Nathaniel Orivious Stringfield
Nathaniel Stringfield, Housekwake's founder and leader, has done it all — drums, vocals, emcee, music arranger, music director, and band leader. Growing up in Pittsburgh, PA, Nathaniel and his siblings took to the road at a very young age as the Stringfield Family. Their song Stringfield Hustle placed 99 on the Billboard charts (and No. 1 in the UK) and touring with such notable artists as the Bar-Kays, the Temptations, Three Dog Night, the Commodores, and many others. In Boston, Nathaniel has played with Albert King, Tavares, Charles Neville, and the Zamir Chorale (Jews & Blues) -- just to name a few. Nathaniel is also the music director for the group New Image, a band fronted by the vocal duo of Al Newton and Earl White -- an affiliation that goes back more than 15 years. Nathaniel directed their shows at major casinos in Connecticut, New York, and Biloxi, Mississippi. New Image has continued their long relationship with Nathaniel and they continue to make music together as New Image with the Housekwake Rhythm Section. Whether separately or together, it is a powerhouse of energy, music, and dancing.

Nathaniel's three gospels of music are (1) Rehearsals; (2) Working hard -- because hard work can beat talent when talent refuses to work hard. (3) Entertain them!
