"3 boys. 3 instruments. Infinite talent," is how Oakland Future Trio categorizes themselves. Comprised of Ari Carpenter on Bass, Caleb Sankoh on Keys, and Mikhi Woodley on drums, the junior jazz trio has had a busy month performing for the Oakland Police Department, Oakland Drops Beats, Jazz in the Neighborhood and other locations around the Bay. Not quite pint-sized but very passionate about music, the three will hit the main stage of the Eastlake Music Festival tomorrow along with a plethera of Bay Area favorites. Can't make the festival? Catch them next month at the Orinda Library Summer Reading Festival or the Rock Wall Wine Company's Urban Palette, both on June 6.

We will hear plenty from famed football star Marshawn Lynch in his first film feature, Family First: The Marshawn Lynch Story. Mario Bobino (Debonair Productions) released a teaser today of the film that begins with the Oakland native's high school football career and ends with his 2014 Super Bowl championship. Says Lynch of the film, "For me, it's just about having some fun... It's just a fun experience. I also get to shine light on the community and some of the things that we grew up doing and what we went through."
Written by Damon Hart, the film is co-produced by Ramasses Head (History In The Making Entertainment) and Shirley Sharp. Actress Jonez Cain (An Argument, Nina's Hot Spot) plays Lynch's mom, Sunshine Lynch, in the movie.
