The Bigsbys provide a fun, family oriented atmosphere! They also play acoustically depending on the venue.
Their eclectic range of 50s rock-n-roll, Americana, old-school country and rockabilly positively augments the life at any event; after all, nothing takes the place of live music... We will even take special song requests for any event once event is booked.
The Bigsbys' provide a powerful melodic tone through professional equipment and stage presence. You will not be disappointed!!
These guys were a hit at my facility. They really know what they're doing and put on a great show. Jeff worked with me on the price before i even had the chance to ask. The guys showed up early, and even played for a little longer than we paid for! 10/10, will have at my facility again. Thanks again!
Response from The Bigsbys:
Glad you and your residents enjoyed the music. We appreciate the opportunity!
We hired the Bigsbys to provide country music for our 11th annual chili cook off. We had a group of line dancers who needed the band to play certain songs for them. The Bigsbys were awesome and adapted to our request with no problem. They showed up on time and became instant friends. The music was awesome and our guests kept approaching me and saying 'the band is really good'. I recommend the Bigsbys for any event where you want professional musicians and great music. I will be calling them for next year's event.
Response from The Bigsbys:
Thank you for the feedback. It was a terrific event and we were honored to be part of it!!

What to Expect
The Bigsbys are a mature professional band that provides exceptional live entertainment at an affordable price. They are able to produce a full rich sound with a four-piece band which allows them to play in limited space.
In addition, the Bigsbys are respectful, timely and considerate to the needs of the event coordinator. Their work ethic and character will speak for itself.
The original Bigsbys began around 1994 in Whittier, California with four guys that worked together. Their genre focused around 50s rock and roll and rockabilly. The band played together for the next 15 years.
In 2014, the Bigsbys reunited with two original members: Michael (lead vocals/guitar) and Jeff (lead guitar/backup vocals) as well as two additional new members: Jamie (drums) and Eric (bass guitar). All musicians have played in various bands throughout the past several decades.
The Bigsbys' continue to focus on rockabilly, 50s rock and roll, and Americana music. Check out the Bigsbys on their website at (link hidden).
