The Small Wonder Experience will be accepting requests and auditions by appointment for a permanent bass player. Currently serving the area of Joshua Tree and Palm Springs. Must be willing to travel to Vegas, LA or San Diego, etc for out of town shows. Female or Trans-female encouraged to join and audition, though not a requirement. Contact Leslie Mariah Andrews at or message on Facebook.

Small Wonder Experience would like to remind you to thank your local law enforcement for all they do to keep you safe, despite a few wrong examples that have hit the news lately, which sadly led to five lives lost in Dallas, Texas this week. Don’t drink and drive, and if you are caught, it’s nothing personal, usually. Anyway, our band gives its love to all families involved, as well as those who were not treated right by police earlier. It’s a two way street and let’s understand that in today’s world.

All you need is love. And he brought it out through his prize performers, The Beatles. A long life deserves eternal rest. One of music’s hardest most perfected producers that had ever existed….will there be another? Bye-ee

It is of great sadness that 2016 started off with many great musical talents leaving us in the first three weeks alone. Most importantly, Natalie Cole, David Bowie and just in the last few days Glenn Frey. In December ’15, we lost Lemmy Kilmeister (Motorhead) and Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots) around the holiday season. In addition to these three great stars in January, a few lesser known sidesmen were lost too.

However, the Small Wonder Experience is still intact though only two of its founding members carrying on the Miss-Guided magic. All musicians past and present are still with us but we lost a few close friends and fans in 2015. Cat Livingston, Nzo (James) Nelson, Gavan Weiser (One Foot In The Grave) and Tim Kelly have crossed over to the other side and we think about them daily. And most of all, Reba (my dog) joined them too.

While we take five from a few shows this first part of the year, Lea Pea and myself are planning the next CD release and will hopefully have something out this year! Future appearances we will introduce new cover material plus all new originals! So as we reel in with big influential losses, we are hoping for new material to share with you all! Thank you all for a successful 2015 despite all challenges. May 2016 still make your hearts beat twice.

Bringing Love and Laughter Everywhere,
