Friends of Big Spike Bluegrass.

It's been a long and fun run for Big Spike Bluegrass, some thirteen or fourteen years by our fading recollections. We've met some wonderful folks and made many new friends, and had some great times performing all over New England and New York State.

But all things come to an end, and we're sorry to say that we're pulling the plug. Our work and home situations have made our commitment to the band increasingly difficult to sustain. So with great reluctance we've decided to disband (pun intended). Our CDs will still be available on CD Baby for awhile, and we all expect to continue playing music, either informally or as part of other bands.

We want to thank everyone for their enthusiastic support and kind words over the years. We'll see you down the road.

Hi, thanks for dropping by

Big Spike plays and sings bluegrass music the right way. With impeccable vocal harmonies, a powerful stage presence, a sense of humor, and mastery of their instruments, they bring back a sense of the "golden age" of bluegrass.

Big Spike, based in northern Vermont, plays hard-driving traditional bluegrass, with an emphasis on 3- and 4-part harmonies. They feature bluegrass standards and solid original material in the traditional style. Its members are long-time mainstays of the New England bluegrass scene.

Members of Big Spike are alumni of some of the most well-known regional and national bands, including Three Wheel Drive, Smokin' Grass, The David Bromberg Band, The Spark Gap Wonder Boys, Two Chord Jones, and Bob Yellin & The Joint Chiefs Of Bluegrass.
