Son Chévere is a quartet that plays Cuban Dance Music — Son Cubano con Salsa y Timba. They opened for Havana D Primera during their San Francisco show in 2019. The members of Son Chévere are Jordan Wilson (Tres & Vocals), Ryan Mead (Percussion & Vocals), Maria Lorenzi (Upright Bass Keytar & Vocals), with special guest Mario Silva (Trumpet).
The LMDC building is owned by the City of Oakland so we are required to vacate by midnight. Masks are NOT required at our event in the ballroom or Hall 3 (designated food and drink area adjacent to ballroom), but masks ARE required in the hallway and bathrooms as the space is shared with other groups.
There is absolutely no food or drink in the ballroom, including water — be sure to keep all food and drink (including water) in Hall 3 or the lobby.
