Local Band Walks The Line

January 24, 2013

NEW BREMEN — For New Bremen residents Ben Tuttle, 15, and Paul Luft, 16, life as typical high school students changed entirely when their guitar teacher Jeff King approached them with the idea of creating a country band.

“He kind of put us together,” said Luft, the band’s lead vocalist.

Luft had been taking lessons from King for about a year, then stopped for a year.

Around the time he resumed lessons, Tuttle also started taking lessons from King.

“It was pretty exciting,” Ben said.
