This Jacksonville four-piece group is in demand for everything from big events to small clubs, and they are getting national attention too, playing Classic Rock from the 70s, Hard Rock and Metal from the 80s and 90s, Southern Rock, a little Punk Rock, and some excellent music of their own.The Big Engine is a high-octane rock n' roll machine, playing over 300 shows a year for thousands of fans. They do plenty of audience-pleasing cover favorites, but they also write some songs of their own, which are equally popular with their fans.
