Strike Iron is an Oakland based, 12-piece juggernaut who brings high-energy grooves and a blistering band. Completed by an explosive stage show, thick with hypnotic percussion, heavy horns, dance, roaring vocals, funky rhythms, and pulsating group movement. Born out of the ashes of the international Afrobeat act Albino, Strike Iron brings sexy, socially charged dance music into the 21st century.

Fronted by multi-instrumentalist, composer and lead vocalist Michael Bello (Phil Lesh and Friends, Ernest Ranglin), and featuring a slew of The Bay's consummate professionals, Strike Iron is an original dance band unlike any other.



  • A free performance by Strike Iron on the BART Plaza Stage, located on Shattuck Ave between Center Street and Allston Way.
