The Big Wu with Black River Revue at Big Top Chautauqua
A jam band with a unique style and presence, the Big Wu combines strong, free flowing improvisation and vocal harmonies, with finely crafted songs for all tastes. The story goes that “the Wu”, bound for rock stardom, sold their souls for a case of Old Style beer one thirsty night long ago. The legend and the band live on. Still rocking their powerful, moving, and energizing original music for the fans, we’re pleased to welcome them back to the tent for their 2nd appearance since 2002.
Black River Revue plays freshwater bluegrass from the twin ports of Duluth, MN and Superior, WI. Using bluegrass instrumentation, BRR has crafted their own sound made up of mostly original music which can be heard on their debut album "Garbage Pickin" (2013.) Their sophomore album "Spring Thaw" was released in 2014; their latest release will be revealed at this September 15 performance!
