Spontaneous Combustion was an American music group founded in 1986. They performed what they called "bluerock", a bluegrass/rock music fusion. The band consisted of Roger Eilts (guitar, vocals), Leo Eilts (bass, vocals), Scott Prowell (mandolin, banjo, dobro, vocals) and Marvin Gruenbaum (violin, vocals). They often were billed as The Spontaneous Combustion Bluegrass Band or when they performed with former members of Total Strangers as Spontaneous Combustion/Total Strangers. They were a popular act at the Sante Fe Trails Bluegrass Festival and the Walnut Valley Festival.
Discography and songs
Their albums included BlueRock, Spontane, Where There's Smoke, Live Embers and Strike Anywhere.
