Together since 7th grade, the members of the Virginia-based pop/rock band Okay Samurai have always seen the band as more of a hobby than a job. It's just four friends having a great time playing music and hoping that the excitement carries over to you. They started in 1993 as "Geui", 1996 as "Second Nature", and settled on "Okay Samurai" in 1999. Okay Samurai won "Best UVA Band" in the IUMA Musicomania 2000 competition, "Virginia Band of the Week" on the Music Link of Virginia and "Best Frickin' Band Ever" by one of their friends.
Since the band's post-college career paths have taken them in several different directions, this site now serves as an archive and is occasionally updated with new musical pursuits by its members. Thanks for visiting!
