Big Bang Boom is a 3 piece power pop band from Greensboro, NC playing parent-friendly children’s music. After 20 years touring, Chuck Folds, Steve Willard, and Eddie Walker decided to expand their horizons and play for parents who wanted more from children’s music. They write with a pop sensibility, cleverly mixing pop, alternative, hip-hop, country, and other styles to create a sound that parents can enjoy, and lyrics everyone can relate to.
The live show is high-energy, and demands the crowd get involved. From getting the kids on stage for the “Spongebob Chorus” to the parents vs. the kids hokey pokey challenge, Big Bang Boom has established “there is no sitting down at a Big Bang Boom show!” These covers combined with the hard-rockin’ original music has made them the highest demand children’s act in NC, playing nearly 30 shows a month in the spring and summer months.
Established in 2007, Big Bang Boom has released 3 cds to critical acclaim, and winning prestigious song writing awards such as the John Lennon Song Writing Contest. They have been invited to play major festivals and venues such as Lollapalooza, Hangout Fest, Lake Eden Arts Festival (LEAF), Musikfest, Levitt Pavilion Steelstacks, and NASCAR Coca Cola 600 Festival. In addition, Big Bang Boom has made numerous morning television appearances, run the Big Bang Boom Rock Star Music Camp, and played countless libraries, schools, and other events around in the Carolinas.
