Introducing: The Big Day Band

Without even releasing a single track The Big Day are making their presence known with packed venues, sold out gigs and now a signing by none other than the Marshalls Live Agency. Having only gotten together properly in October, this powerhouse group is off to a roaring start.

This four piece is an amalgamation of former bands, a revitalised enthusiasm and a burning desire to get back into performing live. All of the guys expressed a desire to start something new at the end of last year and that was how the band was born. Their new chapter together began at a gig in Edinburgh’s Sneaky Petes, opening with the perfect choice of ‘Fashion Statement’. From that point onwards, these guys have taken the Edinburgh and Glasgow scene by storm with audiences wholeheartedly supporting their new style and direction.

A feat achieved by only the likes of Joesef and Lewis Capaldi, the band have gone on to sell out gigs despite having not yet publicly released any of their music together. Frontman Ryan has explained that the recordings are there and ready, they’re just waiting for the right time. Looking however to releases by previous ventures made by the guys, it is clear that this work will be worth the wait. Just this week they announced that they have been picked up by none other than Marshall Live Agency, a longtime dream for all of the members. There’s no doubt that releases will be just round the corner. Right now, they’ve explained that gigging and playing live together is the priority; with plans to support at St Lukes in Glasgow (sold out unfortunately!) it is exciting to think about what is next for these guys.

The connection between the four guys is undeniable. Their chemistry onstage is palpable and you can sense when they perform that they really truly feel what they do. Their sound is fresh, funky and brings the perfect blend of musical craftsmanship and fun. Each member brings something special to the stage and together they sound like nothing else out there at the moment. Front man and Ryan is the embodiment of charm and has a stellar voice to boot. Leo, bassist and baby of the group, is a master musician and effortlessly brings their sound to a whole new level in a double denim suit. Drummer Matt has an energy which is infectious and brings the crowd to their feet. Guitarist Rhauri is suave, naturally cool and brings the melodies to life with style and prowess. Bouncing off each other, their love for what they do is undeniable. Whatever they do next, we will be waiting excited.
