Booker Long Duo & Mike Sopko

Michael James Booker - Saxophone/Effects
Ryan Scott Long - Drums
Mike Sopko - Guitar

Booker Long Duo & Mike Sopko is Oakland's up and coming musicians Ryan Scott Long and Michael James Booker have been pursuing their dreams of music since birth. These two met in a bathroom at Chabot College (don't get the wrong idea). Michael told Ryan about a performance he was doing and Ryan loved it. At the time Ryan was in a project called S.K.O.P.E (Some Kind of Psychedelic Experience) with Ben Wallace-Ailsworth (bassist and drummer). Ryan told Ben "We gotta hook up with this guy, he's amazing" after seeing Booker play.
