Big Idea is a versatile five-piece band playing a wide variety of adult-oriented covers from the 50's to the present day.

Canberra, ACT, Australia

Big Idea is a versatile band who have been playing in and around Canberra since 2006 at venues including the Hellenic Club, Chisholm Tavern, Vikings Clubs, Old Canberra Inn, the Canberra Irish Club, Rose Cottage, PJ O'Reilly's, The Weston Club, and George Harcourt Inn, as well as many private and corporate functions.

With a flexible line up that includes acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, mandolin, violin, banjo, bass, drums and rich vocal harmonies, Big Idea can tailor a setlist especially for your function.  We can play quieter acoustic sets, or rock it up with a full PA system.

Big Idea is available for bookings at private and public venues in and around the Canberra region.

So if you want some big musical ideas for your next function, contact Big Idea!

Please note: From July 2017, Big Idea is working as a 4-piece while Cass is on 'maternity leave'.  There are some songs that are temporarily off the menu, but we've been adding lots of new ones!

The first list is our 4-piece songs, and the second list is the songs we'll be able to do when Cass returns in early 2018.
