These folks take their country music seriously and added the Nashville area code to the band name to make sure you know they do. The road they travel is rooted in the cool country from the last 30 years with a few vintage songs along for the ride and a couple of original tunes hitchhiking for good measure. With bandmates Mike Wilcott (lead vocals), Keith Harmeier (bass, vocals), Nikki Honea (lead vocals), Ed Cunningham (drums) and Mark Hamm (lead guitar, vocals), along with the recent addition of Jeff Tate (rhythm guitar), all steering in the same direction, nobody is putting the brakes on this show. After this weekend's Weebles gig, they're booked for Sept. 5 at the Curve Inn with more shows comin' 'round the bend while going full speed ahead and passing everything in sight. Be on the lookout for Highway 615's debut EP currently under construction with a planned completion date by the 2020 holiday season. Drive on, keep on truckin' and make it home safely.

Highway 615
