Spiff Wiegand is, in a word, eclectic. He plays over 20 instruments and composes in genres as diverse as Hard Rock, Classic Country, Jug Band, and Pop. He has been compared to artists like Hank Williams, The Mountain Goats, Buddy Holly, Hot Hot Heat, Devo, and Josh Ritter.
While Spiff often performs with a backing band, he is perhaps best known for his one-man-band concerts. Juggling up to seven instruments simultaneously without loops or technological trickery, he creates complete textures that are as unexpectedly musical as they are visually impressive. Spiff is also part of The Whistling Wolves, New York City’s premier American roots band.
