This is a band that has been waiting to get "back together" since the 1950's and 1960's. Rockabilly Hall of Fame Member George "Butch" Scaife formed the core of a band called the Highway 49 Band about 6 years ago. The band's focus is on blues-based reproductions of old and new blues tunes. Members of the Highway 49 Band are Larry Pruitt, Lisa Rowland, and George Scaife. With almost 100 years of performance talent on the stage, you will be hard-pressed to keep your seat during their show. Some of the tunes may be oldies but they are definitely goodies after the Highway 49 Band adds their collective and talented touches to the art they create.
As one fan so aptly posted on Facebook recently “When you’re an awesome band, you draw crowds just to hear you play. But NO ONE can bear to sit still, you make people want to dance! That is a terrific feat, only the best bands can do that. I applaud you and love your music.”
