"Around Minnesota, snow flies and folks try to cope"

…Strange Neighbors in town

With a full house of stranded travelers under their roof and the night's usual karaoke and poker activities cancelled, officials at the Ramada Inn in Albert Lea tapped into an unexpected weapon Thursday to get through the night: a stranded band from Iowa.

Strange Neighbors was on its way to a gig in the Twin Cities when the snow forced the group to pull over and spend the night at the hotel, said Ramada Inn director of sales Traci Erickson. The band was among about 200 guests that filled the hotel's 79 rooms to capacity, she said.

“They were ecstatic to have the band not get to Minneapolis," Erickson said. "That was a hit.”

"The Promise of the Live Band"

“Strange Neighbors excels at a gentler musical texture, anchored by the effective twin-guitar attack of Cobb and Nic Doak. Listening to Comfort Me, it’s abundantly clear that this is a band that can really command a room in a live setting, able to dash off a trim, well-structured four-minute song or go off on a dizzying 15-minute jazz odyssey………The CD is filled with sparkling musical moments: the sadly yearning guitar lead of “Fire,” warmly expressive vocals, some sterling Allman Brothers Band-style guitar interplay. Comfort Me is never short on grooves and hooks, and overall it’s a winning effort, buoyed by music that’s danceable, fun, and stimulating, casual but also sophisticated.”
