Lee Oskar & Friends
December 17, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm$35.00
Lee Oskar is an internationally acclaimed harmonica virtuoso, composer, producer, manufacturer and lifelong musical explorer. He is renowned for his iconic role as a founding member, co-composer and lead harmonica player of the pioneering funk/jazz band that composed and recorded such hits as “Low Rider,”“Spill the Wine,” “Cisco Kid,” “The World is a Ghetto,” “Slippin’ into Darkness,” “Why Can’t Be Friends,” and many more chart-topping songs from 1969-1993.
Since then, Oskar and his original band mates from that era perform as the LowRider Band. Oskar also performs around the world with outstanding musicians from the Pacific Northwest, known as Lee Oskar & Friends, featuring his own new arrangements, innovative compositions and well-loved hit songs.
Artistically, Oskar has earned critical and popular acclaim for nearly four decades with his wide-ranging portfolio of unforgettable compositions evoking different moods, rhythms and genres. In the words of Seattle Times critic Misha Berson, “The harmonica man can really blow, but he can croon, too.”
Lee Oskar has earned ASCAP writing awards, and had his signature sound celebrated in Pitbull and Kesha’s recent hit, “Timber,” which was inspired by Oskar’s harmonica contributions in the song “San Francisco Bay.”
Lee Oskar established his own recording label, Dreams We Share™ in 2020. He proudly produces professional recording artists as well as his own music. The first collection of Lee’s original works under Dreams We Share is his master work, “Never Forget”(January 2022), which serves as a culmination of his life’s work and an artistic memoir of his life. Other recording projects with Lee Oskar & Friends featuring exciting orchestrations of his original compositions will be released in the near future. Also under his Dreams We Share™ label, Oskar recently produced and released the much-anticipated album, “So Much Trouble,” featuring original songs written and performed by David Rotundo, a well-received Canadian artist and Lee Oskar Harmonicas Featured Artist (Dreams We Share; October 2020). This album has been highly acclaimed by critics and fans alike, performing consistently well on numerous blues charts since its release.
In addition, Oskar has brilliantly produced the work of other artists playing Oskar compositions, including Takahiro Miyazaki from Japan, who Oskar considers to be one of the world’s greatest saxophone players
Oskar is proud to be a featured artist on globally recognized Playing for Change’s “Songs Around the World” album and the “Listen to the Music” project, in collaboration with musicians around the world. Through his company, Lee Oskar Harmonicas, he has created a special limited edition line of harmonica products exclusively available through Playing for Change to help support artists and musical education around the world.
