Last March, before Andy Frasco nearly destroyed the Crazy Horse, we got a taste of a band so powerful, on any other night it would have been the main attraction. It’s already time to look forward to next March when we have the opportunity to take a deep dive into the musical dreamscape known as Big Something.
This North Carolina juggernaut has steadily become one of the most unique and exciting rock bands to emerge from the Southeast. We’re talking about a multi-genre experience where all-encompassing rhythms pair with soaring guitars, E.W.I. (electronic wind instrument), synths and horns. Sounds overwhelming, right? Only in the best possible way! Soulful, haunting vocals are layered on top of this eclectic foundation, giving the songs an impact beyond any ordinary jamband. With a diverse and growing catalog of instantly timeless songs, their full-throttle shows fuse improvisational alt rock with funk, reggae, jazz, electronica and even forays into metal.
After over a decade together, with six full-length studio albums produced by Grammy nominee John Custer, the band is still as hungry as when they started. They’ve left a deep impact performing at the most prestigious music festivals in the country like Bonnaroo, Peach, Lock’n, Summer Camp and Electric Forest isn’t enough for them. They’ve gone so far as to establish their own festival called The Big What? Wait until you see what happens when this six-piece force of nature hits the intimate confines of the Crazy Horse. Make sure to come early for an opening set by The Ries Brothers.
