The Spike Drivers - Spike Drivers (1965 - 68)

The original Spike Drivers were together from 1965 to 1967. The founding members included Mary Carolbrown-vocals, Sid Brown-guitar, Ted Lucas-guitar and vocals, Richard Keelan-guitar, and drummer Steve Booker. Larry Cruise replaced Steve Booker in late 1965. The name of the band came from a song by Mississippi John Hurt called the Spikedriver Blues.

The group began working in clubs in the Detroit, Michigan area and shared the bill with performers such as Joni Mitchell, Phil Esser, and Del Shannon. The band traveled to New York City and landed a recording contract with Warner Brothers Reprise Records where they put out two 45's featuring "Strange Mysterious Sounds" with "Break Out The Wine" and "Often I Wonder" with "High Time."

The band also showcased at many clubs in the New York area with the high point occurring when they opened for Eric Burdon and the Animals at the Rheingold Central Park Music Festival in 1966.
Ted Lucas left the band in 1967 along with Richard Keelan. Together they formed The Misty Wizards.
