Howdy all you winter shut ins!
Riding season is just around the corner! Hope all of you have your bikes repaired and ready for the road. I believe 2012 will be a terriffic year for road trips, rallies and blues festivals.
I have been working on a project with my close friend and associate, Chris Tolfield, on a live recording we did at the world famous Brass Horse last October!!!! It should be available this
Spring by the time we return to New England. It is a compilation of three days of recording, so LOOK OUT!! It’s gonna be KILLER!!!!! Speaking of recording, I am planning a new Big Mike
CD this year. It is still in the planning/writing stage - but I'm hoping for a Fall release just in time for Christmas. All in all, I think 2012 will be a good one to get on the road and make some miles on that “sled.” Remember to ALWAYS look out for your brother and sisters out there.
Until next time, KEEP THE RUBBER SIDE DOWN!!!!!!!!

Happy Summertime ya’all! It feels real good to complain about the heat after all the unusual ice and snow we had in Tennessee last Winter…
We are back at the phenomenal MOUNTAIN*FEST rally in Morgantown, WV at the end of July – come see us at Triple S Friday night or on the main stage at Mylan Park - Saturday at 4 pm.
Remember, the gift of the RIDE is not FREE – we owe it to our veteran’s!!!!
Rock on, Ride Safe, BIG MIKE

Here is a new March already friends! We have a lot of cool happenings planned for 2011 and we thank each and every one of you for supporting us in what we do! We feel SO thankful that we have the opportunity to do what we love, see old friends and make new ones – what a COOL thing! Plus, you know what is just around the corner again – yes, ANOTHER privilege that we enjoy in this great country of ours – the gift of the RIDE!!!! We are looking forward to seeing our extended biker family again in Texas soon and we are back at the tremendous MOUNTAIN*FEST in Morgantown, WV this summer (last time we were there attendance was 70,000)!!! We will be consistently adding more dates so be sure to check back often.

Well, where did the summer go? It’s the last of August and man it flew by. We have been busy on the road, playin’ the blues and enjoying the rally season. It’s been a great year so far and this fall it looks like it’s gonna get even better! We've got some great gigs coming up in Florida, so if you are close to Homosassa, please come and see us on Sunday, October 10th at the High Octane Saloon. It’s the number one place to be on the nature coast of Florida!! And to all of you in Mississippi, we are playing Thunder on the Lake on October 16th so BE THERE!! One more thing, I am now writing a music column for TN Thunder Roads Magazine, so pick up a copy at your favorite watering hole, and if they don't have it, DEMAND IT!!
I look forward to seeing all of you this fall, so ride safe and KEEP THE RUBBER SIDE DOWN!!!!

Happy 2010 to all you Buckaroos and Buckarettes! We hope that everyone had a great Christmas. 2009 was a pretty good year, and we are excited about the 2010 season. A very Happy "Blue" year to you all!!
Iron City Blues has been a great success, and I want to thank you, our fans, for making it a “soon to be” classic. Ya'll Rock!! I will be releasing a new recording later on in the year so keep watching this web site for updates.
Finally, I will also be featured on Charlie Bretchel’s new album. Check out Charlie’s internet radio show, The Bikers Inner Circle, Bikers Inner Circle_new - Big Mike Griffin Band where he features my music! Charlie is the real deal; true biker and great musician. Check him out, you won’t be sorry! He's Big Mike approved.
Please take a minute to thank God for all our blessings and please support the men and women of our military. They keep us safe and free by laying their lives on the line.
God Bless us all and remember, KEEP THE RUBBER SIDE DOWN!!!

Hey there all you Kats and Kittens!
Happy New Year! We are in the Winter doldrums right now as you know, so its a good time to watch a video or listen to a CD. Check out my latest offering on this web site or www.ironcityblues.com
This is the time to do maintenance on your bike and your gear. PLEASE check out your tire pressure and your drive belt after the scooter has been sitting awhile. It could save your life!!
As far as Daytona goes, its up in the air right now. The economy in Florida is pretty bad, but we are looking for a place. Hope to see you there this year. If not, I'll see you in the spring at a show or rally. Let me know if you have, or know of an event you would like to see me at. I'll do my best to book it!
Keep the rubber side down!!!!!!
