Big Machine: A Tribute to Big Shiny Tunes


Lead Guitar.



Foo Fighters. Weezer. Green Day. Blink 182. Etc… Anybody wanna play THIS stuff instead of “Brown Eyed Girl” and “Sweet Home Alabama???

Seeking Lead Guitarist to fill out the lineup of BIG MACHINE: A TRIBUTE TO BIG SHINY TUNES! We’ve come to the conclusion that cover bands that play the same old classic rock staples are a dime a dozen. People who are going out to listen to live bands are probably wanting something else! Why not hit them with something unique? Something nobody else in Simcoe County is doing!!!

Material will be mainly songs from those compilations as well as other pop, punk, rock, and alternative stuff from the 90’s and early 2000’s. These are the 40 songs we are working towards completing as a setlist for our first show…

This band was originally formed back in late 2019. Covid stepped in and kinda changed the live music scene for a while and we lost momentum. The music in the youtube link below are studio recordings performed by myself (the singer) and the other members of the original lineup formed in 2019. These recordings were instrumental in booking our first show which was promptly cancelled when the pandemic hit.

The original band is no longer available for various reasons but reforming with new players.

Have the Facebook page and YouTube channel already in place.
