Biography

The Ofersures (pronounced Oh - Fer - Shure-s) are an exciting new band out of Manhattan Beach, CA. The 5-piece group uses a line-up of mandolin, acoustic guitar, piano, bass & drums to produce a sound that is organic, fresh and new, while at the same moment, timeless and accessible. The Ofersures’ music effortlessly travels the musical landscapes between Folk, Punk, Hillbilly, Indie, Roots Rock, Bluegrass , and even Tin Pan Alley—all tinged with the influence of the Southern California Beach culture that they grew up together in—to create an exciting hybrid of new sounds that pleasantly grasp the ears and remind us all about how fun music can be. Lyrically, the band is cutting, clever and current, taking us on adventures of love, loss, the Civil War, unemployment and even binge drinking — all more like short stories, than your typical song, and all oozing with an infectious sense of humor and fun…

Formed in January 2008 by Sherif Shoucri (guitar, vocals) and Brian Gregoire (mandolin, vocals), the duo was determined to create a style that combined their older punk rock and indie influences with their newfound love of folk, bluegrass, and the Blues. The result?… Let’s just say that Green Day and Earl Scruggs had a baby!…And it was raised by Simon & Garfunkel!! You get the picture, but their real story doesn’t begin here…
