Big Bang Boom

Big Bang Boom

Hot on the heels of winning a Grand Prize in last year's John Lennon Songwriting Contest, North Carolina's favorite power pop band for kids, Big Bang Boom, is setting out on tour!

As children of the '70s and '80s, with influences ranging from the Bee Gees and KISS to Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, and U2, Big Bang Boom is all about what makes pop popular. Their songs mix alt rock, hip-hop, punk, and country, and have "on message" lyrics that Parenting Magazine praised as "primed for the sandbox set."

A Big Bang Boom show is a party - a high impact, high energy, high volume, take-no-prisoners, "you WILL be involved" performance that gets kids (and their parental units) up and moving,

Big Bang Boom plays an array of super-charged Big Bang Boom-ified classic tunes, including a fast-paced, non-stop-bouncing rendition of "5 Little Monkeys," an everyone-is-in-the-band-singing-the-chorus version of "SpongeBob SquarePants," a follow-the-leader style "The Ants Go Marching," and, as a grand finale, a kids vs. parents contest, in the form of Big Bang Boom's famous "Great 'Hokey Pokey' Showdown."

Comprised of three devoted dads who just happen to be seasoned professional musicians, Big Bang Boom is known for laying down solid, hard-rockin', parent-friendly music that has made them the most in-demand kids'/family act to come out of their region.

After twenty years spent touring clubs and playing for "grown up" parties, Chuck Folds, Steve Williard, and Eddie Walker decided in 2007 to expand their horizons and focus on family entertainment. As Big Bang Boom, they have released three CDs of original music and played the prestigious Kidzapalooza stage at Lollapalooza, the family stage at Hangout Music Fest and the family music industry conference Kindiefest, just to name a few.

"If you like U2, then listen to Big Bang Boom. These three former rocker dads are creating kids' music you won't be embarrassed to blast on the carpool line." - Parenting Magazine
