I think their on tour, I saw that name on the Ashkenaz calendar and I think a couple other spots in northern california. Can't say I'm familiar with their music though. Peace

I think they are passing through on a small tour, catch them if you can.

We hosted them in SLO last year and couldn't have been more happy with the turnout as well as their musicianship and professionalism.

Good stuff.

Jah Gumby, their bassist, has a wicked record collection.

One love

If I lived out there I'd be all over this tour. Ooklah the Moc IMHO is the best of the Hawai'ian roots scene...dubby roots too. Versatile vocals, great horns, the whole package.

i was very impressed with the cds they sent in for evaluation. solid roots music from these guys and that comes from someone (and someone else) who doesnt pass that compliment out easily.

Koko Meets Ooklah is a nice album. I'll be at the Bash on 4/2. I hope the sound is better than it was at Anthony B.

Checked the link provided by Ras Danny - half expecting to hear something that I might not like, but ended up being suprised at Ooklah's music.

The lead singer didn't drive me crazy and the music was how I like it, simple, not overly polished & drowning in dramatic chord changes. Almost reminding me of a good JA band.

Sure, I only head sound samples but if this is what you get in full - I'd make the effort to go see them live.

Aloha,

We would like to make you more familiar with our group, if I may take the liberty of sending a promo pack for possible play on your show. Please contact me, Tony, the trombone player, directly at my email abush@ooklahthemoc.com. Respect.

As far as SNWMF, you know this is a musical love affair and that our members have attended several of the past snwmf shows and we hope to some day lay our tunes down on the larger community. Until then we shall pass through as often as we can, and I think Ras Danny and Oregon crew are definitely overdue next. See you soon my brother. Anyone need direct info on our tour, email me direct at abush@ooklahthemoc.com www.ooklahthemoc.com

Did anyone make the Ashkenaz show? I was far too tired to attend Ashkenaz that night after the show at Blakes the night before. Still a great set from Binghi at that show, but anyone with more than 3 brain cells was tired of the gangsta rappers that night. I say bring on Binghi Ghost at a more reggae friendly venue, like ashkenaz. Peace.

Yes, Ras James. See post two above. I was there rockin' the house at the Ashkenaz. Why I was not at Blake's to see Binghi and went to 2232 MLK in Oakland to see Mr. Ghost and Rankin' Scroo so I could make the Moc on Thursday. Love rockin' at the Az. Great crowd. Ooklah was most fine, the three singers trading off, the horns, good tunes, what good be finer than Irie vibes in Cali?

Good to meet you Tony Bush and hope only fine things for the group. "Rearrange your positive" now in regular rotation. Love discovering new music
