A Whoadees performance is a mix of styles and sounds from around the world. Staying true to their Bay Area roots, these five funky brothers bring a fusion of hip hop, soul, and blues to the mix, inspiring people to dance, or to simply close their eyes and be filled with soulful sounds. 

DJ Benet will be playing in the Amphitheater from 5 to 6 pm, then again from 7:30 to 8:30 pm. 

About The Whoadees

We are The Whoadees: five unique artists that came together and became a family, each of us bringing our own flavor and style to the group. Influenced by music from all around the world and with roots in hip hop, funk, and jazz, the Whoadees are made up of Michael Boyle, Von Carter, David Cruz, Pher the Legend, and Jake Zimma. 

OMCA is committed to providing programs that are accessible, welcoming, and inclusive of our community.
