The Strides

I must admit to liking a bit of garage especially when it has some Hammond thrown in which is what The Strides are all about! The Strides consist of Chris Cawdron: Hammond Organ; Si Hunt: Lead Guitar; Gray Smith: Bass Guitar; Mike Lobo: Drums and featuring:-Rob Taylor: Vocals and Vicky Stuart: Vocals.

Try out The Strides:

Forged from a fusion of the past and present and as finely tuned as Jackie Stewart's Lotus, The Strides now sport a fresh new look and raunchy new sound with the addition of ex- 80's Psych outfit "The Nerve's" Hammond Grindster.This is "Vanilla Fudge" meets "The Small Faces" who then all pop down the pub for a Watney's and chaser with the two Jimies (Hendrix and Smith!)Playing a groove fuelled set of retro tunes and tracks lifted straight outta the 60's, The Strides dare you to take a pinch of Psychedelia and travel with them to Blow up a Go-Go.....

Update Dec 2007:- The Strides newest addition Vicky Stuart, (Northampton's own Julie Driscoll!!) applies her strong vocal talents to bring you the sounds of the late sixties. Vicky has been mainly a solo acoustic artist and writer (
Visit Vicky Stuart's Page) but is equally at home with full on backing tracks supplied by The Strides. Singing a selection of the hippest retro numbers from artists including Julie Driscoll, Sharon Tandy and Grace Slick, Vicky will be appearing with the Strides at selected gigs throughout the year.
