Strike Iron: After a period of metamorphosis, Strike Iron has re-emerged in full force with its unique blend of Afrobeat, Funk, Jazz Fusion, and Avant Garde sensibilities. The band will feature a suite of brand new original music by musical director and all around mad scientist Bello (of Ernest Ranglin, Phil Lesh and Friends). Consisting of a six piece horn section, two percussionists, two guitars, electric bass, and a drummer, all of which are top Oakland and San Francisco session players, Strike Iron brings original dance music and electric energy to any stage they play. Be prepared for face melting, booty shaking, and the thickest of grooves all night long.
Orchestra Gold: Fronted by the charismatic Malian singer and dancer Mariam Diakité, Orchestra Gold (OG) plays an original stew of African – inspired rock and soul music. Drawing deeply on Mali’s musical history, OG blends analog, rhythmic dance music together with elements of psychedelic soul. With roots Malian drumming and the deep wisdom of Mariam’s vocals, OG moves audiences from the inside out.
