B.I.G. (Brothers Igniting a Groove)


Vocalist, Lead Guitar.


greetings guitarist,

if you're looking for an established working old school funk/R&B cover band, then we're looking for you.

we are B.I.G. (Brothers Igniting a Groove). we're based out of LA/Orange/San Diego Counties and gig mostly in the south orange, north san diego, and riverside/temecula areas. we're a 5 piece band (bass, guitar, keys, drums, lead vocal), and we're seeking a skilled guitarist/vocalist to slide into our guitarist position. the band was formed back in 2001, we have a loyal following, and prior to the COVID-19 shutdown we gigged every weekend. we're all working professionals with day jobs in a variety of professions, playing the funk because we love music that makes you groove. but make no mistake, B.I.G. is one of the premiere funk/party bands in SoCal and our show is tight. our schedule is starting to get populated again as things begin to open up.

we invite you to check out our live performance videos here:

as well as our most recent shelter-at-home performance here:

and if any of this sounds like something you'd like to be a part of, by all means give us a call...
