Progressive Funk Fusion

About The Big Black Galactic

The Big Black Galactic is *the* premier act of North Central Ohio. A tightly wound blend of progressive rock, funk, and jazz fusion wrapped in outstanding musicianship and loose improvisation, allows The BBG to soar above typical genera classifications. While predominately instrumental, the band also likes to invoke playful lyrics and expertly layered harmonies that the audience can't help but sing along to.

Founding members Ryan Debarbrie (Guitar), Andy Bauman (Bass), and Bradley Meekins (Drums) began their musical journey together in early 2011 under the name "Ebin's Flow". As the music evolved, so did the bond, and through a series of cosmic events, The Big Black Galactic was formed. The band operated as a trio until the Fall of 2015, when through yet another series of cosmic events, they were joined by hard-hitting veteran and long time friend, Tony Schaffer (formerly of The Womacks) on Keys.

The Big Black Galactic began recording their debut album "Cosmic Trigger" in November of 2015 and released the 7 track LP in February of 2016. This 56 minute album features the title track along with other iconic songs such as To The Victor, stronK!, and Weenle.

The live show is an ever evolving, high-energy, often comedic experience that captivates the audience from beginning to end. Large festivals to small clubs, The Big Black Galactic delivers a top notch, professional performance that no one will soon forget.
