It’s an interactive performance art piece, a semi-formal, retro prom themed Valentine’s dance at the Ace Hotel’s Commune and you are invited!!

Dive into your closets and dig up that old prom dress!!  It’s time to dress yourself up a bit, do your hair, slap on that red lipstick, wear tights, rock white hand gloves, and buy your man a bow tie!

The Coachella Valley Art Scene is

bringing back the ART of ROMANCE

with our 2nd Annual Doo Wop in the Desert party.

Palm Springs is already home to the retro… we are just bringing it back to life for a night of romance and nostalgia…

Doo Wop in the Desert Party Features:

Photo Booth

This year we will be having a Photo Booth brought  to you by Iggy Photography once again!

Only this time, each person in the photo will receive a free photo on the spot!  We will be printing your lovely prom pictures right in front of your eyes!!  The definitely didn’t make technology like this back in the day!

Here are some Photo Booth pictures from last year’s Doo Wop in the Desert:


DJ Alf Alpha

(who just recently got booked at Coachella Fest!)

Our DJ will be spinning nothing but the best of the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s all night long!!


Our LIVE house band will be covering some of the best Doo Wop music.  Last year we heard covers of The Temptations, Jackson 5, Chuck Berry and many more.  Looking forward to what they will bring to the table this year!

If you want to get an idea of what Evaro sounds like doing covers, make sure to check them out in a 50 sec walk through of Doo Wop in the Desert from last year!:

(sorry about not having a light on my camera)

Pretty sweet, riiiiiight?!?  I love how soulful they are.  And, although you can’t see it in the photos, they dress up super cute!!

Doo Wop Fashion/Costume

Worried that you Doo Wop outfit will cost you too much??  Hit up a Thrift Store!  Super cheap.  Check out a little video we made last year to inspire some Doo Wop looks:

Now, this isn’t a “Grease” themed party… however, they have great fashion tips for Doo Wop. Give it a look on Youtube.

Or, hit up your local Thrift Store!!  Check out a video we did last year at Revivals Thrift Store in Cathedral City:

Romantic Dinners!

Our good friends over at Global Kitchen Catering put together a special dinner for all Doo Wop in the Desert Party people, check out their menue and RSVP your seat now before they fill up!!

Keep an eye out in your local coffee shop for our Doo Wop in the Desert invitation!!!  We will have some available at the party to take home as well.
