ABOUT THE ARTIST

An Evening With BiG SUiT: Inspired by Talking Heads

BiG SUiT is a collective of nine musicians drawn to the cerebral adventures, infectious rhythms, and pioneering music known to the world as Talking Heads. BIG SUiT began when a Chicago-area producer reached out to Deacon Blues founder Steve Kikoen with a request to form a Tribute to Talking Heads.

With enormous respect and admiration for David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Franz, and Jerry Harrison, the idea of forming a tribute to these musical innovators was intriguing. Steve proceeded to put together what has ultimately become an amazing replication of Talking Heads.

BiG SUiT is heavily inspired by the film Stop Making Sense, and has recreated it within a live stage format. Additionally, the SUiTS incorporate many of the infectious, non-film Heads songs into their repertoire as well. Frontman Jason Krause brings an astonishing take on David Byrne. From the eye-catching and flamboyant routines of dancer/singers Jennifer Hall & Jessica Hornsten to the incredible percussion and afro-celt rhythm section of Phil Brines, Janis Wallin, and Megan Thomas, this Tribute to Talking Heads is the real deal. Rounding out the personnel are Paul Mutzabaugh & Cash Michaels on keyboards; with all of the “SUiTS” under the direction of Steve Kikoen, guitarist for BiG SUiT and founder/guitarist/singer of Deacon Blues. Guest artists include Chicago world percussion phenom Kalyan "Johnny Bongo" Pathak, Chicago drum icon Phil Brines, and Minneapolis drum legend Austin Lee. This funk–rock ensemble of stellar musicians offers up a truly inspirational, Once In A Lifetime connection.
