Since their early days playing the Ohio State University campus and their 4 Atlantic Records releases to their succesful independent albums on Lick Records, McGuffey Lane has built their career on music which has been both artistically and commercially successful, leading the group to tours with The Charlie Daniels Band, The Judds, Marshall Tucker and The Allman Brothers.
With record sales of over 350,000, McGuffey Lane continues to have a strong and loyal following.
The 1995 High Chief Records release of McGuffey Lane's Greatest Hits has generated new interest in the band and precipitated the new touring lineup which includes long time lead singer/lead guitarist John Schwab, founding member Terry Efaw, highly sought after Molly Paulken on bass who also produced the new CD, veteran Jerry Cummings on keys, Randy Huff on Drums, and Kevin Reed on Harmonica all featured on the new all acoustic studio album released in June of 2003 entitled "WOOD." The CD contains 14 tracks including several songs the band has played for years but never recorded. It also features 2 new songs from the original drummer Dick Smith who left the band shortly before the band signed with Atlantic Records. Initial reviews of the "WOOD" CD have been very positive. The album was recently added to over eight thousand juke boxes across North America.
With McGuffey Lane's well-known music, such as the favorite hits "Long Time Lovin' You," "Green Country Mountains," and "People Like You" mixed with the band's own brand of humour, both long-time fans and the newly converted are hungry for more of The McGuffey Lane American Music Experience.
