What to Expect
We are an energetic band that can rock out or keep it soft. We play hits that are not-so-often heard on mainstream radio
Highway 35 started out as a band called Highway that started in January of 2012. Members Jason Paras and Josh McElwee have been performing in bands together for years. To form Highway 35, they brought in Josh's brother Jeremiah McElwee, joined up with Liam Cetti and added Joe Osuna as the final member. The band has played many notable venues in their career including SOhO Restaurant & Music Club, Velvet Jones, The Marjorie Luke Theatre, Fiesta at MacKenzie Park, Concerts in the Park, and AMPLYFi in Hollywood, CA. In October 2012, the band won "Best Overall" in the Santa Barbara Youth Battle of the Bands in the highest division. The group has recently recorded a 3-Song EP, which will be released in 2014.
