    Event Details

    John Jorgenson is perhaps best known for his guitar work with bands such as the Desert Rose Band and The Hellecasters. However, Jorgenson is also proficient in the mandolin, mandocello, Dobro, pedal steel, piano, upright bass, clarinet, bassoon, and saxophone. He has earned a reputation as a world-class musician, as evidenced by his collaborations with Earl Scruggs, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bob Dylan and more. While a member of the Desert Rose Band, Jorgenson won the Academy of Country Music's "Guitarist of the Year" award two consecutive years. 

    The John Jorgenson Quintet creates a unique musical experience that equally enthralls the most discerning and the casual music fan. The group’s style has been called “Gypsy Jazz” but Jorgenson’s compositions draw in elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical, Rock and Greek music, so “21st Century World Music” is perhaps a more apt description. The current members playing along with John Jorgenson are Jason Anick (violin), Max O’Rourke (guitar), Simon Planting (bass), and Rick Reed (percussion).



    For seated events that take place at the Museum, the venue is divided into two seating areas: Premium and General. Premium Seating comprises the first several rows of seats for guests who wish to sit closer to the stage. General Seating completes the remaining available space. Seating capacity for the venue is limited to 150 guests.

    For seated events at the Museum, the seating format is open seating (first-come, first-served) within each designated seating area unless otherwise specified. Reserved seating is available as a benefit through the Museum's Listening & Visionary Track Membership programs.

    Will call check-in typically begins one hour before the start of an event. Seating begins roughly one half-hour before the event start time.

    No outside food or beverage is allowed in the Concert Venue or in the Museum Galleries.

    If you have any accessibility concerns or requirements, please contact our staff at (760) 304-5844 with seating requests or accommodation questions.

    Most (but not all) concert events will have a brief intermission. During this time, the Museum Galleries and Gift Shop will be open for guests to visit.

    The Museum does not maintain a wait list for sold out events, and we cannot guarantee that a seat will open up after an event has sold out. We recommend purchasing tickets well in advance to ensure you have a seat for a particular event. Subscribe to our eMail list to stay informed about upcoming concerts!

    All ticket sales are final. If you cannot use a ticket for an upcoming event, please consider donating your ticket back to the Museum of Making Music. Tickets may be transferred to another guest or donated back to the museum anytime up to 24 hours in advance of an event by calling (760) 304-5844. Tickets cannot be donated back to the museum after an event has already begun or has passed.

    Listening to sounds at an excessive volume over prolonged periods of time can damage hearing. Though the Museum attempts to maintain control over concert volume levels, there are instances when performances can achieve high volume levels. The Museum makes hearing protection available in the form of complimentary foam ear plugs. These can be obtained at any time upon request.

    We're sorry.
