Big Water!
Original Folky, Country Blues!

Singer/songwriter/artist Big Water got his name from the mountains, lake, rocks and trees of Lake Tahoe in 1993. 'Tahoe' is a Washoe Indian word that means, 'Big Water' and was home for him for 12 years. In 1994, he met long time music partners Brandt Schweikert (vocals, guitar), Jesse Hendricks (percussion, banjo, flute, sax), Dave 'Sky' Hemp (drums), Blake Beeman (vocals, guitar) and Mike Schwartz (bass) to rally up a band. Since then, Big Water has played solo, as a duo and with a band and has traveled, toured and taught around the world. With 4 albums to his credit and over 20 years under his belt, this artist is still pushing the wave. Come join us at 19 Broadway for a very special night as 3 of his original band members (Brandt, Jesse and Sky) and a very special guest, Bryan Thorne (Hot Buttered Rum) on bass, come together for some sweet folky, country blues! Big Water and The Schweikert lived in San Anselmo for a short spell and played in Fairfax on a regular basis back in 1999-2002. Come raise a glass with us as these boys come together to play a venue that they played in back then! Gonna be a special reunion night!

Big Water is an artist, educator, producer, songwriter and most of all a singer with a voice like liquid gold. As a one man show or backed by his band, his original music is a gift of heart and soul that blends folk, country, and blues with beautiful melodies and grooving rhythms. Four albums, LOOK, LISTEN, AND FEEL (2001), LIFE ON EARTH (2005), IN THE GARDEN (2007) and recently released WHUT!? (2015), all let you in on how this man views the hope and the hurt of the human experience. Big Water calls Portland, Oregon his Base Camp and has toured and traveled the world carrying love, music, and fun to all generations everywhere he goes. From sometimes ‘singing for his supper’, to playing festivals with other artists or doing creativity workshops with kids in schools, this artist is dedicated to his craft and to the shared experience between performer and audience. Big Water is a solid and seasoned artist to keep your eyes on with his ‘get under your skin and into your heart’ song writing style. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself singing along on his songs whether you know them or not.
Big Water is a feel good artist that shines on your spirit,
soothes your soul, and heals your heart.  
Big Heart, Big Mind, Big Water.
