STRUMBERRY PIE: Strumberry Pie is the Jersey Shore's hottest female acoustic duo, made up of Deedee Montanaro and Laura Catalina Johnson, performing covers and originals. Like Sheryl Crowe meets Janis Joplin and the Scorpions, Strumberry Pie features amazing harmonies and unexpected songs not usually performed acoustic OR by female rock and roll performers. From pop to classic and hard rock, to indie folk and soul, Strumberry Pie brings variety, strong vocals and a whole lot of flare to the stage with every performance.  You can find Pie performing at New York and New Jersey venues such as: The Strand TheaterMolly Maguire'sThe Downtown CafeTasteThe Wine LoftBahrs LandingConnolly's NYCthe Freehold Accoustic LoungeThe SaintThe Wonder BarThe Bistro at Grove, the Dauphin Grill, Bank on Mattison, Heritage Bistropub, The Stone PonyAdam's Beer Garden and more.  Check out our Events page for where we will turn up next!

LAURA: A Pat Benatar wannabe since the age of 13, Laura has been singing for herself and anyone within earshot since she can remember. She spent some time as a guest singer with various musicians before picking up a guitar and striking out to find her own musical path.  Happily, that path led almost immediately to collaborating with Deedee and Laura knew it was a match made in heaven.  Laura plays guitar and sings, but if you really want to see her true talent, give her a tambourine and stand back. ;)

DEEDEE: Deedee had her first guitar lesson when she was in the 4th grade in Texas.  She later moved to Puerto Rico and performed both American and Puerto Rican songs in various venues for many years. Deedee moved to NJ in 1987 and sang backup for "Off Duty" for a couple of years and in the late 90's sang cover tunes with "Wise Guise".  After a 13 year hiatus, (kids will do that to ya) Deedee was challenged to pick up her guitar again and get back out there.  Luckily for all of us, she took on that challenge and hasn't looked back.
