Stray + Pearl Handled Revolver
Stray date back to 1966 when three young teenagers formed the band whilst attending Christopher Wren School in London. Back then tehir average age was 14. Within three years they’d become regulars on the London club circuit, performing at such venues as Shepherds Bush Goldhawk Club and Covent Garden’s Middle Earth. In May 1969 Stray supported The Groundhogs at Southall Farx Club and signed to Transatlantic Records within a year. They appeared at their first Reading Festival in 1971, and made their TV debut on BBC-2.
In 2015, and still featuring original lead guitar hero, Del Bromham, Stray are a melodic mix of Hard Rock and Heavy Blues. Valhalla has won the prestigious GRTR.com Album of the Year award. A regular star turn at the annual Cambridge Rock Festival, Del Bromham’s Stray mix scintillating guitar playing in a power trio format with melodic anthemic songs such as “All in Your Mind” – covered by the million selling Iron Maiden.
Opening the night are Bedfordshire’s highly respected Pearl Handled Revolver. Since their arrival on the music scene they have not only built a strong national following but signed a deal with US-based King Mojo Records, released their first album to critical acclaim and have just released their eagerly anticipated follow-up: This Mountain Wait. Pearl Handled Revolver play with passion, they play with heart and on stage they deliver exhilarating, psychedelic live performances.
