The Band

BIG Something is an alternative rock group with a BIG groove. A tight six-piece ensemble that brings arena sized grooves to every stage they play. This is funk, fit for the future, featuring crystalline synths, wailing saxes, and guitars that shred established musical boundaries. Their debut album Stories from the Middle of Nowhere was recorded in Raleigh, NC with Grammy-nominated producer John Custer and was named the Home Grown Music Network’s Best Studio Album of 2010. Each song is something special: catchy and charming, layered and soulful, with colorful characters that embody the best and worst in us all. One listen will lead to many and you’ll realize you’ve discovered that BIG Something. Check out their website to stream a new live album: Mad Science: Live at the Costume Ball. Winners of the Home Grown Music Network’s 2010 “New Band of the Year” award and Band Together’s 2012 “Last Band Standing”.
