The Big Fit
The Big Fit
Since 2005, the band Frobeck has been astonishing audiences throughout Northern California with their unique blend of Pop, Funk, and Rock music. Now, in 2018, the lineup has changed, along with the band name. Frobeck has become The Big Fit, and with the name change comes an even funkier new sound. With high-octane vocals, well crafted songs, and world-class musicianship, The Big Fit is as ready as ever to continue to rock the Northern California music scene. In 2008, Frobeck won a North Bay Music Award (NORBAY) for Best Rock Group and also won first place at the Mystic Theater Battle of the Bands in Petaluma. As The Big Fit, the group strives to excel along the same avenues Frobeck put forth, with as much sonic intensity as ever. The group members have shared the stage with Bill Champlin, Bootsy Collins, WAR, Los Lonely Boys, Booker T, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, The New Mastersounds, Trombone Shorty, Papa Grows Funk, and many other nationally recognized acts as the band Frobeck. The Big Fit is excited to carry on the tradition of playing upcoming shows which are just as prestigious and memorable! Boasting a full lineup of bass, drums, guitars, keys, and sultry backing vocals, The Big Fit covers all the bases. With an earth-shaking horn section, The Big Fit has entered into the realm of their musical heroes: Tower of Power, The Meters, The Sons of Champlin, and Stevie Wonder. The Big Fit is sure to get your blood pumping, booty shaking, and your groove grooving! Check 'em out!
