Big Vern ‘N’ the Shootahs is a nine piece Soul Funk band delivering a unique brand of R & B & Soul with a big dose of suits, shades and attitude. This is a high energy show from start to finish.
Over many years the band has appeared as special guests on tour with some of the biggest acts on the Soul/R & B circuit including the Commitments Eddie Floyd the Original Blues Brothers including Steve Cropper and Donald “Duck” Dunn who have written some of the greatest soul tracks ever for such artists as Otis Reading and Wilson Pickett.
They were once voted third best act to appear in Glasgow that in one year year by the Herald & Times. 1st was Michael Jackson 2nd Prince. This is a band that never take themselves too seriously which certainly comes across in their live shows – they are not shy – all accomplished musicians collectively having fun and gettin’ on with it – they aim to please and don’t miss and hit the wall – they strive to be live and love the vibe that an audience enjoying themselves throws back at them……. if you are looking for a band to set your event on fire then……Big Vern n the Shootahs are your boys.
Big Vern n the Shootahs (BVATS) have been together since 1989 and are still enjoying entertaining audiences, be it at huge events like the World Cup celebrations at Glasgow Green, internationally attended functions in London, expatriate events in the Far East or small intimate gatherings for special memories.
They take pride on bringing all the fun of the Big Vern ‘circus’ 100% to town, be it at our own advertised shows, corporate functions, weddings, car launches, open air festivals, local and national radio and TV events, or many other bespoke events which we have enjoyed being a part of all over the UK.
