Afroholix blends Funk, Soul, Hip Hop and Jazz improv from deep outer space to make the mix just right. Featuring some of the Bay’s top talent, Afroholix combines many different genres of Black music to make something beautiful, funky and fresh. Every show is a unique event. We drop Soul, Funk, Hip Hop and Jazz with love and soulful improvisation to make each night a special one. Born and raised from Oakland’s rich musical legacy, Afroholix began our journey in early 2015. Influenced by Miles, Jimi, Sade, classic Hip Hop and golden era Jazz, we do our thing and make it funky!



Manos Lindas is the product of what its name suggests. Blurring an array of genres and origins, each member contributes their individual hands for a collective sound that can’t be pinpointed. The Bay Area is a cultural melting pot and certain aspects of that culture are fading, natives would tell you. The eccentricity, the color, the nerve, the beauty, and the edge: this is what Manos Lindas sounds like. Come and bear witness to something you’ve never seen before. 



Oakland-native singer-songwriter Jesse Loren Strickman is known for potent lyrics and powerfully minimal acoustic music. Annually touring the Pacific West Coast, Strickman has played everywhere from intimate cafes to outdoor amphitheaters and festivals. He’s opened for national and world acts such as Damien Jurado, CAKE, The T Sisters and many more. Emotionally charged vocals sail over jaunty acoustic chords in songs about personal love and the power of social change. 



Born and Raised in California, Becky Mimiaga has been studying voice since age 11. She started writing and performing her own music at age 16, while fronting various rock, folk and blues bands. She spent two years studying classical voice at Skidmore College before transferring to the New School For Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City. There, she completed her BFA in Vocal Performance studies. In 2015, she left NYC for Oakland and, within a year, began recording Party Trick at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco. Currently, Rebecca is mixing her second LOUIZA album.



The Alegre Sisters are a harmonizing, uke-strumming, sister band. 

Mama Alegre taught sisters CJ & Lauren to sing when they were knee high to a grasshopper, and today their sweet, intimately blended vocals conjure the one-of-a-kind magic of homegrown music.
