Big Boss Man is a Richmond-based band that has been burning up stages and dance-floors throughout Central Virginia with its unique blend of classic rock, soul, funk, and blues for over ten years.  From college fraternities, to outdoor festivals, to corporate/private parties and functions, Big Boss Man always delivers a huge variety of high energy music - making any event more enjoyable and memorable.

The band prides itself on getting people moving and dancing early and keeping them grooving all night long. A tight and powerful rhythm section provides a rock-solid foundation for soulful multi-part vocals and dueling guitars.  A typical Big Boss Man show will take you on a musical journey from Texas and the swamps of the south, to the streets of Memphis, San Francisco, Chicago and London. Their diverse and varied song list offers almost literally "something for everyone," and every audience member is sure to leave a Big Boss Man show humming a favorite song.
