What do you get when you put 5 musicians together with over 50 years of musical experience, a passion for the music they play and influences ranging from the Commodores to Van Halen? You get a band that is as unique as its name: Crobar Cane. Driven by a rock solid rhythm section, catchy guitar riffs and soulful singing; Crobar Cane has been entertaining audiences up and down the East Coast for the past 7 years. Having shared the stage with bands ranging from The Outlaws to Kool and the Gang, the members of Crobar Cane live for the music they play and for the people they play for. Their huge, ever changing set list is an A-Z catalog of classic and modern acts and draws all ages for “dead on” covers of Led Zeppelin, The Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, Pink Floyd, and Lynyrd Skynyrd to name a few. Not content to just be a cover band, Crobar Cane has released 3 CD’s of original material and they continue to write new songs. They have the ability to play shows of all original material if need be.
If you are interested in a band that really puts the “live” into “live band” then you will not be disappointed with Crobar Cane.

Here are some things that are being said about Crobar Cane:

“I have enjoyed Crobar Cane for several years now and I was first drawn to then because of their smoking rendition of Freebird, here they totally nailed the dual solos at the end of the song. After that I was in double Les Paul/Marshall heaven.

But what really got me into the band was the songwriting. The songs they write have a familiarity to them that makes them instantly recognizable, yet completely original at the same time. The band should be sharing the stage with the big bands of the world.”

Charlie Hamill Studio Producer/Musician

“Roanoke’s hard boiled, Southern rock superstars are one of the busiest bands in the area – and for good reason. They throw down every time they take the stage, bend strings so hard it’ll make your girlfriend jealous and play so fierce you’d swear they sweat Jack Daniel’s.”

Roanoke Times and World News

“Roanoke’s Crobar Cane returns to the Valley with its signature blend of hard-driving rock. The group, known for its powerful sound, recently played with the Outlaws for their 30th anniversary performance. The band stays busy playing approximately 150 shows a year, mostly in Virginia and the surrounding area, according to singer Adam Rutledge, but hopes to grow in popularity and become known world wide.”
