Revin’ It Up at Pauly’s Hotel

Bring an instrument and get down for the “RPM Challenge” hosted by the Albany Music Coalition. Be there are 8 to be part of an impromptu recording session. Stick around and keep it going for a funkified set of Oobleck.

Scott's Toys

This could also be the premier of the new effects set-up. The attempt at Radio Bean was… well, it was a kick ass acoustic set for the horns. Here’s a taste from our first practice of the year. If the sound gods are willing you can check it live on Friday.

Radio Bean

Always a blast at the Bean! Check out our recent visit on Thanks to analog_universe for the great photo. Follow the link for some phenomenal photography. (for you literary scholars that’s alliteration)

Keep posted for a new round of dates including including our first trip to Connecticut for “Black Rock Rock’s Mardi Gras Party” on 2/9. Proceeds from the show are going to provide music lessons to K.E.Y.S. (Kids Empowered by Your Support), which provides music lessons to under-served students in Bridgeport, CT. It’s going to be a funky February….more alliteration. This post has an educational theme.

Takin’ Over Red Square

Get your friday night Ska fix at Red Square. We’re opening up for The Big Takeover and it’s guaranteed to make you shake your tuchas. (It’s almost Chanukah) This post is dedicated to great Ska bands.






Did You Catch The Moroccan Funk?

Friday night was a good night for live music in the Capital Region. John Medeski sat in with the Moroccan funk group Club D’Elf at Club Helsinki in Hudson, Red Square hosted Timbre Coup and Pigeons Playing Ping-Pong, School Bus Yellow was at Dino BBQ in Troy, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was throwing down the swing at the Troy Savings Band Music Hall. Every night should have options like this!

In case you missed all the live music here’s a tasty nugget from Oobleck’s archives to hold you over till December 7th when we’re back at Red Square with The Big Takeover.

Big Sam Was A Funky Good Time

Big Sam can blow! Not sure he even needed a mic for his horn. Friday was a funky good time. Thanks everyone for coming out and dancing your asses off. If you didn’t make it out here’s a taste of what you missed. Click on the photo above for more sights and below is a portion of our set.
