Named Best Rising Artist of 2014 by Live Music Daily, Big Something is one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast. A 6 piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. Soaring guitars, synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the ears of such revered Summer circuit stalwarts as Galactic, moe., Robert Randolph, and even The B52s who have all tapped Big Something as direct support.

The group recently released its 3rd full-length studio album - Truth Serum - with the help of Grammy-nominated producer John Custer. Recorded almost entirely live in the studio, Truth Serum, is a great snapshot of the magic the band is capable of creating on stage. The album was named 2014 Album of the Year by The Homegrown Music Network, which makes Big Something the only band ever to win this award 3 times with 3 different releases (2010, 2013, and 2014). Truth Serum is available to stream for free in its entirety at:

The Mad Iguanas
In 2009 ... No Bad Vibes ​The Mad Iguanas were formed by brothers Foster and Daniel Burton with a long time high school friend Charlie Wimmer. The band’s first gig was in late Fall at Allsports in Salem VA, followed by a prime spot on the Happiness and Harmony festival bill. Along with the help of sound technician Jason Hughes, the Iguanas played as a three piece locally in Southwest Virginia. In 2012 ,Joseph Baldwin came on board to complete vocal harmonies. In addition, Luke Hodges put in a two year run with sterling performances on the keyboard. John Trent replaced Charlie on drums but when available Charlie still sits in as he remains a close friend with the band. In 2015 the current lineup completed their first recording at Radford Records with the help of local musicians Billy Huffman and Robbie Carden. The Mad Iguanas take great pride in putting on great shows with a blended mix of original tunes and covers from classic jam bands like the Grateful Dead and Widespread Panic. The Iguanas are much more than band mates; they are a brotherhood that enjoy their time together on and off the stage. This is apparent in their music whenever they perform.
