Nov. 5, 2018 - We have been super busy with a heavy festival schedule recently and bringing in a new member to the band. We would like to announce Rob Styron as our new Keyboard player. Rob is a New Orleans native who just moved back to the New Orleans area from Denver and has been studying music and has been a music teacher for most of his life so we are very fortunate to have him in The Strays lineup. Rob can sing, play keys and flute and is a great addition to the band. We threw him into the fire with just a couple of weeks rehearsal and we are now finalizing rehearsing our full list as well as adding some songs from his songbook. We look forward to seeing some of you at one of our shows over the holidays and into the New Year!!
Jan. 5, 2017 - As we begin the new year, we want to thank all of you, our friends and fans for all the support over the past six years. The band has grown by leaps and bounds and we have accomplished so many things that far exceeded even our expectations so we appreciate all of the support we have received. We have plans to do many more fun and exciting shows in the coming year and we look forward to seeing you at some of our upcoming events. Soon we will be unveiling our new promotional video all over the internet, make sure you check it out and share it with your friends!
Happy New Year and we look forward to seeing you at our next show!!
July 26, 2016 - This year is flying by and we have been all over from being in a parade in Metairie, out to Slidell,
to the Westbank, to out on the river in Springfield, to a rainy but memorable day in Destrehan to
Downtown New Orleans for Cinco De Mayo. It's been a blast so far this year and seeing all the
familiar faces and meeting new people at every stop. We used some down time in the month of
June to finally record a proper demo to showcase the different styles of the band in our home
studio. The Beatles song "Come together" was really the first song that singer Michael Aaron and
the first members of The Strays rehearsed together that really clicked and made us think this
could be the start of something special so we really wanted to record that one. This song has
been an important part of our set list since the very beginning and still is today. This song
showcases our "rock dat" personality. Next is "Boogie Shoes" which of course showcases our
"dance dat" personality and always gets the dance floor filled. And we are also eager to promote the unique New Orleans sound of "Hey Pocky Way" which showcases our "groove dat" personality.
Please give these songs a listen under the Multimedia link on our page and of course we have
plenty great shows scheduled in the fall and more being added. Click on "Events" for complete show information. If we are not scheduled to play your part of town yet, please request us at your favorite watering hole or festival!!!
