"I wrote and never posted it! Strike the Sun"

Strike the Sun drew the headlining spot and rightfully so. If there was a hall-of-fame for local musicians these guys would all first ballot inductees. Myra Mains, Steel and Stone, Bad Mother Trucker, Loop 13, the list goes on... The five guys in the band are all business but Chris Hulsey is maybe the most talented singer between Shreveport and Dallas. Seriously, it's nice to see a band with an honest to God front man. They had about 90 minutes to win over the crowd but it didn't take that long. Jager shots started showing up after a few songs and I'm sure that nobody in the band managed to drive themselves home because before the set was over at least six more rounds were delivered to the stage. STS played something like ten hard rockin' original songs and threw in a few covers to keep the crowd into going. When these guys get their album finished look out!

the wolf



“Well I am the wolf, that wears the clothing of the sheep…” This lyric is a fitting description of Strike the Sun. The five guys that make up the band are the nicest most laid back people that you could meet, but when the curtain goes up and the amps hit full song you’ll want to hide your girl and leave your poser wanna be rock star gear at home. This Longview, Texas based hard-rock band means business. Bassist Eric Allen and drummer Guy Farrell deliver a solid one-two punch as the backbeat, never getting lost in the mix or missing a beat, while frontman Chris Hulsey delivers powerful vocals in perfect pitch with the riffs of guitarists Mike Boring and Jarod Hodges. Strike the Sun has a set of original music that wouldbe right at home next to Clutch, Fu Manchu, AC/DC or the Cult in your MP3 playlist. But they aren’t afraid to mix in rock standards by Led Zeppelin or Ted Nugent. The band will self release their debut album this fall on CD and digital formats and is available for limited engagement booking by request.
