The Oakland Stroke are a quintet of veteran Bay Area musicians playing vintage instrumental Funky Soul and Jazz in the style of artists such as The Meters, Booker T & the MG’s, Jimmy Smith and James Brown. We feature a group of highly experienced professionals who have performed in various ensembles throughout the U.S., Europe, Japan and Brazil. Our players have also performed at many local venues including The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, The Warfield, The independent, Slim’s, The Fillmore, Great American Music Hall, Bimbo’s, Herbst Theater and The Treasure Island Music Festival. Our name, borrowed from a song by local legends Tower of Power, pays homage to the great Funk and Soul tradition of Oakland. Our musical repertoire ranges from groovy cocktail and Cool Jazz with a sprinkle of space age Dub to full-on funky dance floor throw-downs.
