A native of San Francisco, guitarist and singer Moses Oakland came of age with the "San Francisco Sound" bands of the '60s. After a seven year break from professional playing, he returned to the scene in 1984 with the late Oakland, California bluesman Haskell "Cool Papa" Sadler. In Cool Papa's band he got to work and sit-in with many of the Oakland blues notables like Beverly Stovall, "Little Ronnie" Hogan, Birdlegg and the steel guitar master, Freddie Roulette .

In 1987 he arrived, with his family, in St. Paul, Minnesota. Soon after that, he became a fixture at the Monday Night Blues Jam at St. Paul's Blues Saloon, where he became the leader of the house band, Monday Blues, from 1990 until its close in January 2000. During this time he performed in backing bands with Hubert Sumlin, Cash McCall, and Syl Johnson, as well as opening shows for Junior Walker and the All Stars, Kelly Hunt, Savoy Brown and Sue Foley.

Currently, he can be found around the Twin Cities, playing his guitar and singing with his smokin' Blues/R&B/Jazz quartet, featuring Jason Craft: organ, Charles Fletcher: bass and Donald "Hye Pockets" Robertson: drums.
