Great Big Sea Booking Agency Profile

Book Great Big Sea for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Great Big Sea is not a band you just go and see, or a CD you just listen to. Great Big Sea is something you have to do." Lead singer Alan Doyle's description of his band might be simple, but it comes close to describing the phenomena that is Great Big Sea. Their records are renowned for drawing together disparate threads of folk and pop music, while their shows are a storm of powerful singing, driving rhythms and soaring melody. Having sold well over a million copies of their albums in Canada, where the band is signed to Warner Music Canada, the band continues to make major inroads into the USA, where their music is available on the prestigious Zoe/Rounder label. From day one, it is the band's energetic concerts which have proven the base of their popularity..
