Though Big Head Todd and the Monsters have been together since the late 80s, the band has never played in Macon. That will change Tuesday when they roll into town for a show at the Cox Capitol Theatre.
Its pretty exciting to get them here. When we first started talking about them I put out feelers to see if people were interested, and people went nuts. I had no idea they had so many fans in the area, said Roger Riddle, marketing manager for the Moonhanger Group, which manages the theater.
Big Head Todd and the Monsters latest album, Black Beehive, will be released the same day as the show and continues the bluesy sound the band has moved into playing over the years, Riddle said.
In 1993, they put out Bittersweet, and it was a pretty big hit for them. I would call (the album) Sister Sweetly light rock, easy going. Over the years, they have evolved somewhat, Riddle said.
Big Head Todd and the Monsters will be joined onstage by blues artists Baker Brooks and Hazel Miller.
Its gonna be a fun night, Riddle said.
