The Big Payback
Celebrating 10 years this season, The Big Payback is an award-winning jazz-rock band featuring the soulful vocals of Leah Isabel Tirado and a smoking horn section. Mixing “ambitious original tunes that challenge even the most talented instrumentalists” (La Crosse Tribune) with classic covers, the band’s live show never fails to get the crowd moving. Nominated as one of Madison’s favorite “Dance Bands” by Isthmus readers in 2016, Payback is a party you won’t want to miss.

The Big Payback burst onto the Madison music scene by winning Isthmus’ Band to Band Combat in 2011. That same year, they released their debut album Overture, which won three Madison Area Music Awards (MAMAs) and established them as Madison’s “Jazz-Rock Orchestra.” The Payback won MAMA awards for Best Jazz Performer in 2015 and 2016. Taking their name from the classic James Brown song “The Payback”, the band shared the stage with original J.B.s members Clyde Stubblefield, “Jabo” Starks, Fred Thomas, and Fred Wesley for a 2015 performance at MadCity Sessions. The following year, the group played the prestigious Briggs & Stratton stage at Summerfest, the World’s Largest Music Festival. Their infectious sound and high-energy show have made them a tried-and-true favorite at Madison venues such as the Majestic Theatre, Overture Hall, and High Noon Saloon.

The band’s pool of talented musicians can also be heard performing with Harmonious Wail, Driveway Thriftdwellers, Grupo Candela, Immigré and Vic Ferrari’s Symphony on the Rocks. In addition, The Payback proudly teaches, giving performances and masterclasses at schools and universities throughout the Midwest.  
Bird's Eye
Popular Madison-based band Bird's Eye brings amazing energy to every stage they perform on. Founded in 2013, the seven members present a new take on hip-hop, melding soulful funk elements with modern beats and lyrics. Featuring an energetic brass section, explorative guitar and bass, on-point drums, and fantastic vocals, Bird's Eye always leaves you wanting more!
