Save Live Music: Help Purple Room Reopen!

I am reaching out on behalf of the Purple Room. For many of us, Live Music is not only an important touchstone, it is a necessity. It is the center around which we meet, where we share our deep emotions of joy and sorrow, as well as loss and connection with each other in a profound way.

The number of venues throughout the country has waned dramatically over the past year, with many classic clubs having closed forever. Clubs across the country have asked their friends and patrons for help. Now, after being closed for 13 months, the Purple Room is asking for yours.

The Purple Room is a Palm Springs institution. Originally opened in 1960, Michael Holmes had a vision to bring the glamour and excitement of the supper club back to Palm Springs. After extensive renovations and eight years of hard work, Michael was able to offer the very best in dining and entertainment in an intimate setting to our beautiful community.

Michael is a very independent person who believes hard work and dedication will reap its own rewards. Unfortunately, he is financially devastated and not sure how he can continue. 

The Purple Room employs 32 staff, 12 regular musicians and countless entertainers throughout the year.  We are in danger of losing this great community asset.

If possible, please help us keep Live Music at the Purple Room. Any amount will help!

I know Michael, his staff, and all the entertainers will appreciate your support and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
