Sarah P. Duke Gardens

“Imagine the intersection of free jazz and Southern music at large; now, take that idea and flesh it out for an 8- to 11-piece band, bristling with plump orchestrations and noisy breakdowns. That approximates the music of Fight The Big Bull…When this unit is at its best it rears back and bellows, and cuts quickly to the pleasure centers of your brain.”

“[Fight The Big Bull] is a band with no fear, that is used to playing in front of an audience, that doesn’t mind rocking out, and doesn’t mind spacing out.”
—Steven Bernstein
