Blue Highways play an artful blend of roots-rock, blues and country-flavored original songs, as well as select covers from the classic rock songbook.  The band includes co-founder Bob Scrabis on guitar and vocals. Guitarist Gordon ‘Bunker’ Strout gives the band its distinctive, driving lead guitar treatments, while bassist Kenny Ramos and drummer Don Stoll provide a solid rhythmic foundation for their unique, soul-filled melodies. The band’s sound is at times reminiscent of the Allman Brothers, the Who and the Rolling Stones with some raw country and blues elements thrown into the mix.
