About Oakland Stroke
Oakland Stroke is a tribute band formed in 2014 by local veteran saxophonists/vocalists Ted Wirt and Donna Lee DePrille. They perform Bay Area “soul with a capital S” and ’70s funk. Begun as a Tower of Power tribute, the band also incorporates the music of another San Francisco band, Santana. This 12-piece ensemble began playing gigs in the Pioneer Valley at the Arts Block in Greenfield, Center for the Arts in Holyoke, and Club One in Agawam. The band is developing material from other Bay Area groups, currently playing music from SANTANA as well. Vocalists Donna Lee, Ted Wirt, and Peter Carne are longstanding members of the Springfield Radiators and the Charles Neville Big Band.
