Back in 1966, England won the World Cup, Harold Wilson was Prime Minister, and three young teenagers formed a band at Christopher Wren School in London. Their average age was just 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. They signed to Transatlantic Records within a year. Stray appeared at their first Reading Festival in 1971, and made their television debut on BBC-2 the same year.
Fast-forward to 2017. Stray are still going, still featuring original lead guitar hero, Del Bromham. Today’s Stray are a melodic mix of Hard Rock and Heavy Blues. The albumValhalla won the prestigious GRTR 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.
Stray are one of Britain’s finest Classic Rock acts. Catch them at Margate and do yourself a big favour…
