About Us:
"The Strokers were the best bar band Richmond ever had." So sais almost every club goer in the Richmond area in the 1980's. The Strokers got their start playing Rolling Stones' songs in the clubs and bars of downtown Richmond, Virginia during the heyday of the Live music scene, the 1980s. Scott Curnow, the flamboyant singer/frontman, had Mick Jagger all but cloned. Dadion Lester, guitar, held up his end of the show by playing a style of lead guitar that came from growing up a big Rolling Stones fan. Greg Jones and Rusty Simmons were the powerful and tight rhythm section, and Tim Brammer also on guitar. The Strokers used to PACK the bars and college nite spots up and down the east coast. Wherever they played it was slammed to the walls with not only locals that knew of them, but friends and fans making the road trips from Richmond and surrounding areas. They opened shows for Atlanta Rhythm Section, Leon Russell, Pat Travers, The Guess Who, Steppenwolf, and many more, and consistantly recieved better press reviews than the headliners. With a huge lightshow, and the second largest P.A. system of any band on the east coast circuit, it was a incredibly ROCKING show. The Strokers proved to be very talented songwriters and this only increased their following. The only time taken from the road was to record material to shop. They showcased in New York every month, and came very close to landing deals with several major labels. In 1996 Scott and Dadion got back together for a reunion tour and began writing and recording again in New York. In 2004 they released an album entitled "On Your Back" recorded at Stormkloud Studios,combining older and new original material, and one Stones song "Dead Flowers". "Intercontinental Cuisine", "Save Me", and "Crush Me" recieved moderate airplay on local radio, and is currently recieving airplay on cable, internet, and specialty radio around the world.

The Strokers CD Review; RADIO BASILE, ROME, ITALY

Strokers' Album Review; Radio Basile, Rome, Italy THE STROKERS - ABSOLUTELY INTERESTING FIVE PIECE ROCK/GLAM, ROLLING STONES VAGUELY INFLUENCED BAND FROM RICHMONG, VIRGINIA, USA - I MUST SAY THEY ARE PRETTY ORIGINAL AND INTRIGUING, NOT THE SAME OLD ROCK STUFF FOR SURE! NICE VOICE SINGING, WITH QUITE PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS BACKING, INTENSE AND REALLY CATCHY TUNES. THEY HAVE THEIR OWN TRADE MARK AND "ON YOUR BACK", THEIR REMARKABLE ALBUM HAS STRONG PERSONALITY. DIG ALSO, AMONG THE OTHERS, THEIR SONG "INTERCONTINENTAL QUISINE". NOTHING TO WAST AT ALL! FROM 1 TO 10: 9 - I LOVE THE STROKERS!!
