Bio

Childhood friends Sam Toabe and Jeffrey Vachon grew up in a small town north of Boston. Playing blues songs with their fathers at an early age, the two became lifelong guitar addicts. At the age of eleven, Jeff moved 60 miles away, yet somehow their friendship remained completely intact. 2007 marked the first time in 8 years that Sam and Jeff lived in the same zip code. Sam and Jeff knew that they could not possibly go it alone, and in a bout of serendipity, the band started to fall together like the pieces to a puzzle. First they met Justin Shapiro recording an E.P. at the Milkhouse Recording Studio in Allston, MA. Justin was brought in by the producer to play drums, and the chemistry was so immediate that lamps on the end-tables of distant homes exploded in rapture. Since then Justin has handled all the skins for Big East. More recently, Jeff moved into a house in Allston with 7 strangers. One of those strangers was Eric Ramsley, a man who can only be described through direct quote "I'm never wrong." After only two weeks Jeff invited Eric to be a part of Big East, an invitation which Eric obliged. Then finally like a ray from the sun came an end to the long drought of low end the band had suffered through. Presumably from some far off, funky planet, Viva emerged to round out the line up on the biggity-bass. Big East is an experiment in collective consciousness through the passionate release of tension. We are constantly growing, and we invite you all to come along and be a part of it.
