Huntsville Rock Band
Seminole Strut started as a bunch of friends getting together and jamming in late 2012. These six Huntsville, AL natives had been in various bands growing up, but had never played together as a group prior to the formation of the band. Influenced by a variety of different music styles, they meshed together to forge a unique sound with a modern touch on raw rock and soul music. Backgrounds varying from classic sounds, such as the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, the Band, the Beatles, and the Allman Brothers Band, to the stylings of funk, jazz, blues, folk and heavy rhythms.
