“Forty-five years without a day job” is John Schwab’s cheerful motto, perfectly exemplifying the everyman quality of this seasoned career musician. With his long ponytail, grizzled beard, and his matter-of-course cowboy hat, Schwab put in the work to get where he is today, playing around 200 shows a year. His former raucous country rock band, McGuffey Lane, has been a favorite since the ‘70s, etching Schwab into Columbus music history. Our cowboy hats are off to you, partner.
