Pro Tip

"There is no public parking at Stern Grove, and street parking is limited. Avoid driving, and take the Muni M or K line to the St. Francis Circle Stop.

Check out more public transportation options here."

Pro Tip

"Parking and seating can be a pain to find so get there early and bring a blanket or something to sit on in case the ground is damp.

Totally worth it - and one of my favorite things to do in the summer."

Natalie Willis
Go the Extra Mile

"Turn your day into a picnic and bring some snacks and/or wine."

The E Family

For more than 50 years, percussionist Pete Escovedo has been breaking the barriers between smooth jazz, salsa, Latin jazz, and contemporary music.

Born in Pittsburg, CA in 1935, he began his musical journey at the age of sixteen, when he began playing the saxophone and then discovered percussion. After performing with various bands, in 1960 Pete and his brothers, Coke and Phil Escovedo, formed the Escovedo Brothers Latin Jazz band, performing around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Emmy and Grammy nominee Sheila Escovedo picked up the drumsticks and started making music at the precocious age of three, while watching her father, Pete Escovedo, rehearse. Sheila delivered her first solo performance to a live audience two years later and has since established herself as one of the most talented percussionist/drummers and performers in the world.
