Original Front Porch Swing Music Played By Happy People!

There’s no simple formula to the Big Deals' songs; refreshing, unpredictable, and quirky, they’re great songs that really work.


The Big Deals are all seasoned and award-winning performers.  


Sinclair first came into the national spotlight when he was selected as a Merlefest Emerging Artist and as a three time award winner of the NC Grassroots Artists awards for songwriting and performance. 


Molly Barrett’s superb fiddle and vocal work are an integral part of the signature sound of this group.  Molly is an in-demand session player, a talented band mate and is a highly creative and melodic fiddle player! 


Tim Gallagher is an expressive and energetic mandolin and fiddle player with a diverse musical resume.  Tim keeps the band on their toes! 


Aaron Ramsey is a veteran of the Americana music scene - a unique talent as an instrumentalist (bass, mandolin, guitar), songwriter, award winning sound engineer and record producer.  

This band has fun being together and making this music. And it shows!


Bob Sinclair and the Big Deals are a significant new voice in the Americana music world!


It's as if A.P. Carter, the Gershwin Brothers, and Hank Williams all came back to life and said, "Let's write one more with Bob and then die."

-Vance Gilbert

“Sinclair’s band played our music series and was just terrific! I would highly recommend his group to any event, festival or venue. Your audiences will love you for it!”

Sinclair's songs are so well put together that they seem not to have been put together at all-as if they've always been there.  Sinclair is a top-class artist.

-Adam Levy


I LOVE Bob Sinclair.

-Toni Price (Austin, Texas grand dame of songs)


Sinclair's songs remind me of Uncle Walt's Band.  Cool.  Very Cool.

-Seth Walker
