The Stampeders were a Canadian act who began as The Rebounds in 1965. The name change came a year later, but chart success both in the U.S. and their native land eluded them until 1971 when "Sweet City Woman" took North America by storm. It hit #1 in Canada and #8 the U.S. It was also named Song of the Year at the Juno Awards, the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys.
Contrary to popular belief, The Stampeders are NOT a one hit wonder in America. Their cover of "Hit The Road, Jack" featuring Wolfman Jack dented the U.S. Top 40 (as in #40) in 1975.
The Stampeders broke up in 1977, but reformed in 1992 and continue to keep an active touring schedule around Canada. Find more on the Stampeders website here. And re-live their heyday @ Everything Oldies below.......
