The Big Drift

13 Adams St., Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Patrick Rooney
Saturday, May 19 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

THE BIG DRIFT’s earliest roots began about four years ago when Jono Edwards and Noah Kaufman began recording music together. Eventually, they found a bassist in Pat Rooney and a drummer in Noah Stockman. After working hard and earning enough money from their gigs, they put it all towards their one common goal—an album. In September 2011, their debut album “The Big Drift” was finished. The Big Drift present a rock sound with sweet elements of funk, reggae, blues, and even a little bit of country. Their popular tunes satisfy listeners of all kinds, and are sure to get the audience’s heads bobbin’ and feet movin’.
