The Big Fiasco
MIlton Menasco is a blend of country infused, roots rock and reggae. With a mix of influences like Johnny Cash, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley and Willie Nelson, Menasco has created a style that famed London engineer Simon Heyworth (George Harrison, Brian Eno, Depeche Mode etc…) called "Fresh and Original".
Milton Menasco's three piece band The Big Fiasco is a rockin', funked out reggae explosion. Menasco & The Big Fiasco are a energetic, spontaneous and fun loving band that get the whole crowd dancing. Milton Menasco is an original artist who is also known to throw his spin on classic songs such as his Reggae'fied version of Johnny Cash's "Burning Ring of Fire" and his up-tempo version of Willie Nelson's "Whiskey River".
The musicianship in the band is inspiring and a typical show will take you on a wild ride of kicked back reggae, funk beats, rockin rhythms, with Menasco rippin' it up on guitars ranging from a twelve string slide, his acoustic Martin, his Spanish Nylon and his black PRS that was found for him by his late friend, talented musician and longtime Grateful Dead equipment manager David Troy.
