Here's a band from upstate New York that might tickle the fancy of many readers here. They are the six-piece outfit Big Krush. These guys operate out of the East Coast but their music is influenced from the other side of the continent. L.A styled west coast music is their game, with a nod to the likes of Toto, Chicago and Player. Big Krush is the mastermind of Bob Acquaviva, the band being in existence now for five years. Bob is also a producer and engineer by day at his acclaimed Acqrok Studios in Utica, NY, so getting these tracks scrubbed up proved to be no problem. Trainspotters may know that Bob was also the Track Engineer on Boston's most recent release 'Corporate America' and was previously a member of 90's melodic rockers Touris.

The Songs
The music of Big Krush has a very 'live' and spontaneous feel to it, and they groove in much the way a club house band would. It also means that their live instincts come to the fore in the delivery of these songs. You get that impression with some of them, 'Hold On Tight' and 'More Or Less' being a couple of examples. Take a listen to the excellent 'Good About Me', which takes on Chicago like strains, as does 'This Time It's Real', the horn-blasts and funky groove all hitting home. When the band turn down the excitement, they can slow-burn to tunes like the ballad 'Love Is A Desert' or the deceiving '37 Summers'.. a slow groovin' number until the fiery solo from Acquaviva kicks in. Probably the best representation of their sound is found on the pair of '(Gotta) Love Jones' (prob my favourite track on the album) and 'I Can't Wait', both west coast oriented but with a bit of street-smart urban attitude too!

In Summary
Big Krush are currently finishing up their second album, a little bit more in the vein of Player, and a little more blue eyed soul with a edge, says Bob. The band will do some local touring to coincide with the release. In the meantime, fans of West Coast (or East Coast for that matter!) should hop on over to the Big Krush website, and investigate for yourselves.
