Big Blue Ox is an explosive funk juggernaut from Salt Lake City, Utah. Throwing down head bangin’ grooves and blistering horn lines, this band is sure to elevate the mind and move the booty. Big Blue Ox recently released their self-titled EP, featuring some of the group’s most groundbreaking work.
The band’s core members, George Simon, Mason Peterson, and Wachira Waigwa-Stone, founded the first incarnation of Big Blue Ox while attending the School of Music at the University of Utah in 2009. After a hiatus, the band reformed in 2015 with an all-star lineup, including a 3-part horn section, analog synthesizers, and world percussion. Be sure to catch Big Blue Ox at a festival or venue near you and stay tuned for full album release dropping next year.
