Hailing from San Diego, California, The Strikers sound is a mixture of bands like Motorhead, Gene Vincent, and the Misfits. Joey(guitar/lead vocals) and longtime friend Donovan(drums) were tired of trying to force their musical styles into bands that did not share their vision. Joey and Donovan began writing songs for a straight forward rock band that would not compromise its sound for anyone. Almost by luck they found Rob(upright bass/backing vocals) who also shared their vision. The trio began writing and performing, mixing their own, very different, musical styles into one aggressive “kick-in-the-neck” rock n’ roll band.
