Huge thank you to all our fans who helped make 2016 such an incredible year for us! Last year was a very busy and exciting year for the band (84 gigs!), as we toured as both Big Head Todd and the Monsters and our side project Big Head Blues Club.
We started out the year with our traditional Winter Tour that took us to 26 of our favorite cities around the US. The tour was titled the Wipeout Turn Tour in honor of our latest single, and we were accompanied by our old friend Mike Doughty and his buddy Scrap.
In the middle of our winter tour we flew home to play the parade for our Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos!!! It was estimated that over a million fans showed up for the parade, and we were honored to help our hometown team celebrate their victory.
After the tour we headed back to the islands for our Big Caribbean Cruise IV which sold out in a RECORD TIME of four minutes. Our cruises have become such an amazing week of fun, sun, music, fans, and friends that we look forward to every single year. Thanks for helping us build this into such a wonderful event!
March took us down south for a run through our favorite Texas venues, (and tacos!).
In May we headed into E-Town studio in Boulder, CO where we recorded our second Big Head Blues Club CD entitled Way Down Inside. We were joined by special guests Mud Morganfield (the oldest son of Muddy Waters), Billy Branch (one of the best harmonica players on the planet), Ronnie Baker Brooks (son of Lonnie Brooks and one of the best guitarists and singers around) and Erica Brown (a powerhouse vocalist). We are very proud of the result; a 13 song album dedicated to the Rock N’ Roll, Blues legend and icon Willie Dixon.
Our summer included multiple music festivals, a quick stop in Philly for a radio convention, a few dates with Steve Miller Band, and of course our annual hometown throw down at our favorite venue in the world Red Rocks Amphitheatre on June 11th with special guest Dwight Yoakam.
We were honored when we were asked to play in front of our state capitol building again for the Colorado Remembers concert on 9/11 alongside John Fogerty.
Big Head Blues club hit the road on the Way Down Inside tour from Sept- Nov, hitting 34 cities across the US. This was a special experience for us, we all truly enjoyed the incredible shows. Our guests were able to join us for the entire tour and we had the chance to play in many new cities/venues including some of the most beautiful performing arts centers across the nation. The show received rave reviews.
We were then able to say goodbye to 2016 with a very special and intimate performance at Ophelia’s in our hometown of Denver.
Thanks again to all our fans who continuously go the distance to show us support and help us make every show a memorable experience. STAY TUNED, we have brand new music coming soon in 2017!
