"No Reverse Gear is a family of musicians who have been playing feel good, all American, red white and blues biker rock since 2006. Consisting of Rod, Allix and Rodney Knapp, they have established a consistent relationship with fans and club owners throughout Columbus, OH and beyond. No instrument is off the table...to see what I mean, check out a live show! They are always the first to step up if a band is needed for a benefit, and you can always catch them cheering on locals on their nights off!"
“NRG is a band that showcase their true talent every time they hit the stage! No Reverse Gear displays an energy like no other and exudes a true passion for music that moves them and their audience, something that I feel has been lost by so many others, in recent years. Love this band! They "PLAY IT TIL' THE WHEELS FALL OFF EVERY TIME!"”
“Kick-ass, alternative powerblues!”
"The best of the local’s tradition continued as Columbus’s No Reverse Gear started the celebration playing some down n dirty southern jailhouse rock and catchin’ the Southbound railroad train to freedom blues. Backup singer Allix sings the soulful, heartbreaking blues behind lead singer/guitarist/patriarch Rod Knapp, who plays sly with the steel fingered guitar and harmonica. He does his time on stage with a smirk and smile telling us about all of life’s experiences, women and past and present hardships. It’s time to go Home though the Dinal Festination isn’t clear. Life has No Reserve Gear so speed it up and live it up the best you can. A philosophy spoken by a man who’s band is definitely a family affair."
