Looking for an amazing bluegrass group? Look no further than Las Vegas favorites Out of the Desert. Bringing traditional bluegrass, gospel, celtic and newgrass material to a new level, this band is made up of talented players who truly love what they do. Performing over 100 shows a year and weekly at the Bluegrass Hangover Brunch (2014 USA Today Top 10 Fun Things to Do in Las Vegas) Out of the Desert is fun, polished and energetic. With 3 part vocals and award-winning instrumentalists, this group is simply one of the best in West.

Members:

Rick Seligman, Fiddle

Rick started playing the fiddle in 1976 mostly in fiddle contests around Southern California for a few years with The Rank Strangers, Rock Springs and Mohave Country. Rick moved to Las Vegas in 1995 and performed with Ernie Cockran and the New South, Las Vegas Blues Kings and did 3 years with Finnegans Wake playing Las Vegas and Atlantic City. In 2006 Rick won the Nevada state fiddle championship.

His experience is mostly from playing on the streets for tips which was done regularly and successfully along the West Coast - Redondo Beach, CA, Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, BC. Along the way he played with two bands of note - The Dynamic Logs and The Skyline Drifters, both based in Seattle. Mark joined Out of the Desert in 2008.

John was born in Las Vegas. He learned the guitar in junior high school and through the years he has performed in plays, musical theatre, and a few TV commercials. Around 1999 he was asked by friends to play guitar and do some three part vocals with them. That's when he met Rick Seligman, the fiddle player. They went on to form Out of the Desert in 2008.

"Out of the Desert" was an amazing band for our wedding reception. They kept our friends and family on the dance floor and entertained all night! They made learned a special song just for our wedding, that was performed perfectly. When our group was not ready to stop the party, they played an extra hour without hesitation :) I would highly recommend this band for any future functions!! Thank you for making our event special.

They were amazing musicians and the perfect entertainment for our party. They were easy to communicate with, on time, and totally professional. We liked them so much we invited them to stay and hang out after they finished playing. Great guys, great band. I can't wait until I can come up with a reason to hire them again.
