Big Eyed Phish (Dave Matthews Band Tribute)
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".
Mike Powell
Mike Powell
Mike Powell left the Town of Champion in 2001 and went on to Syracuse University where, in four years, he became the most decorated college lacrosse player in the history of the sport.

After college, despite being the number one draft pick in both professional lacrosse leagues, Mike declined the offers to play professionally and instead packed up his guitar and hit the road to play music in coffee shops and folk houses all over the American west. He is an open-chested free spirit and an absolute prolific writer with over 200 songs already in his arsenal.

His words are honest and his performances are captivating, intimate, and interactive. His powerful silky voice is oozing with blue eyed soul. He somehow blends folk with soul and country to create a sound that is as unique as his personality.
Ryan Grant

Venues include: Pubs and restaurants across the east coast. Ryan has played venues including the United Nations in New York City, major universities, and has been featured on SiriusXM satellite radio to spotlight his original compositions.

Recent review of Ryan’s music: “Ryan's beautifully unique voice quality coupled with strong guitar skills (on his favorite Martin & Taylor guitars) and fantastic attitude and drive, position him squarely and confidently in the spotlight quite comfortably. At ease on and off the stage, Ryan Grant's rock/acoustic style exudes emotion with a full band sound while primarily a solo artist.”
