Big Boss Man is "funk, soul, and rock & roll." We specialize in 60's and 70's classic rock with lots of danceable party music to get people up on their feet and having fun. A four piece professional band with over 12 years of experience playing together - everything from smaller private parties to extremely large corporate events and festivals. We're on-time, volume-conscious, and provide our own professional sound and light system.

Imagine this scenario:

You approach the open door of a local club, and the music gets your attention. Actually, you felt the rhythm section as you opened the car door, but now that you're inside the club you get the full experience. From a modest stage blasts a song that you love, but never gets any radio airplay, and the band is cookin' through a furiously groovy rendition. Powerful, soulful vocals season a musical stew of guitars, bass and drums through a variety of styles ranging from blues to soul to classic rock to funk and back again.

But one thing is different: these aren't the same old songs you ALWAYS hear from cover bands. These songs are more eclectic and imaginative and the crowd responds with enthusiasm, dancing and grinding within arms length of the stage as the room just keeps getting hotter. Sound familiar??? If not, then you haven't been out to see BigBossMan. For over 12 years, BigBossMan has been “layin' it down” in various clubs in the Richmond area, and has developed a loyal fanbase by playing the songs you love, but rarely hear on the radio. Doug Bilski (guitars/vocals) explains: “John and I had played in different classic rock bands previously, and we knew each other pretty well. We share a lot of the same ideas about what a band should be - just the right mix of the classics that you love to hear with a sprinkling of some unexpected but exciting tunes as well! We enjoy finding some of those lost favorites and performing them live.” John Hunt (guitar/vocals) adds: “Our secret weapon is our rhythm section (Michael Maher on bass and Greg Handakas on drums) ... they're super funky, lowdown and right on time. Mike and Greg make it easy for Doug and me to shift styles, grooves and tempos all night long."

A typical show blends a variety of influences into 3+ hours of sweaty, soulful musical energy that does not disappoint. You can dance fast and you can dance slow, or you can just tap your foot and drink beer at your table all night. Regardless, you will hear great old 70's soul and funk, mixed with classic rock, authentic blues, and sweet 4-part vocal harmonies. Chances are you'll come back again...
