Big Riggs Band
Big Riggs Band Facebook
Big Riggs Band’s edgy, modern country music image is hard-core Country! They play modern country, classic country, and their own original music.
Since country must be country-wide, Big Riggs Band figured they should be, too. So, they perform nation wide at night clubs, casinos, country music festivals, and concert venues, and even bars. They offer something for everyone, from the metal-head to the classic country cowpoke. And all of it with a personal touch and in their own inimitable style. Rabble-rousing bass lines and intricate drum patterns form a musical web that holds up a symphony of keyboard, thick rhythm guitar, screaming lead guitar, and multi-part harmonies.
Big Riggs Band are truly a must-see act!
