Pendergast from Lawrence of course (ex Sandoval and ex Rex Hobart and the Misery Boys)

Pendergast describes themselves as a bare bones rock band from Kansas. They are anything but. Featuring singer/songwriter Tony Ladesich (ex of Sandoval and Rex Hobart and the Misery Boys) this band can rock out but can then pull back the reigns and do classic country like the truckin’ song “These 18 Wheels” in which they name drop Merle Haggard.
Bare bones rock bands do not usually sing so convincingly of the working class either like on the song “Union Man”. Pendergast has a full length disc available called The Truth About Saturday Night but for the life of me I can’t find a link to buy it. The band is going into the studio soon to record a followup so keep a look out here for an update.

    I think the band’s name is also a clue to their “bare-bonesedness.” Check out the Wikipedia entry about Tom Pendergast:
