Eric Darius at Yoshi’s/Oakland!

Saxophonist Eric Darius is one of the most exciting musicians to enter the Contemporary Jazz scene in the last decade, starting his recording career at the age of 17. I first saw him play at the SeaBreeze Jazz Festival in Florida in April 2011, and he proved to be one of the most popular acts among all the big players featured there.

Only 29 years old, he already has four critically acclaimed albums, a Number One hit single and Five Top 10 radio hits on Nielsen’s R&R/Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts. His music innovatively crosses over all music boundaries from Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, to Pop, creating a very distinctive, fresh sound and approach that is uniquely his own.

This show will probably sell out, so get your tickets now!

WHEN: Friday July 5th … 6:30pm, so that we can meet, talk and have a drink prior to the 8pm show.

WHERE: Yoshi’s Jazz Club, 510 Embarcadero West, Oakland, CA. Meet in the bar inside Yoshi’s at 6:30pm.

RSVP: Please RSVP “Yes” on our Meetup event page.

TICKETS: Please purchase your own “Standard” tickets for the 8pm Friday July 5th show on Yoshi's website:

http://www.yoshis.com/oakland/jazzclub/artist/show/3532

“Standard” tickets for the 8pm show are $28 per person (plus Yoshi’s $3 ticketing fee). Make sure to pre-purchase your concert tickets online (see the link above) and pick up the tickets at the box office upon arrival. These tickets are for open (unreserved) seating so we need to get into the theater early to grab unassigned seats in the back of the club. Yoshi’s is small enough so that even the seats in the back are great seats.
We can order appetizers and small plates as well as drinks during the show, so you won’t have to eat dinner beforehand.

Hope you can join us!

    Hi energy show, he is very creative, I loved his band also. Enjoyed the meetup company. Seems we all speak the same music language.

    Eric did his usual great show. The smaller venue allowed him to engage MORE and show off his great band members up close and personal. GREAT meetup event, fun sharing the evening with other jazz lovers. Loved the evening totally!

    I saw Eric Darius at the Newport Beach Jazz Festival a month ago. He shared the stage with Larry Braggs, so I'm looking forward to seeing Eric perform all his magic at Yoshi's this Friday!

    Hi. Sorry I canceled right after I RSVP's yes. I really want to go but I had to think more about it and Yoshi's is really too expensive for me right now. Definitely a less expensive event or someone I absolutely HAVE to see! Have fun!

    Where exactly do we meet at 6:30 to socialize before show? Right inside? I'm new. Maybe don't know the procedure!
