The band is:
Scott Goldstone – lead vocals, keyboards, guitar
A multi-musician and versatile singer, Scott Goldstone has written, performed, and produced three solo albums that span several different genres and styles. His last solo record, N.Y.C., Bodily, was a concept album and ode to the Big Apple, where he lived and attended school before returning to his native California.
An old soul, Scott’s favorite styles of music include Philly Soul, Motown, psychedelia, and all kinds of jazz. Some of his notable influences include Todd Rundgren, Daryl Hall, Donald Fagen, and Marvin Gaye.
Alan Oehler – guitar, background vocals
Born and raised in Hicksville, NY, Alan moved out to California and has lived in San Francisco, LA, and for some years now on the Peninsula. He is an experienced, versatile and expressive guitar player, equally at home with rhythm and lead playing in a wide variety of styles, from blues to jazz to soul to rock – anything with a groove. He is influenced by almost everything, including pastina, Weather Report, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, burritos, John McLaughlin, Allan Holdsworth, Jeff Beck, Mike Stern, pizza, Robben Ford, Derek Trucks, XTC, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Steve Winwood, Cream, ice cream, Little Feat, Frank Zappa, IPAs, etc.
Larry Sanders – sax, flute, background vocals
A native of New Orleans, Larry migrated to Los Angeles at a young age, then to the San Francisco Bay Area. He has performed professionally for more than 30 years. After some early scholastic training, he received tutelage from greats like Al McKay (formerly with Earth, Wind, & Fire) and jazz pianist Horace Tapscott.
Larry is comfortable in all genres, including jazz, rock, pop, R&B, blues, country, reggae, and classical, and adds his personal touch on saxophones, flute and vocals.
He has performed at various venues all over California, Washington, New York, Canada, and Hawaii with various club, concert and festival bands and recording artists from the Bay Area. He has shared the stage with greats like Pete Escovedo, Lenny Williams, Tony! Toni! Toné, Chris Cain, the Fowler Brothers, Lakeside Express, and the Temptations… to name a few…
Come out and hear No Static and enjoy Larry as he continues to create his musical magic!
Tom Josa – bass, background vocals
Tom comes from a family of musicians, and in his early years he learned to play wind instruments like the oboe and baritone sax, all while teaching himself guitar. His real passion is music with a beat, which led him to learn the bass.
Apparently, he never got the “don’t quit your day job” memo, and left behind a long and successful career to pursue this and other interests. Since 2007 he has played in local bands such as the The Distractions, Jimmy Hit the Wall, Full On, Tehya, Above the Law, Sin Dokumentos, and The Hummers.
Tom is keen to learn and play a variety of music, appreciating that “there is hardly a genre that doesn’t produce some great music once you get it.” Rock, funk, pop, Latin, indie, country, even disco and smooth jazz are all in his wheelhouse. “So many great songs, so little time!”
Early influences include Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, Santana, The Eagles, The Rippingtons and Sade, but his all-time favorite band is Steely Dan.
Not in it for fame or fortune, watching people having a good time dancing is what keeps him going.
Dennis O’Keefe – drums
Dennis is a Bay Area native, a multi-instrumentalist who has played in various groups since the early 90’s. Starting out as a classically-trained pianist at a young age, he picked up the drums in high school, filling a missing spot in a friend’s band. It stuck, and drums became his instrument of choice for live performances.
Dennis has spent time writing, recording and performing with original bands. His influences behind the kit include David Garibaldi, Danny Carey, Carter Beauford, Steve Gadd and a host of jazz masters. He enjoys jazz piano and music theory in his downtime and occasionally takes on piano students.
