It Must Be Love


Big10 were formed in 1999 by Jason and Andy Periss. Realising that it was getting harder and harder to hear the music they love live, they formed Big 10. At the time Jason was managing local ska legends Colonel Hathi (from where singer Gary Brown and trombone player Bill Smith were recruited) and Andy was well established in the Cambridge scene. The ambition was to create the most dynamic and exciting Ska tribute to their heroes for all the fellow fans out there.

Renowned for a huge Ska sound, entertaining stage antics and a loyal following Big 10 are one of the most popular tribute acts in the south east. Racking up over 700 gigs across the Uk over the last 11 years, the bands popularity has only ever increased. Besides headlining venues, festivals, scooter rallies, corporate and private events across the UK they have also been the support slot to ska legends Toots and the Maytals, Bad Manners and The Beat to name but a few.

Big10 are lucky to have a group of seasoned peformers - Jason and Gary have fronted and managed numerous bands. Former guitarist Andy is currently in Neville Staple's (The Specials) band. Chris, Dan, Ian and David (brass and keyboards) have played for and toured with both Bad Manners and Neville Staple of the Specials. Davey has recorded/toured with chart acts such as Seal and Sophie Ellis Bexter.

Big 10 are the party band and guarantee to get those feet moving on the dance floor... Big band, big sound , Big 10!!
