When the Fifth Wheel, a local pop rock outfit that took a hiatus way back in 2000, announced it would play its first show in 15 years, guitarist Jeff Koval wrote us an email explaining what he hoped for the band’s rebirth.

“In the ’90s we had the Fifth Wheel rocking, playing big shows from openers at Agora and Blossom to CBGBs, selling out Peabody’s Down Under and the Odeon many times on our own.” He likened the Fifth Wheel's return to a "dream come true."

Koval, who had worked at a local recording studio at the same time, subsequently moved to Nashville and did recording/mixing and producing for many artists and publishers. Since moving back to Northeast Ohio and reuniting with the band’s songwriter and singer, Josh Stone, he’s wanted to pick back up with the Fifth Wheel. Now, the band hasn't just reunited; it's also recorded a new album.
