The Gigantics are a high energy, melody-driven "honkabilly" band, whose strong harmonies are reminiscent of the Everly Brothers sweet and pure vocals of the late 50's.
During the band's live shows you'll hear the whining of a steel guitar, and an old Gibson acoustic partnered with haunting three-part harmonies. Like driving down a gravel country road, the brushes on a snare drum set the pace. The very next song will make you stomp your feet as the tubes heat up in the vintage Vox and Fender amps. Next the drum kit starts rockin' like the early club days of The Faces or Stones. As a result of their wide variety of originals and a few classic covers, their live shows generate a packed dance floor and a swingin' time.
Founded by friends over 15 years ago, the band crafted it's sound while practicing in barns, basements or wherever they could find a rehearsal space. Mark Neff is the singer/songwriter and rhythm guitarist; Derek Stanton is the new lead guitarist; Todd Brown presides over the drums and mandolin; Dave Stanton mans the bass guitar along with his singing/songwriting, guitar and piano abilities. Steel guitarist Drew Howard from up in Lansing, MI area guests on lots of gigs. Jack Leaver from Northern Michigan sits in on steel as well from time to time. Both Drew and Jack are on The Gigantics 9 - song CD "Angel Talk".
