Robie Godfrey, Vocals

Robie was born and raised in Lynchburg, Virginia. He graduated from Brookville High School then went on to Randolph Macon College where he played football and graduated with a Business Economics degree. Shortly after graduating from college, Robie became a member of the United States Army.

Robie is a fan of many types of music, however, he’s been most influenced by rock n roll. While stationed in Wonju, Korea, Robie joined his first band. Even though in previous bands he performed mostly country music he is most moved and gets the best crowd response with Rock n’ Roll. “I enjoy and consider it a privilege to entertain a crowd and make them forget the world while I'm on stage.”

Robie uses a Telex microphone while performing. He also plays Schecter guitars through a Marshal amp.

David Eubank, Bass

David was born in Baltimore, Maryland but grew up in Lynchburg, Virginia and was a classmate of Robie’s at Brookville High School. David later attended Towson University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Business E-Business from the University of Phoenix.

David was drawn to music at a young age and started taking drum lessons at the age of 11. He later became passionate about playing the bass guitar and bought his first bass in 1988. Growing up in the 80’s, he was most influenced by bassists Nikki Sixx, Michael Anthony, and "Duff" McKagan. David has been with Out of Spite since 2007 and is one of the founding members of the band.

David plays Epiphone Thunderbird basses through a SWR bass amp and Hartke bass cabinets.

Mike Keane, Drums

Mike was born and raised in New Jersey. Mike currently studies Business Management at Central Virginia Community College and runs the entertainment booking agency “On the Spot Bookings.”

Mike’s been playing music for more than 10 years and has played drums in several bands during that time. He is an excellent musician who also plays the guitar. Mike’s playing style on the drums can be described as ferocious and heavy hitting. Mike is most influenced by drummers such as Keith Moon, Dave Abruzzees, Matt Cameron, and Danny Carey.

Mike plays PDP drums with Zildjan cymbals and uses Pro Mark 747B drum sticks.

Mike Lynchard, Guitar

Mike Lynchard was born in New York and has been playing the guitar since he was twelve.

He has played in many bands including Sick N Tired, Frail-T, and other various projects. His influences are Jimmy Page, Slash (if you haven't noticed), and Randy Rhoads.
