Big Gigantic’s Massive Return to New York City 2/16


The sounds of sexy sax and banging drums filled Terminal 5 this past Saturday as Big Gigantic took the stage. This sold out show generated plenty of buzz and excitement and absolutely satisfied all that hype.

The Colorado duo came on around 11 with full force. Think of their style as a delicious cocktail, part jazz, some hip-hop, throw in a bit of dubstep, some electro and voilà! A bit of something for everyone! It was practically impossible not move your feet once Dominic Lalli started ripping it on the saxophone and Jeremy Salken began shredding it on the drums. The blend of the live music with the electronic made the crowd sway and jump endlessly. The smooth Jazz hits the soul, the bass moves the feet, and the beat sings in the mind. The energy in the room was only something that could be described by being there. Though the show was completely sold out, it felt rather personal and intimate.

Big G dropped some album hits as well as a couple that are yet to be ID’d.  They even tossed in various renditions, like Aloe Blacc’s “I Need a Dollar.” If there is one thing to be said about the two (besides that they’re ridiculously talented) is that they love their fans, A LOT. They made several shout outs and the love bounced from the ceiling to the floor. Immediately after they played their last song, the crowed uproared with the demand of an encore. Big G did not disappoint and came out for one more tune. What also did not disappoint were the visuals for the encore, which included cats shooting laser beams causing mayhem. Good music + groovy vibes + cats with laser beams = a night not be forgotten.  We predict many more sold out shows for this unique pair. Big ups Big G!
