It's Never Too Late to Mend
The Stone City Stragglers are a six-piece band from Joliet, IL., also known as Stone City because of the limestone that was used to build the infamous prison walls and other historic buildings. Being native stragglers of Joliet, the name was fitting. Since 2002, SCS has been carving a name for itself in the Americana/Alt. Country scene. Their 2004 release, The Last Resort, gained the attention of reviewers and fans across the U.S. and abroad. With their passionate live show, the band has recently opened for such acts as Drive-By Truckers, Jon Dee Graham, Reckless Kelly, Deana Carter, Caitlin Cary, Thad Cockrell, and followed up Julie Roberts and Clint Black's performances at the 27th Annual Chicago Country Music Festival during the Taste of Chicago in 2005. With new member Johnny Gadeikis on bass, the Stone City Stragglers are looking forward to continued success.
