What started as a duo by the name of “Scotch and Soda” in 1972, has now grown into a six-person country rock band known as McGuffey Lane.

After adding guitarist Bobby Gene McNelley, vocalist Steve George Reis and guitarist Terry Efaw, the group renamed their new trio after the street of Reis’ home in Athens, Ohio. When their popularity continued to grow, they added drummer and vocalist Dick Smith and keyboardist Stephen Tebes.

They became the house band for Zachariah’s Red Eye Saloon in 1977 and soon after found their sixth and final band member, vocalist and guitarist John Schwab.

McGuffey Lane released their first self-titled album in 1980 and quickly became a national touring act, traveling the country with Charlie Daniels, the Allman Brothers, The Judds and the Marshall Tucker Band.

They released three more albums in the early 1980s before returning to their Ohio roots to play at festivals, fairs and clubs.

After a disband, reunions and member changes, McGuffey Lane returned to Zachariah’s Red Eye Saloon in 2001 for a reunion performance, which would kickstart a McGuffey Lane rebirth.

Today, McGuffey Lane is still going strong with three original members performing more than 30 concerts annually.
