You Are Invited to Our Monthly Concert/Party/Jam!:)­

*Note: This event is completely FREE as in NO event fee. So any member can sign up, BUT I will be checking attendance! Please be advised.


Hi there,

I'd like to welcome all of you (esp. newbies to the meetup!) to our monthly all-in-one event, and it's FREE of cost. Please come on out and meet us. It's ordinary people's concert, but we do our best to perform variety & to offer musical sharing experience. The concert is followed by potluck/jam at our beloved friend's home in Berkeley at 6p. And yes, you are all invited to it as well. Read full details below while browsing through our event pic's (from top down: concert; potluck; jam; jam++;ping pong!)














The concert will take place @ Redwood Gardens rain or shine while the potluck and jam will take place at a member's home near the concert venue. Please be on time. Come through the main entrance by pressing "#001" to call into the office to get in. Thanks.

Concert @4: Redwood Gardens (Address: 2951 Derby St, Berkeley).

Potluck dinner/musical jam (+ ping pong) after the concert: check you email as the date gets closer for the exact address & potluck assignment.

*WHEN: Every 4th Saturday @ 4p unless notified any change; followed by potluck/jam @6p

The concert will begin @4 at Redwood Gardens. The program consists of mostly classical music featuring  various solo or ensemble vocal/instrumental performances (good mix of both pro & amateur musicians!). Concert generally goes 1-1.5 hours w/o intermission. Afterward, good time continues with potluck and jam session at our good old friend's home until we all get tired out, right?:)

That's all for now. Hope to see you @ the concert/party & let's have a blast!!:)


Voila, here's the driving direction to the venue: 1) Get off on Claremont Ave exit off of Hwy24 twd Walnut Creek
2) Left at the exit
3) Drive all the way up until you see Claremont hotel right near you (crossing w/ Ashby Ave)
4) Right after you pass Ashby, veer to the left
5) Go until the dead end of the street. The bldg ahead of you at the dead end is the venue.
6) Park on street (2hr limit), and walk down on the street called Derby from that dead end. You will see a green roof with 2951 written. That's the entrance to the venue.
*We'll have the door to the community room open until 4. If you come late, dial #001 using intercom outside. Thanks! Hope this helps!:)

Here's the transit route:
1) Bart to Rockridge stn
2) Take AC Transit Bus 49B (*WARNING: Be sure to ask bus driver if it is heading Derby St immediately before you get on!) 
3) Voila, you're there right in front of Redwood Gardens - Look for green awnings w/ its street # 2951) It will take less than 10 min. of bus ride from bart stn. However, Bus 49B comes every 40 min: You should time yourself to catch either 2:59p or 3:39p departure. Hope it helped!:)

      You may want the 49A (clockwise loop). It stops by the Downtown Berkeley BART (corner of Shattuck and Kittredge). To make sure, just ask if the bus goes up Durant.

    Hi All, Just emailed you about tomorrow. See you real soon. For those of you signed up late, and didn't get my email, just come to the concert venue. We'll figure things out from there, cool?:) See you real soon. Thanks!

    I got on the wrong bus last time.. Just checking if it departs at Shattuck and Center or by Allston Way. After I got on bus, I had to get a transfer.. very confusing just like 25 A and 25B..
