A Big Sad Whale / Bio

A Big Sad Whale is a Progressive Jazz Rock group from St. Louis, Missouri, that combines the talents of Zach Petzel on guitar/organ/vocals and Alex Dabney on drums/vocals. In 2010, the duo first came together, blending the sounds of sixties groups such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and The Who with elements of swing and jazz.
