The Big Boy Little Band

The Big Boy Little Band

Big Boy Little may be the nom de blues of veteran harp player/singer Bret Littlehales, but then again it may not. If it is, then we can trace him back to the Northside Blues Band in 1968-69, with a young Bobby Radcliff on guitar. If not, then he might have been the mysterious harp player on Son House's extended recording of Death Letter Blues in Mississippi circa 1942. Then again, that might have been someone else. This we know for sure: he's led the BBL Blues Band in DC for the last seven years, five in residence at the Zoo Bar, and that, much like the Duke of Earl, nothing can stop him. In fact, the brand new edition of the band debuts Thursday nights at the Zoo Bar Blues Jam. Loved by some, including himself, reviled by some, also including himself, BBL keeps those blues keepin' on, whatever that means. So check it out - the enigmatic, quixotic, mysterious, always entertaining Big Boy Little Band. Bret Littlehales aka "Big Boy Little", Steve "Baby Jake" Jacobs, "Wolf" Crescenze and Robby Leebrick.

"This guy's a real blues player." - Huey Lewis of The News.
