Big Papa & the TCB was born in the back alleys and seedy after hours parties in juke joints. It's the rough part of town, where the bad folks live. It's your inner child finally kicking that bully's teeth in- Takin' Care of Bizness, pure and simple.
Leading this rag-tag bunch of ruffians is Chris “Big Papa” Thayer, working the mic and cuttin’ heads on the six string with a ferocious blend of styles, including Louis Jordan, Albert Collins, and Robert Cray. Quinton “Dr. Q” Hufferd blazes across the keys, slappin’ audiences upside their heads with blistering speed and surgical precision.
Layin’ down the low stuff, nice ‘n’ cool, is blues veteran Steve “Ice Cream Man” Brown on bass. Ray “Mr. Pittz” Wilson is the glue that holds it all together on the skins with immense power and boyish good looks, keeping the ladies comin‘ back for a closer look.
Formed in 2006, Big Papa & the TCB have taken audiences by storm, “Resurrecting Cool” all across the Western US with their mixture of jump blues, rock and swing.
They have shared the stage with blues legends like Johnny Winter, Fabulous Thunderbirds, James Hunter and Rod Piazza & the Mighty Flyers.
Their latest CD, Nice ’n’ Greazy, mastered by Grammy Award winning mastering engineer, Robert Hadley of the Mastering Labs, is a 9 song, white-knuckled thrill ride recorded live at the Fender Museum and Center for the Arts in Corona, CA. It has been steadily finding its way onto radio playlists around the world.
Big Papa & the TCB’s, Nice ‘n’ Greazy, has been nominated for three 2007 IEMAAwards, including “Best Live Band,” “Best Blues Album” and “Best Song.” Chris “Big Papa” Thayer was also nominated for the 2006 IEMA Awards in the Best Male Vocalist category.
In addition to a sponsorship from Sam Ash Music, Big Papa & the TCB have signed endorsement deals with Heil Sound Microphones and Levy’s Leathers Guitar Straps.
Big Papa & the TCB is the music you hear echoing off the brick walls of the alley as two tough guys begin acquainting your knee caps with "Mr. Lead Pipe."
