Charity and the JAMband + Jen Myzel
Our favorite place to play music for families in San Francisco is at the very end of Golden Gate Park, nestled between the forest and the ocean, at The Park Chalet.
This fabulous open-air restaurant has been generously opening its lawn to us for SIXTEEN summers now, enabling us to serve up handmade music and dance outside under the sunny (or foggy ;-) skies and on top of the grass and earth.
Our mission with the JAMband Family Festival is to provide a place for families to relax, connect and have fun together in the presence of wonderful all-ages music, delicious food and a beautiful outdoor environment.
For this show, I'm thrilled to welcome my good friend and fellow creatrix Jen Myzel to the stage for a few songs! Jen is a singer-songwriter, elementary school music teacher, author and activist in Oakland. Her music is soulful, connecting, heart-opening -- ritual music for joyful, intentional earth lovers! She'll serenade us with her newly birthed children's sing-a-long book, "Yellow Lotus Flower" (bit.ly/yellowlotus), about the courage it takes for a grieving young girl and a lotus seed to rise up from the muck (Joanna Macy has called it “a story for our times”).
So come on down and enjoy some live music in your backyard, created by people who love children, music and the earth!
