INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indianapolis band traveling to a gig in Johnson City, Tennessee was stranded for more than 13 hours in Kentucky due to road conditions. 

Endless Summer Band has been posting videos about their experience on their Facebook page. They have even created some new songs. 

In a post they said, "After more hours stuck than actually traveling from Indianapolis for our gig tonight in Johnson  City, TN that we are so desperately trying to make, we are struggling to stay positive. Low on fuel and food. We're down, but not yet beaten. #bandlove."

Well, after 11.5 hours of waiting on the stopped interstate, we WERE moving thru snow covered, but plowed county roads towards London, KY after being diverted off the closed I-75. We were following along a parade of 18-wheelers and cars along this route to try to get back on the interstate south of the wrecks. But now thanks to some over zealous trucker who HAD to drive too fast for these roads, he or she..jack knifed and we are dead stopped AGAIN just outside the Daniel Boone National Forest on US-80! No way to turn around. Half a tank of gas. The saga continues friends.....#jonasclypse2016
