Big Words are a Melbourne group who formed some eight years ago. They have an unmistakable sound and are very popular around the world. They are a five-piece band and now have a cult following. Each live show they have played has been a sell-out event.
This band of musicians and performers began their career at a winery on the NSW South Coast in 2009. The band leader, Simon Ghali, got together several of his musician friends to play a one-off gig. And the rest, as they say, is history.
They became popular and eventually brought a singer on board and it was then that they really soared in popularity.
This is a Belgium built travelling concert organ, which is the only organ of its kind in Australia. The organ's sound is that of a 20-piece band and needs to be heard to be believed! The music conjures up a carnival atmosphere and is well worth hearing.
