Spike and the Impalers

by Christina Butcher for OLY ARTS

Spike and the Impalers, the classic-rock, alter-ego band comprising radio hosts Spike O’Neill and Bob Rivers of The Bob Rivers Show on KJR (95.7 FM), brings pure entertainment to the stage. Along with Rivers and O’Neill, the Seattle-based cover band includes Scott Adams, Steve Hanna, Jeff Kathan, Susan Kendall-Morais, Manuel Morais and Lynn Sorensen. Spike and the Impalers started playing together in 2002 after O’Neill and Rivers held auditions for the band across the Puget Sound area. The group is best known for its “Twisted Tunes” parody and tribute songs. Its self-titled debut album was released in 2009. The popular morning radio program that launched it, The Bob Rivers Show, was broadcast for 25 years in Seattle before ending in 2014.
