Drive-In Concert on the Mesa
Date and Time: Every weekend at sunset
Location: the Mon Petit Mojave ranch, a 15-acre property located in the Yucca Mesa in Yucca Valley, California.
The show is also livestreamed from the ranch at facebook.com/jeremielevisamson
In these trying times, we can all use a little bit of music to lift our spirits and remember that this too shall pass.
We are following CDC, state, and federal guidelines in order to provide a musical experience to our local communities in the Mojave Desert.
The show must go on – with the necessary precautions of course. A Drive-In Concert is a safe way to practice social distancing while taking care of your mental and emotional health.
We are offering a FREE concert amongst the beautiful Joshua Trees, up in the Yucca Mesa.
We own 15 acres of beautiful, untouched land, and we’ll be providing a 1.5 hour show to anyone that needs a little fresh air.
Hosted by Jeremie Levi Samson, a violinist from Paris, France who has found his way to the Mojave. From Jazz festivals in Europe to tiny bars in the desert, you may have heard Jeremie perform his forte, Jazz Manouche. We invite all types of musical guests on the stage and are honored to be hosting some incredible talent.
We have a set of rules that must be followed for this to succeed:
In order to maintain a safe, fun environment, patrons agree by entering the Drive-in concerts at Mon Petit Mojave to abide by our rules of conduct stated below. Patrons who fail to comply with any of these conditions, at the discretion of management, forfeit their legal right to remain on the premises.
YOU MUST HAVE A CONFIRMED RSVP: Our drive-in concerts are private, invite-only events. When you RSVP/register, you are sending in a request to attend. It is not guaranteed due to our limited capacity. If you do not receive a confirmation email from our team, please do not show up to the venue as you will be denied entrance if you are not on our guest list.
STAY IN, ON, OR NEAR YOUR VEHICLE: You must stay in, on, or in the immediate perimeter of your vehicle at all times unless you are walking to the restroom, taking a photo, or to speak to a staff member. Maintain social distancing and avoid getting close to others.
MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES: If you are sitting outside your vehicle, walking to the restroom, etc you must wear a mask. Stay away from others. Respect social distancing boundaries. If you are inside your vehicle, masks are not required.
THE SPEED LIMIT is 5 MPH AT ALL TIMES. Please wait for the final song to exit the area and be mindful of other cars. Be watchful for small children, dogs or people on chairs at all times.
VEHICLE LIGHTS must remain off during the show – you can FLASH your lights as a sign of applause but do not leave them on. INTERIOR LIGHTS are a distraction to others (including pick up truck bed lights), please limit their usage.
When PARKING your vehicle: someone will be guiding you to the exact spot. Please do not set up your chairs to the side of your vehicle. Your camping chairs must be directly in front of your vehicle. When you set up ‘camp’ adjacent to your vehicle, you are taking up a parking space and getting too close to others for comfort. If you are driving a large vehicle, you will be in the back row. If you are driving a small vehicle, we will do our best to keep you in the first two rows. If you arrive after the show begins, no spot is guaranteed. Parking is mapped out before the show. If you have a problem with your parking spot, or if you feel as if someone is blocking your view, please note: parking a myriad of different sized cars around a small stage is not easy. This is a free concert, and we volunteer our time to make things run smoothly. You will not always have a clear view, especially if you are driving something other than a two seater. If a car is blocking your view, please talk to us first and we will do our best to shift you. Due to the nature of these events, we cannot always guarantee your view. If in doubt be polite and ask. A fire safety lane has to be maintained between the 2nd and third rows. Please set your parking break at all times!
If you will be WATCHING OUTSIDE OF VEHICLE. Place your blankets and chairs in front of the vehicle out of the traffic lane, while on blankets keep a watchful eye on moving traffic, do not leave children unattended on blanket.
