      Music was good and video was alright, but it sounded like it was streaming through a 28.8 modem.

      Great concert and excellent energy, as usual. Love the new music -- the melodies, arrangements and lyrics are just getting better and better as the band matures!

Von Strantz is a community of storytellers, an ebb and flow of different musicians, exploring the intricacies of relationship, reliance on each other, and being human. Utilizing a variety of instruments such as the guitar, mandolin, and cello, Von Strantz blends harmonies together and completes them with commanding and soulful lyrics. Von Strantz, with their passionate story-sharing, invites their audience into the emotion of each piece.

Jess Strantz, founder of the band and multi-instrumentalist, has a knack of attracting other musically creative people to her. Von Strantz, comprised of as little as one person to more than seven people, is constantly evolving. Kelsey (violin/ vocals/mandolin/viola/fill in bass), Nicolas (bass/upright), Josiah (lead guitar/vocals/mandolin), Kristen (violin/vocals), Isaiah (cello), Alyssa (violin/vocals) are a few who participate in the performing community of Von Strantz.

The sound of Von Strantz is described simply as folk ‘n roll, akin to the tradition of Over the Rhine and the sacredness of The Vespers; the instrumentals stir the soul much like Mumford and Sons. Von Strantz brings their own visceral rhythm to the genre with their songs “Death Or So You Think” and “1793”. Von Strantz released their first self-named EP in early 2013. Since then, the band has traveled extensively, booking more than 150 shows within 9 months, including Paper City Music Fest, Audiofeed, Bridge Music Fest, Horseshow and many a Hard Rock Cafe. Von Strantz is currently creating their first full length, "Narratives" a collection of stories shared in three movements. "Narratives chapter I: troubled souls" will be out March 18 2014.
