The original Northern California rock of the Stragglyrs is a unique blend of different styles and musical instruments. The band consists of 3 members who swap lead vocal responsibilities to give the audience a wider variety. They are:
Jim Braly - Guitar, vocals
Bill Mishler - Drums, vocals
Chris Purdum - Bass, vocals, toy accordian, kitchen sink
The Stragglyrs started in 1999 as a pick-up band playing just for fun. That''s still their main mantra, but they take their fun seriously.
On Valley of the Shadows, Braly, Mishler, and Purdum put together a collection of their thoughts and commentaries on war, economics, life and love, and a few things in between.
