Biography: Terence McArdle & Big Trouble
BIG TROUBLE delights swing dancers, roots music fans, and blues lovers alike with a combination of swinging guitar, rough hewn vocalizing, swinging shuffle grooves, and pulsing horns.
BIG TROUBLE sounds both retro and modern -- danceably fun but still bluesy and deep.
We've evolved from a harmonica dominated Chicago blues band into a jump r'n'b band with one of the best horn sections on the East Coast. We mix a healthy dose of swing, be-bop, and even rockabilly into our style.
We started BIG TROUBLE in 1992 as an alternative to all the bands that have given blues a bad name. The ones who do nothing but the most predictable cover songs, that can't swing, that have no real grounding in the music's history, and make no effort to reach out to new audiences. You know who you are!
The members of BIG TROUBLE have shared stages with James Cotton, Little Jimmy King, Smokey Wilson, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Johnny Rawls, and Bobby Radcliff and have made many friends along the way.
