The sixth year of Cardiff’s credible music talent competition, The Big Gig, saw a final on earlier this month.
The final winners on Friday 15th July were The Moon Birds, followed by Dave Morris & the Knock and Naomi Rae. Other finalists included indie-rock band Himalayas and future folk band The Brwmys.
The finalists were joined by former winner Maddie Jones, who performed in celebration of the Big Gig’s impact on the local band scene.
The Moon Birds are a five-piece band from Merthyr Tydfil that bring you dirty blues, seething guitar lines and harp-riddled outbursts onto a “drunk-funk” groove.
The Big Gig final itself was a fantastic night – the atmosphere was buzzing and Clwb ifor Bach was packed to full capacity with local music lovers. We can't wait for The Big Gig Final 2017!
