Oscar Alston
1 Track
Funk, R&B, Soul, Gospel type band with an air of the 1970 - 1980 feel along with the Hiphop flavor!
What's up? I'm Oscar Alston with Some City Friends! I am the former bass player for Rick James, Teena Marie, The Stone City Band, The Manhattans, Blue Magic and others. I have also played on hits by The Temptations, Smokey Robinson and M.C. Hammer!
Band/artist history
The band itself is young. The members have been around the Buffalo, music scene for decades. We have played various gigs and types of music individually for years and thought this would be a great way to give back to a wonderful city, Buffalo, and to play along with each other as a group and enjoy our talent collectively!
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Right now we are not playing out live, concentrating more on recording and small community active business.
Your musical influences
Rick James, Prince, James Brown, Michael Jackson, R. Kelly and others.
Anything else?
I would like to encourage entertainers and others who may have "attained" to remember friends, family and community. To assist when you can and insist when you have to!
