Oobleck, founded in 2008, is an original, analog funk band out of the Capital Region of NY. Known regionally for inciting dance parties wherever they land, Oobleck has had the fortune of sharing the stage with the likes of New Orleans greats Big Sam’s Funky Nation and Bonerama.
Boasting a big, in your face sound, they mix grungy funk with afrobeat poly-rhythms, gritty blues, and hardcore blast beats to make a head-bopping, booty-shaking good time.
“Sometimes they pump out the stone-cold soul-funk of the JBs. Sometimes they veer into the Afro-funk of Fela Kuti. And sometimes – especially on the album closers “Funk Sucker” and “Waiting for Ryan” – they head off into Frank Zappa’s Grand Wazoo territory.” Nippertown! 10-12-2012
