For over 30 years, Marty & Kyle Shepard have been father & son. For the last seven of those thirty years, they have created one Great Big Happy Musical Mess. The Big Mess has performed at festivals and events in Mexico, California, Washington and all over British Columbia.
VoxMan Kyle, the ever-experimenting mad scientist of lyric & groove, is like a multi-dimensional Bobby McFerrin who escaped the zoo on a full moon with plans to storm Broadway while maintaining a nasty binge of the Blues. VoxMan’s vocal nature is a shapeshifter: snappy, sexy, liquid and lewd.
As yin to VoxMan’s wild yang is Marty Shepard, aka Dad, a bluesy mage & jazzy sage. He plays his horn like a thousand years of oral storytelling blooming into a passionate kiss at the heart of a blazing dance party.
