Stratford Arms

 Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Stratford Arms brings a high-energy rock show with a twist of soul to the stage. Stephen and Andrew lay down a tight musical foundation, Larry's powerful vocals and Faneza's impressive guitar playing make Stratford Arms a band you will be hearing more from in the future.


Larry Washington/Mic Larry (vocals), Faneza Izabella (guitar), Stephen Gooden (drums) and Andrew Meeks(bass), have spent the past few years combing the stages of live music venues in major cities and college towns throughout the Southeast. Singer Mic Larry solidified the band after being blown away by left-handed lead guitarist Faneza (Gibson's SG Girl) when she sat in for a few songs during a performance at a quaint Atlanta dive bar more than three years ago. Bassist, Andrew merged into the band shortly after. Drummer, Stephen is the most recent addition to round out the band.

The high energy group is known for getting crowds on their feet and has entertained in large numbers ranging from local music festivals to rocking out sold out arena's supporting major music artist. Lead Singer Mic Larry is hard pressed to find an audience he cannot impress, while the incredible musicianship of Faneza, Drew and Stephen blissfully stun fans in masses with each show.

Stratford Arms prides itself on its' ability to not only to branch out into any genre of music, but to gain fans in any environment. Stratford Arms recently wrapped up their EP which was produced in Nashville by renowned writer, producer and musician Blue Miller, who has written songs for the likes of Gladys Knight, Isaac Hayes and who has most recently been linked to the success of Blue October and India Arie.

Stratford Arms is a down to earth band making real music. The talent level is surreal and after the show your first impression will cause you to think twice about the future of modern music.
