Spanish For Hitchhiking has played countless shows as part of the vibrant Western Massachusetts music scene since 2001. The band: Dennis Crommett (vocals and guitar), Max Germer (bass), and Dave Hower (drums). Guitarists emeritus are Brian Akey, Dave Chalfant, and Pete Weiss.

Now, in 2018, guitarist Dave Chalfant has returned to SFH, and drummer/trumpeter/multi-instrumentalist Anders Griffen has been joining the band in practice, creating new sounds. More on that as it builds.

The band’s latest album, Night Alerts, was released in 2015 on their own label, Secret Teeth. It’s the followup record to SFH’s 2004 debut The Starling (released on a friend’s label, Captive Ring).

In 2012, they recorded a cover of “El Clavo Y La Cruz” with Black Francis (Pixies), for A TributeTo Repo Man on American Laundromat Records. Black Francis also joined SFH at a show for two songs (watch video here), and Dennis opened a few Black Francis solo shows in the Northeast.
