Dub from an Oakland boogaloo group called “Gentlemen of Production” gives a testimonial.
Highlights of Jerry Rentie during the 2010 Funk Fest Panel. Jerry recounts his beginnings in dance, and some of the fun times he had in the late 60’s.
In the summer of 2011 Oakland had its first BBQ. Thanks to Chuck Powell for the original idea behind the BBQ. Also a big thank you to Levant Obulie, and Joe Hayama. Because of them it was a great success. The event took place at the port of Oakland at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park.
Second event is coming September 1st 2012. Same place and location. It should be a good one.
