artful blend of vintage and modern furnishings. This sensational pad is a personal reflection of Sean’s style ranging from French Deco to Asian and even the 1980s. So don’t be a Clyde and get your tickets now before they are “Gone Man Gone “ 

We'll be serving Red Hot and Cool cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Suggested attire: Sophisticated Beatnik Hep.

"One thing I know about jazz kid, is that I don’t know what’s going to happen next, do you?" Bix Beiderbecke   

"Jazz washes away the dust of everyday life" Art Blakey  

"There is no such thing as a wrong note" Art Tatum
