Commanding the attention of the local Sacramento music scene with each new performance, Big Water Beat brings strong original rock based themes and classic blues standards into their agenda with a framework of alluring vocals, rhythmic percussion and powerful arrangements. The approach is fresh and charismatic, sometimes reminiscent of British Invasion, with classic blues and a hint of grunge. Merging elements of wide ranging musical styles, the band powers out songs of redemption, salvation and hope, blues and rock, never afraid to advance into new territory, and always bringing the crowd to their feet.Ryan Pocan’s driving guitar rhythms, compelling themes and strong vocals captures the essence of a band versatile enough to engage listeners with rock, indie and blues, with an edge of rockabilly and grunge, spawned by a broad interest across generations from the Beatles and Nirvana to Robert Johnson, Iggy Pop and Jimi Hendrix. Desmond Sandy’s integrative work on drums is compelling, intelligent and powerful. Versatile bassist, Micah Burdick also lends strong vocal backup and enough imagination to often explore new ground.Come out, grab on to something, get on board the “Whiskey Train” and hold on.
