McGuffey Lane is a country rock band from central Ohio. In 1972 founding members Steve George Reis (bass/vocals) and Terry Efaw (steel guitar/gut string guitar/electric guitar) were a duo called “Scotch and Soda”. When they added Bobby Gene McNelley (vocalist/guitarist) they renamed themselves McGuffey Lane after the street of Steve’s Athens Ohio home. As their popularity grew they added Dick Smith (drums/vocals) and Stephen “Tebes” Douglass (keyboards/harmonica/vocals). In 1977 McGuffey Lane started playing at Zachariah’s Red Eye Saloon and soon became the house band. At that point they added John Schwab (vocalist/guitarist) who was opening for them as the sixth and final member of the original McGuffey Lane.
