Original songs and live performances featuring harmony vocals and rootsy, guitar-driven folk-rock and country rock have been the hallmark of the Stragglyrs since the South Bay band formed in late 2000. Members are Bill Mishler of San Jose on drums, harmonica and vocals; Chris Purdum of Mountain View on bass, rhythm guitar, flute and vocals; Tom Thompson of Sunnyvale on electric and acoustic lead and rhythm guitar and vocals; and Hank Van Buren of Sunnyvale, on 6- and 12-string acoustic rhythm and lead guitar and vocals. The band has an ensemble approach with all members writing and singing in two-, three- and four-part harmony. The Stragglyrs have released six albums (including the critically acclaimed "Country Project" in 2011) featuring 89 original songs. They have sold thousands of CDs and have played hundreds of live shows.

Hi Folks! We're putting finishing touches on the Stragglyrs' next album. Only one more session of tracking to do, and most everything else is in the can. Hope to release in time for Christmas.
