The Stride is a Boston-based instrumental rock and jazz band. We play original music, as well as standards.


The first iteration of The Stride was started by bandleader Justin Satriano when he was studying at Berklee College of Music in 2012, based on his unique sonic vision. With drummer Joel Silloway, bassist Omari Fortune, and guitarist Amanda Andrews, The Stride stays true to this goal.


Combining the rootsy sounds and improvisations of early rock from the 60s with the attention to form and melody that comes from jazz, the band walks the ground between many genres. Throughout, The Stride plays always with a free-spirited sense of exploration within tunes and between idioms.
