A Little North of the Border

It is a fresh blend of Texas Blues, Rock & Roll, and Outlaw Country with some Tex-Mex thrown in. Think of Hank Williams, Jr. joining forces with Jimi Hendrix.

Band Description
The Jeff Strahan Band is a tight and powerful trio playing “Red Dirt” music. “Red Dirt” was born in the dancehalls of Texas and Oklahoma where hard-core country collided with raw rock & roll. It is a fresh blend of Texas Blues, Rock & Roll, and Outlaw Country with some Tex-Mex thrown in. Think of Hank Williams, Jr. joining forces with Jimi Hendrix.

Biography
The Strahan Band is a hard working band cutting its way through the clubs from Colorado to Texas, including Utah and New Mexico. They have recently shared the stage with John Lee Hooker, Jr. and Chubby Checker and are scheduled to perform with Lee Roy Parnell. The band is starting to break into the festival circuit and has several festival dates this summer. Their sound is powerful and original. It leans more to the rocking blues roadhouse side of things, but you can still hear outlaw country overtones.

One of the band’s crowning accomplishments was to compete as a semifinalist at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January ‘06. This is the biggest gathering of blues bands in the world. The Strahan Band’s success in getting to this level of International Competition boosted their confidence in their original sound and put their enthusiasm at an all time high.

John Handy, Jr. (drummer for John Lee Hooker, Jr. and grandson of blues forefather, W.C. Handy) summed it up best when he said, “Jeff is a great musician and a great person. He has worked hard and with his sense of humor, great talent, desire, and attitude, he will receive the recognition he deeply deserves!”

Jason Smallheer, Marketing Manager, Durango Mountain Resort/Purgy's Slopeside Bar said, "I have never seen a crowd reaction like these guys had and I've seen a lot of bands. We had to actually ask them to tone it down when they did their second show for fear that the crowd may start an all out riot, ha. It was great!” February 2005.

The band has had some great Kudos and good things are happening. However, this is a band that thrives on paying its dues. They are a mature and accomplished act ready for a national platform, but they remain humble and down to earth. They are easy to work with and strive to make sure that everyone (club owners, promoters, fans, sound engineers, stage hands, etc.) enjoys working with them. Strahan says, “We want to be the kind of band you can’t wait to have back in your venue.”

The Strahan Band has released two CDs and is getting ready to release their third. The momentum and fan base is building. Venues and crowds are getting bigger, CD sales continue to increase, and all of the hard work is starting to pay off for these guys. We guarantee you will not be disappointed.

SOLID, BALLADS, DEEP GROOVE BLUES
This is a great album, every song is unique, but still manages to capture that open Texas style of music. The guitar leads, and the drum style are my favorite parts.

Blowin the lid off it
The album is great, from the inspiring country tune of hard to be a cowboy, to the powerfly bluesy phsycotic blues. This band has some real chemistry and originality, and I would say an even better live experience as well. Keep blowin the lid off my mind boys. bravo.
