The Big Lagniappe is a unique band from Joliet, Illinois. The band was formed in 2016, and was birthed from other projects that went to the wayside. With a four piece horn section, thumping rhythm section, and stunning guitar solos, the band has been gaining crowds attention since the beginning. This past year they headlined New Orleans North in Joliet, played NOLA Fest in Blue Island and Down on The Farm Fest. The band is no stranger to the Chicago land nightlife scene either. 2018 also boasted a 4 week Mardi Gras Residency at Chicago Street Pub and a show at the historic Rialto theater among other shows. While The Big Lagniappe is influenced from New Orleans roots music, the band has a slough of original tunes. The band keeps true to blue collar, Midwest town they hail from, and stay engaged in the local community. The original tunes are somewhat progressive in nature, and the traditional tunes, breath new life into the old. The first full length record, “A Little Somthing Mo”, is out as of December 21, 2018.
