From San Diego, The Bigfellas write and perform “smartass rock". Piano-based, but aggressively eclectic.
They’re best known for their more humorous tunes such as “I Wish That I Were Gay”, “4:20” and the world’s only golf rap, “On The Green,” all of which are on their October 2008 schizophrenic CD, Chubbed Up. The album's subject matter continues the Bigfellas traditional of mixing up humor and seriousness, giving both halves more bite.
At times The Bigfellas can be identified as piano-based music drawing comparisons to early Ben Folds Five or Warren Zevon. In practice, they're all over the stylistic map with Beck-style jams, 1920 French accordion jazz and straight up rock guitars.
Prior even to their first full-length album, the band has been voted 2006 -AND- 2007 "Best Local Band in San Diego" in the San Diego Union-Tribune Readers Poll. Also nominated in 2009 LA Music Awards for "Album Of The Year".
Available as both a solo act AND as full band
