About

The Dewayne Oakley Blues Ensemble creates authentic music and performances firmly grounded in American Blues and Jazz. Featuring guitarist Ralph Nelson, trumpeter Christopher Lowell Clarke, drummer Genius Wesley, and led by bassist and vocalist Dewayne Oakley, our music speaks to the spirit and culture of life in our ever-changing world. We invite you to join us as we bring music to the East Bay and abroad.

$42.24 of $1,000 per month
I want to record my original material. We have recorded the standards compiled over the last twenty-five or thirty years with a measure of success and would like to swing and sing about our times with our musical point of view. A second Blues CD, this time with some original themes thrown in to the mix is our immediate goal. Followed by a CD, with originals approaching a more mainstream Jazz standard sound. This includes vocals with a well  arranged ensemble of two or more horns. I am expecting these accomplishments to propel us to a higher level performance in venues of higher caliber, both here and abroad.
