The Big Payback brings together some of the Midwest’s finest musicians, each offering a wide array of experiences helping to create a unique and infectious sound. These musicians can also be heard performing with Youngblood Brass Band, Harmonious Wail, Reels Green, Weapons of Mass Defunktion, Gadjo Players, Grupo Candela, and Vic Ferrari.
