The Eastside Tribe, a San Francisco Bay Area Jazz/Funk quartet lead by guitar player Jerry Stucker, is on a relentless quest to keep the Funk alive. Along with a solo venture Jerry works with Gil Scot-Heron’s New Midnight Band featuring Brian Jackson and the legendary jazz/funk group The Headhunters.
“At a time when so many players claim to be funky, Jerry Stucker is not only FUNKY, but he’s a one- man encyclopedia of slinky, skanky, rock steady, and greasy rhythms. He knows a gazillion funky guitar inversions, his
guitar tone is sparkling, and his parts always stab and dance all over the rhythm, finding ways to propel, accent, and add excitement to a song’s groove. If you really want your tunes to dance, this is the cat you need playing guitar for you.”
