Playing Folk Punk with immediate impact, StrawDaze is a six-member band from Mantua (Italy). Two years after the activity as cover band, in 2011 they started to make their own music.
Banjo and tin whistle together with electric guitars, bass and drums create an original and captivating sound, that avoids some clichés of the genre. The band moves up, playing many shows and making dance and jump the crowd of listeners.
On March 31th 2012 their first self-released EP “Senza Rotta” came out and was later voted on a web poll as Mantua’s record of the year. A new start for a band which already had the opportunity to play in big festivals (Gods Of Folk, Irlanda In Festa, Brintaal Celtic Folk, Festa di Radio Onda d’Urto) and to play as opening act for important bands of the punk (Punkreas) and folk (Flatfoot 56, Folkstone) music scene.
