welcome to


Jerry Stucker obtained his funk credentials from having worked with some of the best. A native of Chicago, Jerry's roots are planted firmly in blues and R & B. Along with a solo venture Jerry works with the legendary jazz/funk group The Headhunters and Gil Scot- Heron's New Midnight Band featuring Brian Jackson. Stucker also leads his own band called The Eastside Tribe, a San Francisco Bay Area Jazz/Funk quartet, and is on a relentless quest to keep the Funk alive. As well as a musical director Jerry is also a producer doing production and artist development for jazz, funk and r&b artists.

"At a time when so many players claim to be funky, Jerry Stucker is not only FUNKY, but he's a one-man encyclopedia of slinky, skanky, rock steady, and greasy rhythms. He knows a gazillion funky guitar inversions, his
guitar tone is sparkling, and his parts always stab and dance all over the rhythm, finding ways to propel, accent, and add excitement to a song's groove. If you really want your tunes to dance, this is the cat you need playing guitar for you
