On Thursday Nov 5th we are proud to bring in the sensation of the Bluegrass diva Jen Maurer, leader of Mo' Mojo band for an unusual solo intimate concert for your appreciation and delight.
Jen Maurer is a local standout always growing and satisfying her musical mind, taking us with her on a roller coaster ride of variety with Americana, Blues, Jazz, and Roots originals. She’s traveled the U.S. and the world with her Zydeco-based band, Mo’ Mojo. This is a rare solo performance showcasing the depth of her singular voice and songwriting. Just a girl and guitar and good music!

End of Season Drive-In-Concert along with Mo' Mojo Band
Your donation will make it happen ! We did it before...We want to do it one more time! This is a fundraiser for musicians that can not do a solo show, please click on the link to make your donation at
on the heels of a successful event in August 2020 we created this EXCITING fundraiser for a second multicultural free admission DRIVE-IN CONCERT with two AWESOME full bands featuring MOISES BORGES BRAZILIAN JAZZ and MO' MOJO BAND, with the audience in their cars, so we keep social distancing and abide by the COVID-19 government recommendations. Two multinational full bands will play from a stage area for one hour and a half each.
The goal of this project is to financially support the side musician, like a drummer or a bass player, the ones that can not do a live show by themselves. Main act musicians might have an easier time getting by during the Covid-19 time by playing a solo show, although a sideman will have a harder time surviving or playing alone, that's why I want to hire full bands, so the sideman can work and get paid.
Watch a promo video of the two bands on the link below.
