Strike Iron

Unique blend of Afrobeat, Funk, Jazz Fusion and Avant Garde

After a period of metamorphosis, SF Music Award winning band Strike Iron (formerly Albino!) has emerged in full force with their unique blend of Afrobeat, Funk, Jazz Fusion and Avant Garde sensibilities. Featuring a suite of brand new original music by musical director and all around mad scientist Michael Mark Bello (of Ernest Ranglin, Phil Lesh and Friends), the 12-piece ensemble honors the fiery legacy of Afrobeat inventor Fela Kuti by melding tightly crafted arrangements and jazz-tinged harmony with propulsive, high energy grooves.

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.

Witnessing all twelve members of this garish behemoth locking into choreographed step is as much of a feast for the eyes as the band's deliciously layered funk is for the ears. According to the SF Weekly, "This is world music that lives up to its name."
