Spawning from countless musical backgrounds and coming together for a common cause, The Doo Doo Funk All-Stars are breathing new life into the music scene throughout the globe. The collaborative core group consists of Dookie Green (Tony Ozier) as the frontman on keys, vocals and instrumentation.

Band members include Tyrone Hendrix and Dennis Dove on drums, Errick Lewis on bass, Steveland Swatkins on keys and talkbox, with vocals from Etta Ward, Nafisaria Scroggins, and Michael Whitmore. Collectively, the All-Stars have shared the stage and worked with the top funk/soul/r&b/hip-hop acts, including Erykah Badu, The Wu-Tang Clan, India Arie, Bernie Worrell, Average White Band, Al Green, and The Foreign Exchange.

Backed by a smooth sound lent by years of combined musical experience of all the band members, a globally-aimed ambition, and a level of talent and skill necessary to begin a movement, the Doo Doo Funk All-Stars work tirelessly to shed light on this unique style of music with a truly uncommon approach. Their motivation is not just to create quality, funky music, but to resurrect the genre and display what funk is meant to sound like. Through intergalactic travels and staggering combined creativity The Doo Doo Funk All-Stars are a breath of fresh air to funk fans and music lovers everywhere.

COMMOTION blends funk, afrobeat, and every other style imaginable to create high energy dance music. In addition to wild originals, the band specializes in live mash-ups by combining two known songs together through concept and manipulation (eg. their Afrobeat Tribute to Michael Jackson blended Fela Kuti and MJ).

    This is absolutely going to be the greatest night of 2011. I would love nothing more than to surprise a very special someone with their favorite band to boogie down to the cosmic grooves that I know will invigorate our souls with some much needed funk and splendor. I never win these things but something tells me there is hope still left in a universe as funky as one providing a perfect end to a strange strange year. Hopefully we will be able to get down with the Doo Doo tomorrow night with the rest of you soulfunky for some old fashioned fun and maybe a little cosmic clarity. nothing says healing like that good live groove. Thanks for your consideration!
