Officially formed 4 years ago in Chicago, and with roots dating back to the mid 90′s Strange Arrangement is a progressive jazz funk rock hybrid with an emphasis on lyrics, songwriting, and compositional sections. Utilizing out of the box time signatures, left of center harmonies, and catchy melodies Strange Arrangement has quickly become a must see act in the Midwest, making their move from bars/clubs to small theaters/music halls in just a few short years. Aptly dubbed happy progressive funk, Strange Arrangement draws on influences from 70′s rock, modern day jambands, folk, and jazz legends. A Strange Arrangement show will take its audience through a myriad of different sonic landscapes based on the philosophy of creating a moment in time, weaving the idea and art of improvisation carefully through their collection of original material to make each performance a unique experience for their audience and themselves alike.
With the release of “Polygraph” their 2nd full length album in four years on January 18th, 2011 and making waves in the Midwest festival scene in 2010 with appearances at Summer Camp, Hoxeyville, Rootwire, and North Coast, Strange Arrangement fans, appropriately named “Strangers”, have continued to come out to their shows to be a part of their ever evolving sound. 2011 will find Strange Arrangement stretching farther away from their home base of Chicago and making their way from CO, to NY, to FL as more and more “Strangers” find their sound and live performances an exhilarating and fresh alternative to the jamband genre.
