What is there to do in Quartzsite, Arizona?

We have been asked this question many times; our answer is always the same – we are so busy there, we hardly have time to think!  If you love music, there are jams every day, bands at the Yacht Club and Beer Belly’s – 2 of our very favourite haunts.

We are into country music, the more the better.  At the Yacht Club, a country/western bar, a great band called “Hot Country” plays every Friday and SaIMG_5731turday night, Sunday night too when it’s really busy in January/February.  There is karaoke there Wednesday, Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons, under the competent direction of Donnie Miller, who also leads Hot Country.

When I first told my family I went to the Yacht Club in Quartzsite every weekend, they had visions of us all dressed up and doing ballroom dancing!  Believe me, nothing could be further from the truth.  We love our boys – Joe, LD and Donnie, and love wearing our cowboy boots and  jeans  to dance when they play! Millie McClatchy is a guest singer with Hot Country!  A wonderful lady of 84, who lives and breathes country music.

BEER BELLY’S is another of our favourite haunts; a fun-filled outdoor beer garden, close to Quartzsite’s famous RV Show held in January.  Chuck and Barb Oys are wonderful hosts and friends.  Carol is the world’s best bartender, so efficient, so friendly, with a great collection of funky hats and a collection of T shirts to complement them!  She also sings like an angel.

Joe Lonsdale and Duke Michaels are popular entertainers there; when they sing, the place is hopping!  During those lovely hot days of winter it’s wise to get there early or you’ll never find a seat!
