This "Sleepin' In On Sunday" video, originally used for demo purposes, was put together many, many years ago by AJ Caruso using two VHS machines.

Q: Where is the Straitjacket Smile CD you promised?

A: It looks like it is finally going to happen. We are getting all of your favorite SJS tunes recorded and they will be made available in a 2 CD set. There is no release date scheduled yet but the plan is to try to have it out as soon a spossible. AJ Caruso and I have been doing a lot of song tweaking and preproduction. You can possibly expect a few NEW SJS songs as well as a link to some cool downloads and bonus tracks. Check back for more info about this project will be posted as we get there.

Do you have any old pictures of Straitjacket Smile?????
 
 

Straitjacket Smile, formed in June of 1992, was based out of New Orleans, LA, and featured several of Louisiana's top talents. Within a year the band managed to climb to the top of the Louisiana music scene and earned opening spots for such heavy-weights as Kansas, REO Speedwagon, Cheap Trick, Zebra, Lillian Axe and Foreigner. They performed extensively in and around the South East United States promoting and selling out of a six song EP entitled "Temporary Sanity". The band recieved many requests at rock radio stations and developed a large regional following. With addictive, hard rock songs, a high energy show and vocal harmonies reminiscent of influential bands of the the 70's, Straitjacket Smile combined the perfect mixture of sight and sound, melodic rock performance.
