Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

The Strange Familiar

When: Sat., Jan. 24, 8 p.m. 2015

Tonight's show with Akron pop band the Strange Familiar should be a real treat at the band will be paired with a string quartet made up of area symphony members. The band will perform songs from its latest album, The Day the Light Went Out. In the past, it's had its songs appear on TV shows such Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, The Biggest Loser, Cedar Cove and Secret Life of the American Teenager. "We’re really busy writing new songs," says guitarist Jeff Andrea of the band that also features his wife, singer Kira Leyden. "[The single] 'Rain' has started to get quite a bit of attention at Christian Radio — so we’re going to be releasing a new single to that format sometime in the next couple months. Some doors have been opening in that world lately and it feels like a natural fit for us — we’ll see where it goes." Andrea and Leyden have also been providing music of the youth ministry at their church, Immaculate Heart of Mary, in Cuyahoga Falls. And recently, Lifeteen, a national youth ministry program, has included The Day the Light Went Out in its May 2015 subscription materials being sent out to 1500 parish youth groups across the country.
