The Big Takeover
The Big Takeover
The Big Takeover is a high energy sextet, with a refreshingly upbeat, yet groove oriented, party-making approach to interpreting the Jamaican tradition of rocksteady, ska and reggae music. Formed in the funky college town of New Paltz, NY in 2007 and named after bassist Rob Kissner and drummer Sam Tritto’s proclivity for commandeering the stereo at campus parties, this band of self taught musicians has aquired a habit of making audiences look, listen and dance.
With over 300 live performances in the Northeast, ranging from Maine to North Carolina and a studio album (Following Too Close – 2008) behind them, the band look forward to what their 2011 release, Tale of My Life, will lead them to.

Bringing forward a fresh, new and infectious sound, they ignite on stage with intuitive hooks and bubbling rhythms that instantly get the crowd moving and singing along. Their songs promote self-awareness, consciousness, positivity and, above all, Jah love.
