DIRECTIONS:

from BART: I recommend taking a cab there are cabs right across where you come out - the other side of the chain link fence.  - our address is 2875 Glascock Street in Waterpark lofts (the gated parking lot at 29th and Glascock). However, if you want to walk. Get to the Fruitvale BART station. At the station you’ll walk in the direction that the buses pull out until it gets you to San Leandro where you’ll go right on San Leandro for a block where you’ll turn left on Frutivale. Walk a few blocks, you’ll go under the freeway and end up taking a right on E. 7th St. Then you’ll take your second left onto Derby St. but doesn’t have a street sign. Go a few blocks to Glascock St. where you take a right. Walk a few blocks on Glascock St. and when the condominiums/town houses on your left end there will be white gated fence which is the Water Park Lofts which is 2875 Glascock St. Call 510-534-6163 if yo have any problems.  We are in #109 off the courtyard.

Driving from San Francisco, Berkeley etc. get on to the 880 S past downtown Oakland for 3 miles to Fruitvale Ave. exit, take an immediate right on to Derby St. off of the exit. Go down a few blocks and take a right on Glascock St. go a few blocks and when the condominiums/town houses on your left end there will be white gated fence which is the Water Park Lofts which is 2875 Glascock St. There is normally always parking on the street (street sweeping Sat and Sun morning to look out for). Call 510-534-6163 if you have any problems. We are in #109 off the courtyard. 

Driving from Hayward, San Jose, etc. get on the 880 N, take the 29th Ave/Fruitvale Ave exit. Take the first right towards Fruitvale Ave. take the next right on Del Norte. Take your next right on Elmwood Ave. Go up to the next stop sign where it forces you to go left, be careful as cars are coming off the highway right there, this becomes Derby St. Go down a few blocks and take a right on Glascock St. go a few blocks and when the condominiums/town houses on your left end there will be white gated fence which is the Water Park Lofts which is 2875 Glascock St. There is normally always parking on the street (street sweeping Sat and Sun morning to look out for). Call 510-534-6163  if you have any problems.  We are in #109 off the courtyard.

Her material is both personal and universal and she delves into her songs without fear, sharing her heart and winnng the hearts of her audience.

KENNY WASHINGTON "The thing is, Washington slays 'em wherever he performs...he's an oversize talent who can scat with the harmonic daring and rhythmic command of a bebop saxophonist, croon with the simmering soul of Donny Hathaway, and interpret standards with such intelligence and emotional commitment it's like Rodgers and Hart wrote "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" with him in mind." -- Andrew Gilbert, eastbayexpress.com
