Taking their name from a mythical phoenix-like songbird in Filipino folklore, The Adarna [pronounced uh-darn-uh] are the first band to ever coin their genre as “Jet City Rock,” due to their proximity to Seattle’s Boeing Field.
Five years out of the gate and The Adarna recently completed their 7th national tour titled the Dollars & Dignity Tour
, which includes their performance at one of the largest hard rock festival in North America– Rocklahoma
. The band has been touring relentlessly in support of their most recent album, How Perceptive
. In Dec 2015 – Jan 2016, they were honored to perform internationally for the US troops in 5 countries in SW Asia as part of their Project Gratitude Tour
. Appearing locally at Boeing’s 100th Anniversary celebration, Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, Lakefair Festival, Burning Man Events, Rockout ALS Fests, and Wounded Warrior Benefits. This high energy group is not shy to co-align themselves with movements and organizations they believe in.
Strangely Alright is a quirky,colorful band of brothers that create rock sprinkled with some electronics and a lyrical message to be who you are and that love is the answer. The peace and love vibe along with some crunchy guitars and pretty harmonies give a sound of that has, as Rockford Rowley from The Weekly Volcano says, “an undeniable emotional appeal. Ringing, triumphant chords and lyrics that allude to conquered tribulations immediately make the music relatable to everyone.” And time can have a tricky way of beating people down and telling them to forget who they wanted to be and who they are. The fact that some members of the strangely clan are in recovery brings to mind the reality that people can find what was once lost.
