New Concert Series

Announcing the official return of the In The Moment Concert Series, thanks to my sister, Diane Bennett, and a partnership between the Oaktown Jazz Workshops and Musically Minded Academy, both located in Oakland. Our return series of 5 concerts continues March 2nd, at the beautiful and intimate performance space of the Oaktown Jazz Workshops, located in Jack London Square, very near Yoshi’s. The address is 55 Washington Street, Oakland, CA 94607

The concerts will be monthly, on Saturday evenings, beginning at 8pm. The doors open at 7. All proceeds will go to the musicians, including donations for refreshments. There will be a sliding scale donation at the door for admittance…. $15 and up….. There are no advance tickets, but if you would like to reserve in advance, please contact me at inthemoment1@gmail.com. This concert is already filling up this way. I am also interested in getting sponsors for the concerts, which would provide additional funding for the musicians, so do contact me if you know of someone interested. The format is the same as previous years: giving Bay Area musicians the opportunity to perform material that is unique, often in instrumentation or context, whether it is as a tribute to an influential musician or recording, or their own original material. There is a brief discussion I lead with the musicians before the concert, to, as they say, set the scene. These concerts will be recorded or outlet to play them on the air. I hope to provide some training to Oaktown Jazz Workshops students in sound reinforcement for live performance, and multi-track mixdown and mastering.
