Blues/Rock/Funk: The Oakland Crush (formally The Oakland Stroke) pays homage to the Oakland tradition of mixing Funk, Soul and Jazz into unique musical hybrids. Inspired by great instrumental groups such as Booker T & the MG's, The Meters, Jimmy Smith and The JB's, the band expands on this musical heritage by adding influences from West African Afrobeat, Brazilian Samba and healthy doses of Jamaican Dub in which electronic effects become instruments of improvisation.
Members of The Oakland Crush have performed or collaborated with many notable musicians including Buckethead, Bootsy Collins, Maceo Parker, Bill Laswell, Les Claypool and the members of Primus, Tommy Guerrero, Adrian Young (No Doubt), Brain (Gun's and Roses, Tom Waits, The Crystal Method), Serj Tankian (System Of A Down), Money Mark (Beastie Boys), Dub legend Scientist, The Avengers, Ramellzee, Ray White (Frank Zappa), Lagos Roots feat. members of Fela Kuti's Africa 70, Alfredo Ortiz (Beastie Boys, Ozomatli), DJ Disk (Invisbl Skratch Piklz, Herbie Hancock), Kenny Brooks (Bob Weir's Ratdog), M.I.R.V., Ezra Gale (Aphrodesia, Bitches Brew, Molly Tigre, Super Hi Fi), Frank Mitchell (Thievery Corporation, Fort Knox Recordings), Flex Mathews (Congo Sanchez, SEE-I, Fort Knox Recordings), Undercover Ska, Will Bernard (TJ Kirk, Motherbug) and Joe Bagale (Rat Dog, Jazz Mafia).
