This unique English born, US-based singer/songwriter creates compelling songs that are full of cinematic melodies.Mr. Page’s songs capture the innocence, grace, and joy of the early 20th century. His wistful longing for a bygone musical era borders on fantasy, but his beautifully crafted songs – and the sincerity and passion with which he performs them – draw the listener into his seductive world. Gregory’s star shines brightly outside of his adopted country as he tours frequently through Europe and Australia. Click here to learn more about Gregory Page.»
The Water Conservation Garden has nearly six acres of displays that showcase water conservation through a series of beautiful themed gardens, such as a native plant garden and a vegetable garden, as well as how-to displays such as mulch and irrigation exhibits. Opened in 1999, the six-acre Water Conservation Garden is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting water conservation in the southern California landscape through educational exhibits and programs that inspire the public. How-to workshops are offered regularly, docent-led tours are offered Saturdays at 10am, and self-guided tours may be enjoyed 9am-4pm, daily. Admission and parking is free.

Enjoy a stroll around the charming and whimsical Garden before you arrive at the dramatic outdoor amphitheater. Mr. Gregory Page captures the audience with his engaging lyrics and soothing melodies reminiscent of the 1920’s sweet jazz era and beyond. Songs, stories and poetry are weaved together to make this a memorable experience. Mr. Page will be accompanied by Sky Ladd on keyboards and Josh Hermsmeier on drums.

Louis Nouws in a review writes “Gregory Page is a masterful writer who has a keen eye for what is going on and who has the ability to put into words his observations realistically, sensitive and yet with a great sense of humor.”
Warm summer nights are a reminder to slow down, breathe, and listen to the music…
