Teodross Avery Group

I've been totally enjoying saxophonist Teodross Avery's go-for-broke, textural, inventive playing in the online clips I've been listening to in recent days, and now I can't wait to hear him perform live!

Originally from California, Teo won a full music scholarship to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, and was later signed to a major record label at age 19. He's now based in New York, where he continues to perform, compose, and produce.

WHERE: Sound Room, in uptown Oakland (on Broadway, between 21st and 22nd Streets)

COST: $20 at the door (if tickets are still available then) OR about $22 in advance online, for the Advanced Entry tickets.  Buy your own tickets.


SEATING: Seating is unassigned, at small tables that comfortably seat 4 people each (or more in a pinch). However, there are 2 pricing levels, one of which allows earlier entry.

>>> IMPORTANT: I will move people up from the Meetup Wait List to the Meetup RSVP list once they Message or email me their ticket confirmation information showing that they have bought an Advanced Entry ticket. <<< The Advanced Entry tickets will enable us to snag some good seats together. Later seating at this venue is catch-as-catch-can.

WHEN/WHERE TO MEET: Meet inside the Sound Room's performance area by 7:15 p.m. Note that there are 2 ticket prices for this show. The higher-priced Advanced Entry tickets allow entry starting at 7:00 p.m.; the lower-priced tickets allow entry starting at 7:30 p.m. (The show starts at 8:00 p.m.)

HOW TO FIND ME: I'm WF, 5 feet tall, with short auburn hair. See my picture on my Meetup profile. I'll email my cellphone number and final info to RSVPers beforehand.

TRANSIT/PARKING: The Sound Room is located about 2 blocks from the 19th Street BART station. Side-street parking is typically available unless there's a show at the nearby Paramount on the same night. There are also several paid outdoor parking lots in the area. See more info here:

FOOD OPTION: The Sound Room has a limited but good menu of small plates (entrees and desserts) and drinks that you can enjoy before or during the show. (Order and pay at the front counter. There is no drink/food minimum requirement, but purchases help cover this nonprofit's operating costs.)

    Wheee! A powerhouse, wide-ranging performance by all the musicians, especially Teo Avery on sax, playing untill almost 11:30 p.m. - what a deal! And we had a good-sized Meetup group of friendly, talkative folks - always a plus :)

    If anyone else is coming by BART this evening, FYI that the BART website shows that there are some lingering 10-minute delays as of 5:30 p.m.; I think I'll still be able to get to The Sound Room by 7:15 p.m., however.

      Ha! To each her own... I think the guy is great! He reminds me somewhat of locally based sax player Howard Wiley's playing.
