"A fabulous fusion of blues, rock, folk and Americana that blew the socks off our audience. Absolute class."

“The Jigantics are a band with a vision. Five musicians who have the talent and flexibility to deliver rousing performances across an astoundingly diverse range of material!” FolkRadio.co.uk
The Jigantics are an award-nominated band from the West of England whom the press has described as one of Roots music's super groups. Having built up a deserved reputation as one of the UK’s “must see” live acts, July 2016 heralded the arrival of The Jigantics sophomore release SECONDS OUT. Fatea magazine said "Seconds Out certainly disproves the theory that the best 'Americana' and 'Roots' albums are produced by our North American buddies, that much is for sure. This is an album that should, if there is any justice or taste, take The Jigantics up to the next level, and national recognition. The quality on offer here is nothing short of breath-taking.”
Their debut album “Daisy Roots” featured on radio playlists in over 36 countries and garnered critical acclaim from all quarters, described as “something very special” and “Americana of the highest quality.”
Live, The Jigantics are an awesome band. There’s no auto pilot here, no going through the motions. The joy of making music translates easily to the audience who go home feeling they’ve been part of something very special. Never afraid to mix musical styles, but always with a touch of class, The Jigantics foot-tapping, feel good and totally convincing tearjerkers makes for a remarkable and spellbinding evenings’ entertainment.
