About Big Brother
THE GULF BEACHES OF TAMPA BAY – CIRCA 1994
Markus Allen with the help of the legendary Lois Lee sought to form a new entertainment entity the likes of which had never been seen before…well, at least in these parts!
Lois paired Markus with guitar prodigy Matt LaPorte and it was on! (well….. there were two adequately talented guys with a dream)
Matt and Markus recruited Gary (a drummer) who said he knew Kevin (a bass player) and they all got together in a room. Then something odd happened…. they played and sang notes, which became songs, which people listened to, and actually liked! A lot!
Much to their surprise these dorks were on to something and aside from out living their expectations and several incarnations, the wild ride that is The Big Brother Band continues to be a staple of the Florida Music Scene.
The current line up still includes Markus and Kevin, and is rounded out by guitar guy and veteran of his own musical ventures, ” The Showkilla” Dave Arazmo. The great news is that your Big Brother Band is having a renaissance by moving back into what gave them their notoriety in the first place: Hard Hitting Rock n Roll with a penchant for the unpredictable always looking to give their crowd EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT!
What’s next? Who knows! One things for sure, you’re not gonna want to miss one second!!
