What's New!

Changes all around

its still BiG!

Well, we had a great idea... but it tanked. we thought that if we named our band something short, simple and catchy; that it would be easy to see, hear and find. But we found out that it was NOT.  At ALL. So, we  decided that it needed to be more available to the digital masses, yet not a departure from the original take on the name. 

Since we had to tag ourselves as "@thebandbig on social media anyway, it would make sense to just follow that line  the new name. Especially since we had spent TENS of dollars promoting that name, and media presence. 

So, we give you -- our most illustrious fans -- insite into the BiG!gest news of 2021 so far...

We are now and forever know as "thebandbig"





"small" is 10 short stories. Taken together, the first 8 also have a larger narrative arc. The last two -- a bit of a push off into new territories. We hope that they can all live on, and what was once personal (and hopefully universal) for us can become universally personal for you. But when asked "What's your genre?" The BiG! boys were stymied. Can you hear the influences? -- Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, John Denver, The Who, The Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, The Cure, U2. They are all there, and more, in bits and pieces. Ones and Zeros. But what is it? The Blues? -- yes, but not entirely. Classic/Mainstream Rock? -- yes, but not really. New Wave/Alternative/Goth/Grunge? -- why not? It has elements of them all. It can be anything you want it to be. Yes, you, the listener. You get to decide. BiG! is Gary Hawthorne -- Broken Vocals and guitars, Adam JR Stoffel -- Drums, Cajon, Percussion and Vocals, and Bryan McKenzie -- Bass and High Fashion. Thank you for listening.
