As we all know, social distancing is the most important thing we can do to help beat the virus. Everyone in the band has been doing their part by staying home and avoiding social gatherings. Although this has been challenging, it has also given us the opportunity to connect which each other in a different way.
This version of Tom Petty’s You Don’t Know How It Feels was shot entirely in self isolation using our smart phones. What a joy to play music together again! Big thanks to our good friend Dan Tahmizian for editing the video and our very own Ian Docherty for mixing the song. Enjoy! And stay safe!
You Oughta Know! Big Shiny Dwayne returns this May with a VERY special edition – this time, we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of Alanis Morissette’s best-selling record Jagged Little Pill,plus a whole second set of all the other giant 90s tunes.
25 years ago, Alanis Morissette released her third studio album, a stylistic departure from previous dance-pop work that quickly became a staple in the alt-rock/post-grunge world. Jagged Little Pill was HUGE, topping the charts and making Alanis Morissette the youngest artist in history to win Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards.
On Saturday, May 23 we celebrate Jagged Little Pill cover-to-cover, followed by a set of classic Big Shiny Dwayne 90s tunes.
The fan club presale starts March 11 – sign up HERE.
