Strop Conspicuously Not Invited to HSB 2016

The Band Strop Oakland.

Oakland's favorite band, Strop, did not receive an invitation to play at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 2016, and they are deeply hurt and feeling unloved by the event organizers.  Says Paulette, one of Strop's members, "Neither Mark nor Mark nor I received any invitation to play at the festival this year.  They pretend like we don't exist, and we work so hard and sacrifice so much and are so well loved by Americana and Roots Music lovers that it's obvious that festival organizers are going out of their ways to not invite us."
