All performers have extensive, professional backgrounds, and can play songs from numerous eras and genres. Review our song list and multimedia files. You’ll soon find that Bigg Romeo can expertly adapt to your musical preferences while accomplishing the task at hand, filling the dance floor.
No wonder Bigg Romeo was voted “BEST OF PHILLY” by Philadelphia Magazine and has won Wedding Wire’s “Couples Choice” for six straight years as well as boasting over 125 – 5 star reviews. This is just a little of the professional accolades that the band has won.
The thing that makes Bigg Romeo very different than most bands is that we are constantly working. The band plays at least 100 dates per year. We rehearse every week and you can find us in casinos and clubs from OCMD to Allentown, from the Jersey Shore to Lancaster. We love playing music together and never pass up an opportunity to do just that.
Bigg Romeo performs weekly to capacity crowds at clubs, corporate parties, conventions, special events and is a highly sought after wedding band on the East Coast. Each of these performances are quite an evening of entertainment, as Bigg Romeo places you right in the middle of a spontaneous party with their powerful, dynamic renditions of 60’s soul, 70’s disco, 80’s retro, 90’s dance classics, and the hottest pop tunes of today.
No two shows are alike. Each performance is customized and tailored to suit the event. Bigg Romeo combines virtuosity and showmanship while leaving a lasting impression so positive that you’ll want to see them again and again.
Sandy – Sandy is definitely one of the best female singers out there by far! She is full of energy with her non-stop dancing across the stage and tormenting of the guys in the band. She loves to put the microphone stand next to Crabby so he can bump into it or trip over it. A professionally trained singer, Sandy has been knocking audiences out for 2 decades with her strong vocals. She pulls no punches and puts it all out there. Sandy is fun to watch and she is a pro up there. Even if she isn’t singing lead, she is in the background singing back-up vocals and generally breaking about 2 tambourines a month and 1 cowbell. Her energy and enthusiasm are tops and her versatility shows in all she does.
Franco – A well seasoned Master of Ceremonies, Franco is a bride’s best friend when planning a wedding and always there for the little things that matter. All roads lead to Franco with Bigg Romeo, E-mail, phone calls etc. Available 7 days a week to our clients, Franco is hands down one of the most reviewed and talked about band leaders on theknot.com and weddingwire.com message boards. BRIDES LOVE FRANCO! He loves them.
A fantastic singer and performer, Franco is also multi-lingual and can sing in several languages including Spanish, Italian and even Hebrew. Even though he wears a lot of hats in the Bigg Romeo family, you will always get passion, love and hope out of every encounter with Franco. Bigg Romeo has been a labor of love for Franco for over 20 years and that will shine through in your day to day dealings with him.
Andrea – Andrea has music in her soul, and talent flowing through her veins. Not many entertainers are able to match the drive, and passion she emits with every note from her vocal cords.Not only professionally trained by some of the best in their fields…. She has ENGERY! EXCITEMENT!!! Combine her with Sandy and Franco and it’s a trio of vocalists and a party just waiting to happen.
Crabby– Ronnie-C or “Crabby”, as friends refer to him, is an irreplaceable, multi-talented part of “Bigg Romeo.” He is a phenomenal bass player and vocalist and is just an all around talented musician. A master of the 4 and 5 string bass guitar, Crabby also sings lead vocals, can play the guitar and drums and works especially hard to make the band sound good as the resident sound man. We know many people are always worried about the volume… Crabby has it on lock. No worries.
Joe– Joe has been playing drums professionally for over 25 years. He awesomely lays down a beat through all of our dance and party music and is locked into the rhythm section tight. Joe brings a special drive to the band and Crabby and Joe make you feel that beat right there in the middle of your chest with an amazing thump that just makes you want to dance.
Baba– Ever since Baba heard the first Kiss Alive album at age 10, he wanted to play guitar. He and his neighborhood friends would build cardboard guitars and with the help of a record player, put on “KISS Concerts” on the driveway. He’s probably been on a stage ever since. Baba’s love for music and his guitars shines through in every performance.Baba mostly plays his PRS and Godin Guitars on stage with Bigg Romeo and is proud to be endorsed by Steve Clayton Custom Guitar Picks.Baba also sings lead vocals and harmonies.
Trained on piano since age 4, Dave has studied classical music, jazz and everything in between. He is a graduate of Temple University with a degree in Composition and Arranging.Dave also makes up the battery of our wedding ceremony and cocktail music offerings and sings lead vocals and plays guitar on stage as well.

He loves horn bands and that big sound and has been playing professionally since 1998. Work hard, play hard.
