A Night With 51Oakland:
featuring some of Oakland's finest student musicians

51Oakland and Yoshi’s Jazz Club present, A Night with 51Oakland, featuring some of Oakland’s finest student musicians for a night of incredible music. This evening of entertainment will be hosted by Sterling James from KBLX, along with a student Emcee.

Student bands performing on January 24th include the Skyline All-Stars, Oakland Future Trio, and Minor F. There will be special surprise guests (professional artists) throughout the night.

Students will also help produce the event, gaining experience behind the scenes, as well as with marketing and production. This will allow more students to share in the opportunity and gain valuable skills.

Giving Oakland students performance opportunities is one of the missions of the organization. An opportunity to perform at one of the world’s most respected jazz venues can be life-changing. Yoshi Akiba is not only the co-owner of Yoshi’s Jazz Club, but also a co-founder of 51Oakland. Creating opportunities for kids to have access to music education is something near and dear to her heart. Yoshi has expressed her hope that the innovative music and arts programs 51Oakland supports will help to fill some of the gaps created by cuts to education funding, build students’ self-esteem and self-worth, and create positive outcomes by instilling the values of diligence, commitment, and hard work.
