The Strangers – Strangers Available (2003)

FrontCover1The Band started to make music in April 2003 with Woodstock-Songs, fascinated by the performances of artists like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.They played many concerts in small/ medium Clubs and in summer 2003 a support for Doro Pesch. Already in December 2003 they decided to make a LIVE-Recording with their Woodstock- Program. The Album “Strangers Available” contains 16 Songs, including one first self- written track: released in April 2004, right one year after the start-up. The band is engaged in many charity- projects: it is the band´s philosophy, that one can help remedy many abuses with music.In January ´05 they organized a big Charity- Concert for the tsunami- victims and recorded live with many other artists the song “Anywhere”,written by The Strangers -a real Band- Aid- Project.They sell the CD to help Asia without any profit. For the NFL- Club Rhein Fire Eyreen Sue wrote the song “Fire”, released in April 2005. The CD Release was in the LTU arena – performed together with Doro Pesch and with an audience of about 30.000 listeners: the guitar being used during the recording they sold by auction and donated the proceeds 100% to Adopt- A- Minefield.UK.

This is one of all these thousand cover bands in the world … and to listen to this album means fun !

So I dedicated this blog entry to all semi-professional bands in the world !
