Welcome to the web page of Musician/Vocalist John Grubb.

John Grubb (Flash),  was born in Cleveland, Ohio but moved to Gallipolis, Ohio in the early 70’s. He has been playing Guitar since 1972. Some call him a compulsive musician as he has to always be playing something or playing somewhere.

John plays a wide variety of styles on several different instruments, sometimes at the same time.

He plays various styles of acoustic guitar such as Finger style, Flat-picking, bluegrass, Celtic, and “Old Time” music. On the Electric Guitars John’s solos are played at lightning speed. His first band gave him the nickname “Flash” due to the flash of his hands flowing across the neck weather using a pick, ebow or slide. John also plays keyboards, mandolin, fiddle, Banjo, Ukulele, Bass, Drums, lap and hammered Dulcimers, harmonica, Bouzouki, and is currently learning the uilleann pipes.

He has written a few songs, all of which have received air play.

John’s vocal harmonizing ability comes from the many years early in his career when he was singing Gospel with his family, sometimes on live radio and T.V.
