The Hot Rails

Front man Ken Janssen did not start performing until past the age of 30, making his debut with 60s garage band The It*Men. Though a late bloomer, the experiences have given him a tremendous well to draw from lyrically. While the well may be deep, the lyrics are not the meandering prose you may expect, but straight forward songs about good times and loose women. In a short time since Janssen's first release (Greatest Its: 2004) the stage antics have become legendary. Every performance is different, and every show is another story. With Janssen, it's always about the story. The band features two lead guitarists, David Paolucci and Jamey Rychak. The two leads shred seamlessly through the hard rock structure provided by drummer, Charlie Druesedow (Dreadful Yawns, It*Men, New Lou Reeds) and bassist Nick Licata. If the It*Men were the penultimate 60s garage band then The Hot rails are the penultimate 70s hard rock band. This is not to say that it is a throw back or an homage, but more a continuation. Currently the band has finished recording its second LP "Single Entendre" and will be touring the Midwest, East Coast, and heading to SXSW 2010 to promote their new album.
