Dark Desert Highway (fka The Steagles) was formed as brothers Steve and Kevin Celi enlisted several music friends and son/nephew Stevie to be part of a band to celebrate Steve's 50th. The goal was to put on a performance to pay homage to their all time favorite group as well as to finally have a forum to showcase their singing abilities and pinpoint harmonies.  It was decided that the group should stay together for future gigs ...and after many band name iterations it was finally decided that it should be the opening lyrics to perhaps the Eagle’s most important song ..thus paving The Dark Desert Highway!

​The Dark Desert Highway Band (DDH) is proud to perform the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh and Don Henley!

Kevin Celi- lead vocals, percussion
Having formed the classic rock cover band Black Taxi while still in grade school, Kev tapped older brother Steve and lifelong friends Kevin and Alfie to join while he began a rather short career on drums, eventually settling for smooth baritone vocals like his idol Glenn Frey.

Steve J Celi III- lead vocals, rhythm guitar

Steve always considered himself a bit of a closet rock star, putting off his dream for decades while fashioning a nice, “safe” and successful career in music supervision for over 20 years.  He has been an Eagle-maniac since he was seven years old and has always dreamed of singing like his idol, Don Henley. As luck would have it, not only does he bear an uncanny resemblance to his favorite Eagle, he has a matching tone as well!

Jason Koehler-lead guitars
From the cornfields of Illinois, Jason arrived in L.A. in the late 80's, played guitar in several bands & engineered many studio projects while attending USC. Played lead guitar in the band "Last December" in the the late 90's thru the mid 2000's. With December, he recorded 4 albums, toured and was featured on Beverly Hills 90201, Party of Five, Dawson's Creek among many others. More recently, he has played with Delirium and Conjure One, and has since reconnected with fellow USC alum Kevin Celi in DDH.

Richard "Ratty" Tierney-bass

"OG" DDH member,"Ratty" ..has played Bass for many, many decades with the likes of The Monkees, Alice Cooper, Tony Kaye, Billy Sherwood, William Shatner and Fortune..He is definitely the life of the party!!

Danny Lorenze-drums/percussion
LA-based, Musician's Institute graduate Danny, has over 40 years of touring and studio experience..He's probably the nicest dude in the band!
