2016 has been a roller coaster year for Small Wonder Experience as we have now become a steady outfit once again. For the first eight months of this nightmare year, we had almost no practice time and we were both involved in personal messes. Since September, we have felt a new injection of life blood enter our band’s bloodstream with new colleague act The Trembleweeds support us along with other great friends. We are once again guided (or Miss-Guided) back towards the light.

We had a great celebration of my 41st birthday this past Saturday night in addition to an earlier celebration of Teddy Quinn’s new 1:11 album! We love you always Ted Quinn and wish you a great recovery.

While LMA handles the Open Mic at the Joshua Tree Saloon for the remainder of 2016, Small Wonder Experience will be bringing you a grand experience again on December 31, 2016, supporting sister act Cynthia Manley! So watch us again as we become more pronounced in our town once again!!!!

New album coming 2017!!!

Small Wonder Experience had a great time performing with The TrembleWeeds, Dylan Fox and Nick Barnett as their backing rhythm section on their Big V Show September 17! On behalf of Leanka and myself, we thank you! Look forward to more fun!!!

OCTOBER 1, SATURDAY @ The Glass Outhouse, 29 Palms. 5:30 pm
NOVEMBER 7, MONDAY @ Pappy and Harriets, Pioneertown. 7PM (LMA Open Mic, please join us onstage too)
NOVEMBER 12, SATURDAY @ Joshua Tree Saloon, 7 PM with TEDDY QUINN and our Joint Birthday Party.

Keep checking our website for more announcements!!!!

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.
