Desert Dragon is an Award-winning band from Los Angeles, California formed by guitarist Greg Patnode. The Band recently released ‘DESOLATION’ featuring Billboard charting singles “Darkness Shines” and “Miles Away” produced by the legendary Ron Nevison (Producer/Engineer for Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, The Faces, Heart, Lynyrd Skynyrd, et al).


The band is shifting its focus from Blues to Hard Rock and Psychedelia. This shift has given the band new momentum and they will be coming out with several new songs in the next year. They have even revamped some songs from their first album (most notably “Take it Easy Now”, “Texas Border”, “Life’s Tough” and “Desert Horizons” ) to give them more hard rock content. As a result the band is getting more attention at their shows with many requests to repeat. They recently played ‘The Roxy’, ‘House of Blues’, has an invite to play at the ‘Hard Rock Cafe’. space
