A 6 piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. It’s no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast. Soaring guitars, synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the ears of such revered Summer circuit stalwarts as Galactic, moe., Robert Randolph, and even The B52s who have all tapped Big Something as direct support.

The group’s most recent release and 3rd full-length studio album – Truth Serum – was recorded with the help of Grammy-nominated producer John Custer. Cut almost entirely live in the studio, Truth Serum, is a great snapshot of the magic the band is capable of creating on stage. The album, which also features an appearance from DJ Logic, was named 2014 Album of the Year by The Homegrown Music Network, which makes Big Something the only band ever to win this award 3 times with 3 different releases (2010, 2013, and 2014). Truth Serum is available to stream for free in its entirety at:

“An expertly-played, eclectic mix of rock, funk, jazz, reggae and more … One listen brings on an urgent desire to see this tremendous six-piece tear it up live.”
– Relix Magazine

“This group is the full package. Their live performance gives fans a very nice balance of all things great about music. They’re adept improvisers of their instruments, but have a very solid lyrical and songwriting foundation.”
– Live Music Daily
Marvelous Funkshun
Marvelous Funkshun
Marvelous Funkshun is a band steeped in tradition that cut its teeth in bars and clubs across the Southeast while developing a signature sound with influences ranging from psychedelic rock, blues, funk, sacred steel and jazz. The dual leads of Sam Robinson and E-Jay Trice on guitar and pedal steel take the listener on a roller coaster ride atop the funky and dynamic rhythm section featuring Will Bagley on bass and Zach Landon on drums. While still a young and modern band, the members have shared the stage with blues greats such as Bob Margolin (Muddy Waters), Delbert McClinton and Tinsley Ellis, jazz flute legend Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band), Tim Reynolds, the Roots, Perpetual Groove Artimus Pyle (Lynyrd Skynyrd), the Gap Band, Pimps of Joytime, The Lee Boys and the Nth Power (members of Soulive, John Brown’s Body and Warren Haynes Band.) This funky southern psychedelic blues trip will keep your feet moving all night!
