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!
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!
Right now we are not playing out live, concentrating more on recording and small community active business.
Rick James, Prince, James Brown, Michael Jackson,
R. Kelly and others.
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!
