We’re a Country Blues band from Cincinnati, OH mixing Bluegrass drive, Honky Tonk swing, Old Time fiddling, Rockabilly riffs, and whatever else spurs our inspiration. We meld it all together with traditional vocal harmonies, tight arrangements, and hot picking, all the while maintaining a strong focus on lyric writing and story telling.

The songs are stories of travelling, love, temptations, heartbreak, family, banjo pickin' tobacco spittin' women, gas station sushi, and so much more. We've released two albums, an EP in 2014 and our new record, American Dreams, which came out in May 2018 to very positive reception.

"American Dreams shows what could be a promising future for Joe’s Truck Stop...I highly recommend this album to anyone looking for a good traditional country record with some killer banjo playing that really sets this band apart."
- Gary Hayes Country

"American Dreams is vibrant and vital. I have a strong suspicion that American Dreams will be there at the end of the year when I recap the best of 2018."
- TwangriLa

We've played at numerous festivals, live on television and radio, and have appreciated world wide radio play from terrestrial stations in the US to Rockabilly Worldwide's 24-hr. Rockin' Therapy Radio in Europe.

Joe Macheret (Cincinnati, OH), bandleader, also in The Tillers, has also lent his instrumental skills on stage and in the studio to JD Wilkes and the Legendary Shack Shakers, Rachel Brooke, the Urban Pioneers, Wayne Hancock, Woody Pines, Lucky Tubb and the Modern Day Troubadours, Lenny Lashley, and many other musicians and bands. Through Joe’s Truck Stop’s touring effort and Joe’s work as a sideman with several touring bands, Joe’s Truck Stop has a following that spreads throughout the United States, as well as numerous other countries.
