The Strike will inspire you to get your groove on at the Noordapolooza

You might remember The Strike from their Provo origins, when they played at the Velour and opened for Kelly Clarkson at Stadium of Fire.

Now, you might recognize their music from television talent shows including America’s Got Talent and Dancing with the Stars. Or maybe you heard their hit “Human Right” on the soundtrack of the Netflix smash To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. They’ve also opened for Macy Gray and Journey, as well as playing a two-month residency at Quincy Jones’ bar and lounge in Dubai on a personal invitation from Jones himself. They spent a month in China playing at a beer festival, and not long ago, actor Zachary Levi (Shazam) posted about “Human Right,” which is exciting in itself. 

“That was a pretty big thing for us,” frontman Chris Crabb says. “The song, and being in To All The Boys... put us on the map in a way that we never had been before.”

The band now considers LA their home base, and they have big plans to continue making their music a priority, starting with more touring and getting their name and their sound to a broader life audience. They have a new EP, “Bad Kids,” coming April 5, as well as plans to return to Utah May 24-25 and June 1.

“Playing in our hometown and being a part of opening up The Noorda is exciting,” Crabb says. “It’s always fun to be in Utah County, where the band started, and where people have some band loyalty and get excited to see us. They can sing along, recognize us, that kind of thing. It makes the energy even higher.”

 

This one’s for the students – we’re breaking in the newest building on campus with a live DJ and music by The Strike. Don’t miss a roundup of the best local eats and a late night at The Noorda.
