Big Bad Rooster is a high-energy Bluegrass band from Long Beach, CA. Their sound features a mix of bluegrass, folk, and old time – the perfect accompaniment for dance and drinks. From their heartfelt, foot-stomping originals to the most recognizable bluegrass and old-time favorites, BBR joins well-stocked tradition with distinctive artistry. BBR’s sensational musicianship, robust harmonies, and savvy lyricism are the product of over 70 years combined musical experience – Camilo Barahona on fiddle and vocals, brother Silvio Barahona on 5-string banjo and vocals, songwriter Michael Solan on lead vocals and guitar, and Tristan Cole-Falek on upright bass.
“We are a group of friends who enjoy hanging out and playing the music we love. We find comfort in the unexpected familiarity found between our lives and those of folks making music far before our time. We know this music to embody our values – music should be unapologetic, real, raw.”
-Your Friends, Big Bad Rooster
“There’s a new band of roosters in town and they want to make some noise in Long Beach’s vibrant roots music scene. There won’t be a loud crow at dawn but a hoedown howl of a screaming fiddle and the boot-stomping strums of a guitar and banjo… The record is a mix of high-energy original songs, ballads and harmonies connected by impressive musicianship and Solan’s deeply personal lyrics.”
