Big Boss Man

Here's another band I have wanted to mention for sometime.

Big Boss Man formed in November 1998, Their sound is a hip Heavy Hammond hybrid of pop, 6T's R'n'B / Latin soul and funk. The Band consists of: Nasser Bouzida a.k.a “the Bongolian” on Organ and Percussion, Scott Milsom on bass, guitar is provided by Trevor Harding and Nick Nicholls plays drums.

Early 1999 they got themselves a gig at the renowned "Blow Up", then situated at the Wag club London, as usual the club was packed and the crowd absolutely loved the Big Boss Sound. They were then immediately signed up to the clubs very own "Blow Up" record label. The first release can be found on V2 Blow Up compilation "Blow Up A Go-Go" with the demo version of the track Humanize, (recorded in the bands very own Ramshackle studios).

2008 Big Boss Man are working with producer Nick Terry on their 3rd LP “as yet untitled” set for release in autumn on Blow Up records.Big Boss Man’s club favourite “the Hawk” is included on “Come On Soul” an international compilation of vintage and contemporary Dance Floor tracks released by the Legre record label in Hamburg.

2006-7 BIG BOSS MAN's 'Party 7' was featured in NIKE WORLD FOOTBALL '06 CAMPAIGN! Nike used the Big Boss Man track 'Party 7' taken from their first album 'Humanize' in the ad entitled 'Henry' featuring Thierry Henry and Eric Cantana. This advert was broadcasted World-wide and sparked a 10 date tour of Germany in March, European festival dates and a mini-tour of Russia. The Mighty Boosh hit the big time and their film “Sweet” featuring BBM is released by the BBC on DVD. UK BBC coverage of the World Cup Final features Party 7.
