Album Notes
Highway originated in The Region, a tough blue-collar area southeast of Chicago where hundreds of bands battle for exposure and gigs. They have risen to the challenge, delivering powerful onstage shows week after week, year after year. Highway has tapped into the primal source of rock music, the blues, and followed its evolution through seminal bands such as The Allman Brothers Band, The Rolling Stones and Cream. Their original music acknowledges their musical debt to these bands without sacrificing passion and freshness.

Highway has further distinguished itself by playing the GABBA Fest in Macon Georgia. They have shared the stage with Jackyl and Lynyrd Skynyrd and played the Tommy Jeans stage at Chicago's Tweeter Center. Their original songs have been aired on WXRT Radio in Chicago and KOOL 101.9 Radio in Indianapolis.

Seeing Highway live, the first impression is that there is no star in Highway- in truth, every member of the band is a born rock star. Vocalist David Varella sings with the passion of BB King, Ray Charles and Greg Allman. Brothers John and Jim Bonick blaze on guitars. Blending their two instruments into one, they invoke Keith Richards and Brian Jones on those great early Stones records.

Tim Dailey's bass- playing is equal parts Bootsy Collins and Paul McCartney- funky and melodic. Drummer Corie Wilcox approaches the drum kit with the swing of Charlie Watts and the power of John 'Bonzo' Bonham. He is the real thing. Classically trained keyboardist Rick Hemphill provides the icing on the cake, and an air of sophistication to the raw rock and roll sound of Highway. All the members write great songs, and all contribute harmonies.

Talented and hard working, yes, but Highway is also a good-time rock and roll band. A Highway show is a party. They bring back the good times when rock 'n' roll songs you could dance to and sing along with wasn't too much to ask.


to write a review

The finest stretch of road to date!!!
By far their finest release to date, Nine Fine Wines delivers the closest thing to Rock n' Roll nirvana next to their live performances. This masterpiece kicks off with Rusted Nail, which tells you right off the bat that you and anyone nearby your stereo is going to get a good ol' fashioned ass kicking by this tremendous sextet. The rest of the album does not fail to amaze by any stretch. A must have!!!
Someone needs to get their management to book them across the country because Chicagoland is getting spoiled by what they do live.


great southern rock band
this is the bands 4th cd and i love it. i was recently turned onto this band on cd baby and bought the cd based on the streamed samples. if you like the steepwater band,black crowes or that genre of music you will love this cd. The other albums take the ride,the black dog sessions and the st ep are hard to find but give it a try. this band deserves more attention than they have gotten.
