Maurice the Fish Records and Jazzbones announce the epic reunion show of one of Tacoma’s finest bands in the 80’s, Strypes on Saturday, May 24th! Opening the show will be Vividal and the critically acclaimed power pop of Strangely Alright.


The Strypes reunion will mean double duty for singer-songwriter Regan Lane! Regan has been a mainstay in the Seattle-Tacoma music scene with Baby Knockors, Strypes, Groovy Times In Babylon, BrokenNess and now Strangely Alright, who have just started recording a new CD of their catchy power pop!


Regan’s had placement and airplay of his heartfelt pop and rock songs on numerous TV shows throughout the US, including A&E’s Biography, NBC Sports, VH1’s Top Twenty Countdown and Best Week Ever, Anthony Bourdains’ No Reservations and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew along with many other cable and network shows. After Vividal opens the night, SA will do a set of their jangly power pop before the reunion show of Strypes!


For nine years, from 1981 to 1990, Strypes rocked the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Formed by best friends, keyboardist Robert Richholt and guitarist Jesse Seales in the late 70’s; the Strypes lineup was completed with the addition of singer-songwriter-front man Regan Lane and drummer Andy Morrison. And filling out the bass playing duties in the bands final incantation was Bob D’Angelo,now of Mechanism! This hard rocking and hard partying band released 3 singles and a full-length album “The Difference” , embarked on several successful tours of Japan along with extended stays in Korea, The Philippines, Guam and hit all the hot Los Angeles clubs while on numerous successful cross country tours across the US. With all great bands there is a certain chemistry that only certain band members can create and Strypes are no different. For only the second time since the bands demise in the early 90’s, the original members of Strypes will reunite for a one time reunion show.


The band would love to talk about the twists and turns of the journey that has brought them all back together one final time.’
