Joshua Tree Chamber News & Member Events
The Joshua Tree Chamber of Commerce welcomed two new businesses to downtown Joshua Tree with ribbon cuttings on Saturday, Nov. 21.
Heavenly Beauty Salon, 61884 Twentynine Palms Highway, does “hair, hair and hair,” everything to love your locks from modern soft permanents to military cuts. At the center from left are business partners Janine Lewis and Karen Shobey, with stylist Danielle Hernandez. They are flanked by Janine’s husband Rhiney Lewis and chamber president Bill Vincent.
Across the street at 61877 Twentynine Palms Highway is Zannedelions. Most folks know Susan Henry, center, as the honkin’ sax player for the Joshua Tree Community Jazz Band; now fans can own her original jewelry and glass creations, on dazzling display in her boutique. Susan is joined by her trombone-playing husband, Jesse, left, and highway-hopping chamber president Bill Vincent.
Do you still have your Joshua Tree Star? The Stars Come Out in Joshua Tree was originated by the Joshua Tree Chamber in 2008 along with the help of Z1077FM.

Harrison House Music, Arts & Ecology is pleased to present Singer/Songwriter Myshkin on Friday, December 4th at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm in a program entitled SOLAR RETURN.
Those born on December 4th, under the sign of Sagittarius, are known for being assertive, restless and open. This show will celebrate and take inspiration from artists and activists whose solar return falls on this day.
Myshkin creates timeless songs of curiosity and depth, filmic, dark and rich in their restless explorations. An extraordinary singer with a voice both wild and refined, Myshkin’s career spans two decades of international award-winning writing, recording, performance, production and collaboration. Through eight solo albums she has grown a singular nuanced voice with accents of gypsy-torch, velvet-swing, raw-folk, punk-poetry, and electronic post-rock.
