Come join us with a picnic basket and blankets in Shepherd Canyon Park, under the California oaks in the golden evening sun, for a unique jazzy set with the Jazz Mafia Strings!

The exact location can be a bit hard to find, but our outdoor wooded concert hall is worth the effort of coming down the stairs from Escher Dr or hiking up from the parking lot. Either way, there will be guides on either side to point you in the right direction, and parking on either end.

Hi everyone, the site is accessible from both parts of the park if you follow the main path, but closer to the Escher Dr. side

Here’s a pin of where we will be. Park as close as you can get. :)
