Spotlight on Big Daddy Love, appearing Friday at The Blue Vine

Spotlight on…
Big Daddy Love
appearing Friday at The Blue Vine
In early 2006, Daniel Justin Smith, Dustin Transou, and Derek Reece formed Big Daddy Love after years of friendship and informal jam sessions.
The band debuted as a rock/improv trio at The Wisteria Festival in Castle Hayne, NC. They played nearly 50 shows in their first year. During this time, their shared love of acoustic roots music began to influence their shows and set lists.
Substantial changes were made in ’07 when a drummer and banjo player were added to the trio. With Steve Nalley holding down the groove and Benjamin Kallam bringing his own banjo style, strong vocals, and some original material, Big Daddy Love evolved.
With this new musical landscape, principal songwriters Smith and Transou hit their stride and in April 2008, and BDL released their debut album, “Circle Around the Sun.” While the album is acoustic and roots driven at its core, it is the fusion of bluegrass, blues, alt-country, rock, and funk that is BDL’s signature.
Ultimately, it is BDL’s authenticity and the startling power of their live shows that resonate with their audience. Genuine and intensely personal lyrics captivate and connect.
Be captivated. Get connected. Feel the love this Friday at The Blue Vine, 209 S. Main St.
