Woodstock Nation ()
Big House is an American country music band based in Bakersfield, California. Grounded in the Bakersfield Sound, originally, the band consisted of Monty Byrom (lead vocals, guitar), David Neuhauser (guitar, keyboard), Chuck Seaton (guitar), Tanner Byrom (drums), Sonny California (harmonica), and Ron Mitchell (bass guitar). Under this lineup, Big House recorded two albums for MCA Nashville: 1997’s Big House and 1998’s Travelin’ Kind. These two albums produced four chart singles on the Billboard country charts, including the No. 30 hit "Cold Outside."
After the release of their second album, all of the band’s members departed except for Monty Byrom and David Neuhauser. Benny Rappa was then signed as the band’s new drummer, and Steve Vines assumed the role of bass guitarist. The revamped lineup recorded one album for Dead Reckoning Records before disbanding in 2000. The six original members reunited for concerts in 2007 and 2008, and released a fourth album in 2008 Never Ending Train.
