Polished Edge: ‘Southern Strangers’ to headline all-day music fest
Sprung straight from the small-town, blue-collar depths of South Central Texas, the “Southern Strangers” band has emerged as one of the region’s most influential acts. Their unique sound merges Southern rock, country, and Americana in a way that perfectly complements their high-energy performances.
The band consists of five members that combine individual style and influences to form a sound that cannot be labeled or categorized by anything but “original.” Matt Anderson of Elmendorf plays lead guitar, Tommy Baird of Adkins plays drums and harmonica, Chad Anderson of Dewees handles acoustic guitar and vocals, Anthony Moy of Poth plays electric guitar, and Pony Hill of Blountstown, Fla., plays bass guitar.
With the release of their debut album, “Middle of Nowhere,” the band continues to push on in their journey as a band with a story to tell and something to prove to anyone willing to listen.
See them at StrangerFest, the area’s largest all-day music festival, Saturday, Aug. 25, from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the Kicaster Country Store at the corner of F.M. 3432 and C.R. 324 in Adkins.
