Biography

Strut has been wowing crowds for the past several years with their always-evolving style and unique blend of Ska, Funk and Trance. This young, talented band has quickly become one of the Southeast's hottest and fastest rising acts, with a loyal grassroots following growing bigger everyday. In 2005 the band toured non-stop, playing over 100 shows promoting their sound from cross-country tours to the Virgin Islands and three amazing sets at last year’s Bonnaroo Festival. The new year has already showed much promise as well. Strut has released “Non-Hostile Takeover” and were recently named High Times 'Unsigned Band of the Week'.

Though they‘ve been in the mountains of Asheville, NC since 1999, the group’s cohesiveness began long ago. The members of Strut can thank their airtight sound and musicianship on knowing each other since they were toddlers. The whole band grew up playing together on the famous commune turned intentional community, The Farm (check out www.thefarmcommunity.com ) in Summertown, TN. Growing up at a place such as The Farm set the stage for a wide variety of musical genres they were exposed to. So depending on the night and the crowd, Strut will dip in to their bag of rhythm and pull out whatever feels right for the moment. The Strut sound has been categorized in everything from Funk, to Jam-band, to Ska-Punk. But thanks to their many years together, Strut has merged into an intuitive, super-tight machine wherein no one sound dominates, though one objective does…everyone in the room is moving! Th

With their amazing displays of telepathy with each other and the crowd, Strut is sure to leave you tired and smiling.
