Washington, Iowa Car Cruise 

We had a great time performing for the 4th year in a row at the Washington Car Cruise!  We will be back next year! 
We love this band shell and the people in Washington are fantastic!

Gladstone, Illinois Homecoming July 29th, 2016 

Being a part of a band, takes you to many places that you never even knew existed!  Last night we had the pleasure of performing in Gladstone, Illinois - a tiny little town with a population of just over 300 people.  We performed at a little shelter house that sat right next to a carnival!  It was a lot of fun - even the trains that rolled past added an extra level of excitement! 


Back to back Shows 

StraitRun returned to The Big Heart Stage in Minburn on July 2nd, 2016!  We love playing in front of the skating rink where the kids all ride bikes, dance, and skate - what a wonderful little town!  Then we were off to Urbandale for a July 3rd show!  We played in the Lions Park to a wonderful crowd and had so much fun!  What a great weekend for StraitRun!

Party in the Park! 

Hope everyone can make it to the Party in the Park performance!  This will be on the courthouse lawn in Vinton, Iowa on June 23rd starting at 6:30 p.m.!  Here's a short video of last year's performance:  Don't forget your lawn chair!
