Members of the Jazz Mafia rehearse at Lennon Studios in San Francisco while preparing for their 12th Anniversary Show taking place tonight at the Fillmore. There are still tickets left, and this is not a show to miss, so clear your calendar and head over to what will surely be the best live music happening in the City tonight!

What an incredible free outdoor show this was! What’s not to like about so many talented local musicians coming together on such a beautiful day at such a fantastic venue? This is why I live in San Francisco, good times all around!

Jazz Mafia Symphony No. 2 Rehearsal at Stern Grove Before Sunday’s World Premiere

June 25, 2011


I snapped these photographs yesterday afternoon during the Jazz Mafia‘s Symphony No. 2 dress rehearsal at Stern Grove out in the Avenues of the Sunset District. It was a nice day in the Grove, and it was great to get a personal preview of what will be the world premiere this Sunday of The Emperor Norton Suite, celebrating the spirit of San Francisco’s favorite eccentric. Trust me when I say this show is not to be missed — it’s also outdoors and free too! But remember, Stern Grove gets crazy packed early in the day, and it can be cold and foggy, so get there early and bring something warm if you’re planning on coming!
