Big Eyed Phish - Dave Matthews Tribute Band:
Big Eyed Phish is the ONLY full 7-piece Dave Matthews tribute in the country and are based out of Rochester, NY. In the 5 years they have been performing they have grown to become a highly sought-after headlining act in the Northeast region for festivals, resorts, casinos, and live music venues. The band is lead by frontman Brandon Depaul, the founder of the former DMB Tribute: Tripping Billies. He is backed up by a great band with fantastic musicians and is the only DMB Tribute that can claim to have a full time lead guitar and keyboard player. This allows them to be the only accurate DMB Tribute in the country.
Big Eyed Phish has greatly expanded their coverage and touring area in the past 2 years. They were a headlining act in many festivals including the East End Festival, Dunkirk Music Series, Presque Isle Music Series, Party in the Park, Greensburg Concert Series, and many more. They have gigs as a headliner of a College Ski Week up in Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine as well as Stratton Mountain and Jay Peak in Vermont, and have broken into the casino market playing the Twin Rivers Casino in Rhode Island and a multi-day run at the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. This is on top of their successful shows at major music venues such as the Water Street Music Hall in Rochester, The Westcott Theater in Syracuse, Rapids Theater in Niagara Falls, and others.
When looking for the DMB Tribute that is able to offer the full catalog of the Dave Matthews Band sound throughout the years - Big Eyed Phish is the best there is. From small private parties, to weddings, to festivals, concert series, casinos, resorts, and large live music venues - this band will leave people saying "I feel like I just left a live Dave Matthews show".
Darryl Rahn is a 21 year old workhorse with a lot to say. He has a delicate tenor voice paired with insightful and earnest lyrics. His guitar work is perhaps the standout element of his act as he swaps effortlessly between fast-paced finger picking and softly strummed progressions. He has been writing, recording, and touring relentlessly since 2013, following his time at Berklee College of Music, where he honed his craft enough to dive into the world of Americana.
Darryl's most recent tour took him down the east coast to North Carolina in support of his record, "Home Sweet Home." It was then he supported acts like Jim Avett, Wild Child, and Elijah Wolf, while also recording his newest single, "Those Days Are Gone." Since then, he has played around the New York City circuit at venues such as Mercury Lounge, The Bowery Electric, and Rockwood Music Hall, while also finishing up the recording process for his upcoming LP, "All That Matters."
The day after he turned 21, Darryl packed the car and moved to East Nashville, where he currently resides, performing at local songwriting circles.
Be on the lookout for studio updates and snippets from the new record!
