Fort Wayne’s very own Left Lane Cruiser,  appearing Feb. 6th at Reggies, rock out with their own rural, Indiana version of guttural,  blues rock. Their 6th CD was just released late last year, and IE’s Kelley Simms gives a glimpse of what to expect tomorrow night…

Fort Wayne, Indiana’s two-man Left Lane Cruiser play whiskey-soaked blues/rock with a Southern-fried boogie-woogie groove on its sixth studio album, Rock Them Back To Hell.  Joe Evans (guitars/bass/vocals) and Brenn Beck (drums, harmonica) conjure up a bevy of harmonica-laced foot-stompers with slithering slide guitar solos, distorted, raunchy guitar riffs and fuzzy vocals accompanied by an arsenal of percussion instruments ranging from trash cans and paint trays to hubcaps.

The energetic duo romp and stomp at a powerful pace on the ten tracks that grace the disc while exuding a relentless electricity that makes it easy to forget the “band” is really just two guys blasting away. Rock Them Back To Hell really puts the meat on the table. (
