Big Money Gators, A Throwback


Big Money Gators is an eclectic and exceptional six-piece band out of Austin, TX that blends the best of Rock, Funk, Soul, R&B, and Hip Hop and delivers an awe-inspiring sound that defies anything fans will hear on the current local music scene. As diverse as their music, these musicians are masters of their craft creating a feel that is a throwback to the days when real-down-to-your-toes soul ruled the charts.

Influenced by artists as varied as Prince, Jimi Hendrix, Paramore, No Doubt, and Led Zeppelin, Big Money Gators are jaw-dropping live. Lead singer Jake Lloyd has a soulful, expressive, larger-than-life vocal range that brings audiences to their feet and the band’s musicianship has earned them accolades such as BMG Artist of the Year 2012 and Artist of the Month in March of 2012 in PopVulture Magazine.

Most recently, they played SXSW 2015 and are packing houses at Austin’s hottest clubs including Dozen Street and Sweetwater. This is real soul, not some knockoff, combined with songs that are exquisitely written and passionately performed. The Big Money Gators have shared the stage with such esteemed acts as The Peterson Brothers and Sucka Please. They are currently #4 on The Deli Magazine’s List of Top 300 Austin Funk artists.
