Our Story

Big Tow is a well-known group of rock & roll veterans who deliver ballads, blues and great melodies. Tight vocal harmonies are backed up by guitar, keys and sax plus a driving rhythm section: Tunes you may not have heard, but won't forget. 


Big Tow was originally a duo: Jay Von Runnen and Scott Lewis, who have jammed together since their college days. 


Now Dave Cogan drums, George Lane plays keyboards, Devin Divecha brings a sax and mandolin, and Michael Reinemer provides the bass line.  Jay, Scott, Dave and Michael have known each other from their very early years in music and have played together in various combinations in the metro DC area. George hails from the Philly funk music scene, while Devin is a multi-talented local. 


Big Tow plays all over the local circuit throughout Virginia, Maryland, and DC covering bands they love. Tunes from John Hiatt, Jason Isbell, Bo Deans, Tom Petty, Crowded House, Steely Dan, Wilco, Ryan Adams and Steve Earle dot their setlists.  Come and listen.
