Too Big To Fail


TOO BIG TO FAIL is a High Energy Soul, Funk/Rock, R&B Band. We love classic music with a groove, great vocals and harmonies.

Horns and Keyboards are a big part of The TBTF sound. We take the well written songs of the 50's, 60's and 70's and jam them to a danceable groove.

In the words of Sam and Dave we want the audience to "get up off your seat"!
