Description
If Wikipedia included a “chamber rock” entry, a photo of the Big Blue House band might be the illustration.

The trio produces the rock/roots/blues/folk equivalent of a classical chamber ensemble--melodic and mostly drummer-less acoustic covers and original compositions played at volumes low enough to be enjoyed in a decent-sized living room, but energetic enough to fill clubs and concert halls as well.

That’s why the band has become a favorite of fine eateries like Lemoncello in East Rochester and Prosecco, in Farmington. Diners can maintain normal conversational tones while enjoying acoustic music that enhances without overwhelming.

The group’s repertoire is wide, including blues from the 1920s, rock from the 1950s to the present day, classic folk music, reggae, and even mainstream jazz, all played in a unique, interactive style that suggests real-time, musical communication among band members and a true musical connection with audiences.

Big Blue House consists of two guitarists who also sing and an upright bass player who doesn’t:
• Brian Burley, lead vocals and rhythm guitar
• Harvey Possemato, lead guitar and backup vocals
• Bob DeRosa, bass

Brian Burley: guitar, vocals
