The Big Heavy Tour Vans On the Road
Big Heavy World loans vans to Vermont bands because skinnydipping in the Pacific Ocean is every touring musician’s birthright. And sometimes it helps to build an audience in other states, or just move big musical stuff.
Music City / Music State
Strengthening the Music Community of Burlington & Vermont
Our work has main objectives: 1) Strengthen Vermont musicians professionally and socially, building the confidence and friendships that help musicians help themselves and each other; 2) Foster the economic success of music in Vermont and champion its value; and 3) Preserve and celebrate the cultural legacy created by Vermont’s musicians.
We’ve been doing this since 1996 as a crew of mostly high school and college-aged volunteers. Big Heavy World is now a part of the international awakening of cultural communities called ‘music cities,’ and is bringing the best worldwide tools and practices to Vermont.
Vermont bands who’d like to lend their input and voices to this mission can join us via the Vermont Alliance of Musicians & Presenters.
