Big Tow blends generations of seminal influences encompassing diverse genres that span blues, jazz, classic rock, creole, rockabilly, punk, polka-thrash, country-gamelon, alternative...."
Okay, not exactly. But wouldn't that be cool in Rolling Stone?
Big Tow was originally a duo: Jay Von Runnen and Scott Lewis, who have jammed together since their college days playing a blend of blues, rock, and alternative with tight harmonies.
Now Dave Cogan is on drums, George Lane plays keyboards, Devin Divecha plays sax and mandolin, and Steven Reiter is on the bass. Jay, Scott and Dave have known each other from their early development years in music and have played together in various combinations in the metropolitan DC area. George hails from the Philly funk music scene, while multi-talented Devin and rock-solid bassman Steven round out a great sound.
Similar personalities and perspectives on life, love, and rock & roll persist over time. Together as a six-man band, Big Tow plays all over the local circuit throughout Virginia, Maryland, and DC covering bands they love. Tunes from John Hiatt, Bo Deans, Crowded House, Steely Dan, Wilco, and Steve Earle dot their setlists. Come and listen.
