The True Strays. Delta Rock & Roll Revivalists. Bristol brethren born for blues fuelled, foot-stompin, late-night hoedowns. Contemporising good time rock n roll with a southern twist.
Taking influences from Chess Records’ Muddy Waters and Little Walter, British Invasion R&B, Grunge and modern day blues artists; all levelled out with a serious dedication to writing a great song.
Having spent four years touring with Sam Green and the Midnight Heist and having founded their own Smokin’ Juke Joint venue at Fieldview Festival, the boys are no strangers to bringing a room full of people into a Friday night frenzy. Whether leading festival line-dances or sparking late night revelry, the True Strays bring 21st Century Rhythm and Blues with anthemic choruses and a healthy measure of the heat of the swamp.
Their energetic and joyous live shows have already made them a must-see headline act in Bristol. Their brand of good time rock n roll earned them slots at Shambala, 2000 Trees, Swingamajig, Wildfire, Fieldview, Cock & Bull and Valley Fest in 2016.
