The best kept secret in music


"Band Rocks at Brewery Concert"

"The Big Happy doesn't deserve fluffy descriptions, so I'll say it as plain and simple as possible; they rock, man." Kent Kimes-Sun News, Myrtle Beach, SC - Sun-News

"the Big Happy Headed for the Big Time"

"This band really raised the bar for all other acoustic/electric bands at this year's festival. Their blend of mandos and electric slide, accordian and rubboards with harmonies from some of rock music's most gorgeous and exciting front women make the Big Happy headed for the BIG TIME."
Bellicose Bullfeather- Organic Music Monthly - Organic Music Monthly

"Big Fun, Big Happy, Big Time"

"The SRO crowd went home with smiles on their faces and happy feet as the Big Happy had everyone, dancing, smiling and groovin'"

Feeling a bit camera shy


Nashville based jam-pop crew the Big Happy are husband/wife teams Jill and Billy Block, Tom and Pru Clearwater Mason. More than just a band, the Big Happy focus on feel-good music guaranteed to put a smile on your face and the beat in your feet. Fans and industry critics alike are comparing these rockers with the legendary sounds of Fleetwood Mac and the edgy delivery of the White Stripes. With a stylistic range of rootsy influences spanning pop, rock, folk, & blues the sound is as Americana as apple pie. All four members contribute vocally and swap instruments at the drop of a hat. From the anthem rock of “We Can Change The World” to the driving Cajun rhythms of “Chank-A- Chank” and the inspired guitar solo of “Faith Healing” the Big Happy appeal to a broad spectrum of music lovers. Four exceptionally talented and accomplished artists come together for a magical experience of lively and engaging music and visually stimulating entertainment.
Members of the Big Happy have performed and recorded with Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Frank Black of the Pixies, Jim Lauderdale, Rodney Crowell, Buddy and Julie Miller, John Cowan, Al Green, Ellis Hooks, Steve Cropper, Levon Helm and Billy Joe Shaver.
