BREAKESTRA feat. Afrodyete (L.A., Strut):: Welcome To The Breakestra Website ::
If we were to construct a family tree of LA bands, Breakestra would be mentioned in the same breath as Weapon of Choice, Very Be Careful. Jurassic 5, Fishbone, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction and Ozomatli. These bands began in backyard jam sessions and random open mics held throughout the city from Echo Park to Venice, Highland Park to Topanga Canyon. Those early days were just after the ’92 Riots. Musicians from all over the city became tighter and many experimental jam sessions occurred fusing genres like funk, hip-hop, rock and acoustic soul resulting in truly innovative, multiculturaL music. Musical friendships between cats like Miles, Mixmaster Wolf, Cut Chemist, Peaunut Butter Wolf, Carlos Guaico and many others became the seeds for landmark clubs and two indie record labels that still flourish to this day. Original members of the Breakestra have gone on to either play or write songs for/with the Black Eyed Peas, Macy Gray, The Rebirth, Dakah, the list goes on.
The current Breakestra live show line-up for 2011 is:
Miles Tackett, bassist/cellist & vocalist
Mix Master Wolf -soul shoutin’, sangin’ & percussion
Afrodyete the african goddess of funky soul & love-vocals & percussion
Jud Mcdaniel of (Simple Citizens)-guitar & bass
Pat “The Snake” Bailey - guitar (also the guitarist for The Rebirth)
Chuck Boogie-Fender Rhodes, organ & percussion
Nate Ketner & David Moyer- Saxophones & flute
Jason Pipkin, John Montgomery & Miles Senzaki- drums
Josh Welchez,Mike Rocha & Eitan Avineri-trumpet
