Since 2007, the New York six-piece The Big Takeover has been fulfilling the mission implied in their name: packing clubs in the city and upstate and building their brand and reputation on the road and in the studio. A far cry from the pop-punk of American ska, The Big Takeover take their cues from Desmond Dekker and the first wave of Jamaican pop music as well as from the soulful energy and sophistication of Motown. At the center of this tight, grooving ensemble is the live-wire singing and deceptively subtle songwriting of the Jamaican-born NeeNee Rushie, a powerhouse performer who makes the audience feel like accomplices more than spectators. Traditional and experimental, The Big Takeover’s global blend reveals deep fluency in reggae and world music, hints of soul, and a pop classicism that is their own thing entirely. In New York’s musically hopping Mid-Hudson Valley, they are only the band around that is welcomed and honored at all the major national-circuit rooms: the indie/experimental haven of BSP in Kingston, the jazz and blues gem that is the Falcon in Marlboro, the classic rock mecca of the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock. The Big Takeover packs them all. On the road, the band has played over 500 shows, sharing stages with The Original Wailers, Jefferson Starship, Eek-a- Mouse, the Slackers and more. The band was recently selected to participate in a Converse Rubber Tracks Session in Brooklyn NY, and released their fourth full-length record, ‘Silly Girl’ at the beginning of 2017- to critical acclaim. A national tour to celebrate its release is in the works.

Originally from the Hudson Valley in New York but now based out of Knoxville, TN, Jonny Monster’s original mix of acoustic blues and hard dynamic electric guitar are not to be missed! Having opened for greats like Johnny Winter, Lucky Peterson, and Booker T. Jones, Jonny Monster has headlined his own shows down the Eastern Coast from Burlington, VT to Naples, FL, as well as released a self-titled record, and an exciting follow up “Bad Times Before” with a full band. With Knoxville’s own Graham Waldrip on bass and Garrit Tillman on drums, Jonny Monster’s high energy aggressive guitar style continues to captivate audiences and make JMB a must-see act.
