The Strums, Great Northern, tonight

The band began with a song. One song, that demanded to be written. Singer Jai Sparks’s home was severely damaged in the devastating 2011 Brisbane floods, and at his lowest he turned to music. With friend Eric Mewburn he recorded Oh River, a brutally honest song about loss and hope.

It’s a refreshing honesty that’s evident in all the band’s music, and as Jai rebuilt his life the band grew as well, first adding members Dan and Enrico, and then growing musically to become one of Brisbane’s best-loved live acts, and one of the only in the country to make going to see a rock show such damn good fun.

With their brand of foot-stomping, hip-shaking rock ’n’ roll the Strums have won over audiences all around Australia, while supporting King Cannons or on their own headline national tour. See them at the Hotel Great Northern on Friday.
