Gypsy Rug Burn
The Big Spank "Funky-Latin-Punkish-Ska-Pop". The Big Spank has been performing across the southwest since 1998. The Big Spank transitioned from playing mostly weekend shows (while maintaining day jobs) into living gypsy-style in a converted school bus and touring full time, spreading their love in the form of feel-good tunes that beg, borrow, and steal from ska, rock, soul, R&B, hip hop, death metal, polka, Norteño, and other genres. Their stage antics and high-energy live performances are not soon forgotten. The Big Spank includes Bert Lujan (Drums), Mike García (Guitar/Vocals/Accordian), Retzen (Trombone), Chris Tickner (Bass Guitar), and Javier Sandoval (Guitar, Vocals). Full length self-produced CD's include "Gypsy Rug Burn" 2007, "Random Acts of Spank" 2004, and "Waiting For Retzen" 2001.
