In a Mendocino Town
'I think the world needs something new and is waiting for it to happen,' says II Big drummer Ken Ingels. 'I believe there is going to be a comeback of sounds like the ones classic rock had to offer, because it's so close to life as we see it still. With some luck and hard work, we could be it.' And the best part is he's right. II Big is the sort of band that you can easily imagine throngs of fans singing and dancing along to, soaking in the classic rock vibe that these guys play like brand new. As evidence, II Big is currently offering it's fourth full-length album, In A Mendocino Town. The songs exhibit a sort of timelessness that makes them familiar yet refreshing. They recall the raw energy that classic rock fans have been enjoying for years, and yet they are filled with a sense of energy and vitality that makes them seem as though you have never heard anything like this. However they do it, the II Big formula has proven itself to be successful over the course of numerous releases, extensive touring, and a steady flow of praise from both fans and critics. Along the way, II Big has shared stages with such classic rock favorites as Foghat, Blue Oyster Cult, Loverboy, Grand Funk Railroad, Joe Walsh, REO Speedwagon, Ted Nugent, Jeff Healey, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, and Styx. But they are far from done, and the band will be playing a variety of shows in support of it's lastest effort. This is jump in the car and rock down the highway music. If you like classic rock sound with a shot of country and blues, you will love this. Is their sound II Big? Nope, it's just right. MusicDish.com.
