Today we bring you another band page that is long overdue, and that is from the Taylorville-based 90’s but now rock group Stick People. Sure they are from Taylorville, but we love this band as if they are one of our own. We hope you do too. If you head over to the band’s newly created band page right here, you can stream their newest song “No Fun” and also find out a little more about the band. Stick People will be playing here next on July 22nd along with RASH and Undone, and they will also be playing Black Sheep Fest this year on August 5th!
