Route 35 is a country band from Tiszaújváros, Hungary.
The band was formed by the former members of Alexa Country Band in 2017. The fiddler is István Bíró, behind the drums: Viktor Ferenczi, the bass guitarist is Norbert Gerőczi, the lead singer is Ilona „Lonci” Kovács. The acoustic guitarist and singer is Frigyes Orliczki. With Endre Balaton (solo guitar) and Géza Nagy (pedal steel guitar) the new formation was created.
The name of the band comes from the main road with the same name, which has to be crossed to get to Tiszaújváros. The 7-member band keeps rolling on the highway of country music, which is, in fact, quite rugged. Route 35 jammed through Hungary, they played in Slovakia, Poland, but they are returning guests in Austria and Romania too. Besides the songs of the great American stars, the band plays Australian and Hungarian tunes as well. Their goal is to deliver the feeling of the genre to the Hungarian people by writing own songs and translating the classics.
They changed their name and their lineup, but their soul remained the same: „Baby let’s ride on Route 35 and play something country!”
