About the Band
Start with topical original tunes about modern subjects, and add a selection of covers that folks are likely to know using a lot of Ska, with Blues, Rock, some South African and Caribbean rhythms and mix with whatever influences the band might feel that night, like New Orleans Funk, fold in a strong dance rhythm section who can jam, four dynamic vocalists with harmonies, and a band that is having a huge amount of fun on stage and you get Offbeats.
Initially formed as an originals band in 1987, Offbeats now include covers that are similar to their own material spanning decades from the 60’s to the present day from Motown to Blondie to Pharrell.
With two CDs out, decades of videos, a strong web site easily found in Google, a Facebook Page (@eastbaybeats) a Youtube Channel and the beginnings of a social media presence, the band is ready to perform.
Professional, dependable, and fun to be around, Offbeats keep an upbeat groove going onstage and off and work to play at appropriate volume levels and material that works for each venue.
