As rolling waves crash against the shore and surfers fly off their boards, the music of Big Bad Rooster takes Bluegrass music from its mountain home for a vacation by the sea in Huntington Beach.
The Long Beach-based buskers make SoCal Bluegrass music with rapid-fire rhythm in place for their string band songs, transforming Bluegrass into "Blurgrass."
“These boys have been kicking around great tunes in Long Beach for quite a few years now, and while the cast of pickers has changed over time, the addition of Tristan Cole-Falek on the low end has really solidified the music of Big Bad Rooster as can be heard on their debut self-titled album released yesterday.
Fans will hear some great old songs like Poor Boy and Take Me Back along with new tracks and a even few goodtime covers where lead vocalist Michael Solan turns over the duties to his mates. Solan’s mixture of modern lyrical content combined with arrangements that are rich and deep with the history of American Bluegrass style really lend to the authenticity in their sound. Combine these elements with the amazingly talented Barahona brothers, Camilo Barahona on fiddle & Gaspar Barahona on Banjo, and you have a four piece monster of Bluegrass, Americana, and Folk that is super-approachable by today’s generation and also reminiscent of a bygone era. Do yourself a favor and check out a live show with a whiskey in one hand and a beer in the other!" - Shea Newkirk, Long Beach Independent
