Strange Case is a band based in Thousand Oaks, California encompassing genres
of alternative, surf, and, indie rock. Strange Case formed in 2015 when members
Mikey Netka, Trevor Smith, Zane Vandevort, and Shane Hewitt all met at
Newbury Park High School and went to the same music school, eventually leading
them to develop a sound unlike any other band, which soon became embraced
throughout Ventura and Los Angeles County
In 2017, Strange Case released their debut studio album titled “Wasted Time”

their third album.
Strange Case continues to perform across the west coast delivering a unique
experience to their fans.
Mikey is the lead vocalist behind Strange Case as well as the rhythm guitarist. He is 20 years old, however still enjoys super heroes and has an unhealthy addiction to flaming hot cheetos.
Zane was born in Northern California and is the lead guitarist of Strange Case. His guitar style spans an array of genres and influences. Besides playing guitar, he enjoys surfing, skating and recording much of the band’s music.
Trevor Smith was born in Thousand Oaks in 1998 and has been playing drums since five years old. Trevor’s style varies from rock to jazz, metal, ska, punk, and everything in between. He attends Cal State University, has a french bulldog named Meatball, a passion for history and geography, and is well known for his unique style which influences the band’s music.
Shane is the lead (and only) bassist behind Strange Case. We think he lives in Newbury Park and he might have a cat.
