Why hire The Big Lewinski?
The Big Lewinski brings the greatest music of the 90s to life at your event. With a broad coverage of the decade, The Big Lewinski can deliver all the defining elements of the decade, from Pearl Jam and Nirvana to Hootie and Alanis, throwing in the occasional theme from a 90s movie or TV show along the way.
The core of the group has been playing together more than five years, and with four classically-trained musicians that also sing, expect the music to be great and the harmonies lush.
Whether it's your 20-year high school reunion or a neighborhood block party, The Big Lewinski brings the party -- and all your favorite tunes.
Hailing from Raleigh, NC, The Big Lewinski is made up of some of the East Coast's finest first-call musicians doing what they love -- playing the music they grew up with. More importantly, we're four PROFESSIONALS who know you want a strong musical performance and not logistics hassles. We take care to bring everything we need (except electricity) -- we provide the sound system and lights and sound engineer (if required or by request).
Hal Haygood, after years of playing lead guitars in bands from Arizona to the East Coast, has stepped up to the microphone for his second time in the saddle as lead singer and front man. If his powerhouse vocals don't floor you, his wicked guitar licks and drunken hippie dance moves will.
Matt Pressley has been impressing local audiences with his guitar work for years. As the lead shredder for local acts "High Fidelity" and "Bottom Dollar Blues Band", Matt's paid his dues in 80s rock, classic rock, and down-home blues. He's also contributing vocals for The Big Lewinski, which is a special treat, since he sings like a bird in a gilded cage.
David West, or as we like to call him, "Sarge", is a bass player with chops and more chops. A product of nationally-renown NC Central's jazz program, David can lay down those funky lines and sing at the same time. David also plays trumpet and french horn in the Army band and spends his free time gettin' down with his bad self.
Shane O'Donnell handles drumming duties for TBL and contributes the occasional vocal as well. Armed with a degree in Music Business, Shane took the music world (read: bars in Illinois) by storm playing bass in a midwestern country band through most of the 90s. TBL gives him the chance to relive the rock of that era -- and to remember when he had hair.
