Brother Big Bad
Defined by searing guitar licks, solid drum grooves, thunderous bass lines, witty lyrics and memorable pop hooks, the Brother Big Bad sound is at once unique and interesting. Their influences are as far reaching as their ambition- including such diverse acts as: Maroon 5, Dave Matthews Band, Led Zeppelin, John Mayer, Weezer, James Brown, Ben Folds, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Barenaked Ladies. BBB is driven by the creative forces of guitarist/singer D.J. Phillips, bassist/singer Andy Carroll and drummer Matt Weaver. Their past experiences include having an original song in the top 25 on the CMJ charts, opening for national touring act Jump Little Children in Nashville, Tennessee, participating in the Cabo Wabo Battle of the Bands at the Hard Rock Cafe in Memphis, Tennessee and being invited to perform at the Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati, Ohio. The members of Brother Big Bad have also the unique privilege of performing in theatrical venues nationwide in such productions as: The Lovely Liebowitz Sisters, Schoolhouse Rock Live!, The Medora Musical, Honky Tonk Angels, Beehive, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline, Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes and Tony and Tina's Wedding. The band members are working together through refreshingly upbeat and musically explosive live shows to carve their own niche in Minnesota and beyond.
