The Strange Parade at Oskar Blues - Longmont
The Doors will never be forgotten; their albums have sold over 100 million copies worldwide. They opened the eyes of and woke up an entire generation to new ideas, thoughts, and sounds. Their live shows were theatric performances of music, drama, and poetry. It was more than rock and roll.
But now, more than forty-five years since The Doors first launched into notoriety, their live performances have been lost to history and story.
With a dedication to delivering the same explosive and avant-garde direction, The Strange Parade brings to the modern audience that unique experience of The Doors. With immense passion, the senses are immersed in music, poetry, sounds, and images of the other side. This is more than just a tribute act to the music: it’s a revival of the energy.
There was something else in a Doors concert. There was something mystical and magical in the air. Experience that trip with The Strange Parade. Break on through and celebrate creativity, imagination, and the strange with Colorado’s finest tribute to one of rock and roll’s most important pioneers: The Doors.
"There's something very special and satisfying about being able to witness the music of The Doors live (especially if Jim Morrison was seriously dead by the time you discovered the music!). The experience not only resonates with one's soul desire to know what it may have been like to see Jim Morrison waggle his leather pants around a stage, but the musicianship of each and every player gives this listener eargasms. It doesn't matter if you saw The Doors in person or just wish you had, giving yourself and those you love, who love music, the gift of seeing The Strange Parade may simply be the very thing you need to make 2013 the best year of your life!"

"I went with a friend to see Strange Parade on a Thursday night at a small, half-filled nightclub in Lafayette. I was curious and wanted to support a local band. If they ever perform to a less than capacity crowd again, I'd be very surprised! Lead singer, Matthew Barham, practically channeling Morrison, and an amazingly tight band, created an energized, psychedelic, dance filled evening that none of attending that night will likely forget. I suspect much bigger things are in store for this band."
