Along the Road is an acoustic folk/rock band comprised of members Paul Kranz, Pete DeBlasi, David Keller, Andy Lefko, Fred Sparks, Ryan Huff, and Scott Johnston. They enjoy an active performance schedule as well as collaborations on compositions and recordings. They sometimes perform with the entire band and other times as a smaller acoustic ensemble with vocal harmonies.
The band has released two albums, The Days Draw Close to Christmas and Enjoy the Ride.
One of Along the Road’s songs, The 9066 Express honors Japanese-Americans who endured internment under Executive Order 9066 in 1942. The song recently drew the attention of the Seabrook Community, and the band was featured in the Seabrook Community’s 75th reunion celebration this summer.
