THE STRANGE TONES

THE BAND

Hailing from an undisclosed secure location in the Pacific Northwest, this highly entertaining and talented combo puts their unique and original stamp on American roots music. The band has twice received “Best Contemporary Blues Act” and “Best Electric Guitar” Muddy Awards from the Cascade Blues Association. Their appeal also extends well beyond the blues community with a distinctive style that defies easy classification. It's the sound of Fender amps set up at the crossroads of blues, rockabilly, surf, and vintage R&B. It's the sound of Slim Harpo meets Link Wray, Magic Sam meets Wanda Jackson, and Howlin’ Wolf meets the Mod Squad. It's the sound of raw meets tight.

CRIME-A-BILLY

THE STRANGE TONES BRAND NEW CD

CRIME-A-BILLY? WHAT THE HELL IS CRIME-A-BILLY???
Crime-A-Billy has erupted from the great Pacific Northwest! Spawned like a crazed salmon in a river of whiskey and microbrew this CD swims against the currents of mainstream music. Your iPod may try but The Strange Tones and this new CD defy a quick and easy classification. Well schooled and respected in the blues scene, the band has created its own sound by blending blues, rock-a-billy, surf, swamp, R&B, and even a sonic tip of the hat to the likes of the hardboiled Sam Spade and Phillip Marlowe. The result is a combustible one-of-a-kind album...

QUOTES

They Said What?
"The Strange Tones are a fine funky band that plays rockin' roots music with the fervor of true believers. Their sound is stripped of gratuitous flash because these guys know Jimmy Reed's secret, that one note is better than a hundred, especially if it's the perfect one".
John Foyston, THE OREGONIAN
The Strange Tones turn in a rip roaring, label defying bunch of great tunes”
PORTLAND BLUES.COM
"Best bass man I know."
