TOaG Quartet Album Release Party 
Join us at the OACC for an evening of celebration, groove, and truth as we showcase music from this album with 2 sets from the quartet - with Ricky Carter on Drums, DV Wright on guitar and live effects, Eli Maliwan on Tenor and Alto Sax, and Benjamin Lee on Upright Bass, Electric Bass and sampler - and feature the some of the students from our TOaG Jazz Clinic Program in partnership with Oakland High School. These young musicians are an an inspiration to us all, and we are so excited to have them share some of their music with all you beautiful people!
