The Strangers formed in August of 2002 and continued to perform consistently for over a decade. In addition to playing some of Metro Detroit's most respected venues like the Crofoot, Shelter, and Emerald Theatre in headlining roles as well as support roles for bands Collective Soul and Better Than Ezra, the Strangers maintain a rigorous schedule of dates at the area's most popular bars and clubs. Vocalist/guitarist Danny Runey, drummer Josh Cyccone, and bassist Jeffrey Hughes channel their collective passion for U2, Ryan Adams, the Gaslight Anthem, and the Pixies into their originals and utilize that same energy into crafting one of the more unique catalogs of cover music one will find in Metro Detroit.

Notable venues:

The Crofoot
- Ballroom
- Pike Room
- Vernors Room
The Filmore
The Shelter
Emerald Theatre
Detroit North American International Auto Show House Band for Volkwagen 2011-Present
