Ooklah the Moc, hailing from Palolo Valley on the island of Oahu, HI,
fuses an eclectic mix of original roots and dub reggae into a unique
sound unlike any heard before.  Influenced from many different genres
of music from Jamaica and the UK, Ooklah constantly strives to create
bold melodic statements infused with precise and intricate rhythms that
all come together to make their original sound.

Started in 1997 by Asher “Killer P” Philipart on guitar, John “Barucus”
Davis on drums, and Ryan “Jah Gumby” Murakami on bass, Ooklah the Moc
has grown to be one of the most hard hitting roots reggae bands to come
out of the Pacific.  After the establishment of the band’s rhythm
section, other pieces of the Ooklah puzzle came together, starting off
with James “Ras Bird” La Pierre.  As the first vocalist, Ras Bird
brings a uniquely smooth texture to the forefront of the dub
experience.  Next were the buttery horns from the Kailua band, Dread
Ashanti.  Comprised of Tony “The Bushman” bush on trombone and Gary
“The Ahhman” Nakano on trumpet, the band began to take on a more
intricate flavor.  Two more vocalists, “Sista Micky” Huihui and
Nicholas “Kali” Navales were invited to complete the vocal section and
add a large amount of spice to the pot.  Rounding out the band is its
youngest member, Brad “Watts” Watanabe, who was asked to play keys and
brings his extensive musical knowledge to enhance the solid rhythm
section.

Together these nine musicians have made Ooklah the Moc a huge force in
reggae music.  No matter what your taste, Ooklah the Moc always blends
positive, intricate and uplifting music with an enormous spirit to
create a powerful sound all their own.
