"The "Big" Don Band"

"Big" Don Spurlin and his band are matched and seemingly born to deliver workingman's blues, from a countrified perspective. Big Don belts out his songs with the same intensity that he puts into his unique playing style. For evidence test drive "Mr. Hyde" a tune Spurlin describes as, "kind of a quit-drinking song," which honors (and immortalizes) his friend and fellow musician Jerry Eubanks' run-in with an eighteen-wheeler. So, at what point did "Big" Don know he was destined to rock? "Four," he says flatly, and when asked to explain the answer further, one realizes why he might have hoped for the initial, short response to suffice. "My mother and grandmother got me on the table and we lip-synced to 'Elvira,' " says the bespectacled bluesman with a smile. - Athens Banner Herald
