But that's not all, for VibeRide proudly presents San Franciso Bay's Hoopty, who have recently started laying down some serious grooves for the good folk on the west coast of the US of A. If this is your neck of the woods, then go check them out! Hoopty find themselves in the company of Jamiroquai, The Sunburst Band, Gwen McCrae, Chaka Khan, Aurra, and the splendiferous Incognito.
Hoopty is a relatively newly formed funk-outfit made up of experienced and locally popular jazz-funk musicians from the San Franciso Bay area, who have a long history of playing together in other bands. According to Hoopty they sound like Maceo Parker, James Brown and Parliament Funkadelic, and "the result is an intoxicating elixir of 98 proof instrumental funk, sure to get the funkalites dancing and the funkadudes exclaiming, "Ah Yeah." That's what we like to hear!
To read more about Hoopty and hear more of their music, check out Hoopty on ReverbNation where they are currently one of the most popular in the jazz/funk category. It's not hard to see why. Once again, if you're in the San Fran bay area, then check out these guys live because with stage dancers, video projections and light shows, you're sure to have a blast.
