November has been very very good to us.
After two rocking shows at Freebird Live and Jack Rabbits, we are gearing up for a weekend at The Roadhouse in Orange Park, we could really use your support.
We are making good progress on finishing our first self produced album. A 4 song demo is already recorded and available by contacting a member or coming to one of our shows. The album will include several nes songs, all of which you can hear at The Roadhouse in December.
Stuart, Peter, Jimbo, and Gerry would all like to thank everyone of our fans that have come out ro our shows. The band is much better than when we perfomred our first gig at Harmonious Monks. The jitters are gone, and we are much tighter. The originals are particularly strong.
We would love to see all of you at The Roadhouse the first weekend of December. If we have a strong enough turnout, they just might invite us all back. This will be your best chance yet to see the band at full throttle. Come party with us and get some "Strange".
This is why we took so much time off from Harmonious Monks. We are performing a mostly original set at Jack Rabbits on September 28th. The doors open at 8pm, music starts @9pm, and The Strange takes the stage at 10PM.
Tickets are $8 in advance from http://jaxlive.com/events/helios-hand/ or $10 at the door. Tell the doorman you came to see The Strange!
Jack Rabbits can be a little hard to find if you have not been there before. It is on the 1500 block of Hendricks Ave. in the San Marco area of Jacksonville. Coming from I-95, it is on the left just past Hurricane Grill and Wings, across the street from The Knights of Columbus, between High Tide Burrito Co. and Green Erth Bistro. There is no sign. There is a box office window next to the front door.
There is a small parking lot across the street, and parking behind the K of C.
This is an all ages show. Beer and soft drinks available at the bar.
See you there Strangers!!
Yes, we are coming back to Harmonious Monks on Tuesday, July 9th at 8PM. We are bringing two new covers and changing our set list a little. After this, we will be back in two seeks on Juy 23rd.
Thanks again to Dennis for this opportunity to perform for our friends and fans. We know that Tuesday nights can be inconvenient for some of our fans. Weekend gigs are in our not too distant future.
See you Tuesday night.
After four shows at Harmonious Monks, we are returning to The Strange Rehearsal Complex and Gentleman's Club. There is much work to do. We are adding songs to our current set list, getting better at the song we already have, and writing some new material.
Thank you to Dennis at Harmonious Monks for your hospitality. Thanks also to DIana, Tina, and Brit for hosting the party and keeping the drinks flowing. Tina also joined us on stage a few times.
If you missed the fun, no worries. We will be out again soon. The Strange is in the process of making contacts with local live music venues.
Thank you all once again for your support. See you soon.
Seeing how some of us haven't seen a stage in 20 years, finding the patience to start a band from scratch has been a struggle. However, we are almost there. Our lineup is set, and we are cleaning up our song list and starting to work on original material.
This has been a fun ride so far. We have gone through two lineup changes since getting together in October 2012. We are currently looking at May for our first gig, but that could change.
We promise you this. YOU will be the first to know when and where we will hit the NE Florida music scene.
See you soon
