No doubt many of you have seen Big Mike Griffin perform at biker events around the country. Big Mike is one bad blues player and singer and hits most of the major biker rally’s every year… performing his biker flavored brand of blues. Like me, Big Mike is based in Nashville and we actually lived across the street from each other for a few years back in the early 2000’s. I had the opportunity to photograph one of his shows last summer and he just recently updated his website with the images. One of them is above and you can CLICK HERE to see a lot more.
Be sure to catch Big Mike in concert when he is in your area or order one of his CD’s from his website below. (You should also check out his award-winning video documentary “Iron City Blues”… a must have for any biker.) He is a super-talented, real-deal blues man. Here’s a sample from Big Mike’s performance at The Broken Spoke a couple years ago.

Bell Buckle, Tennessee is a smallish rural town just south of Nashville that hosts an annual Motorcycle Days event each year. Not sure why the call it Day”s” because it is only one day… but regardless, it usually draws a good crowd. This years event was originally scheduled for May 16th but due to rain it was rescheduled for today. That probably explains why attendance was a bit down this year. Still… it was a good time and I’d guesstimate that there were 250 to 300 bikes on hand.
One highlight of the day was a great performance by Middle Tennessee’s own Big Mike Griffin. Mike is one bad blues guitarist/singer and as usual his performance was superb. For more pics see below.
