The eight-piece band, Big Fat Meanies, is thrilled to present you with their brand new music video for their track, “Tranquil Tension,” taken from their 2021 EP, Bad Hand.
In the new “Tranquil Tension” video, the eight-piece opens up the visual with a performance scene surrounded by expensive cars, and lead vocalist, Brenna Diehl, shares her powerful voice. From the octet’s truly exceptional horn section to the powerhouse vocals of Diehl, the Big Fat Meanies are one of the most versatile bands in the industry.
The video continues, as each member passionately rocks out to the song. Two of the other scenes in the video, show the band walking down the middle of a road, continuing to perform, as well as a rooftop performance scene. The video isn’t fancy with special effects or other flashy elements, but it simply showcases Big Fat Meanies‘ raw talent as a band and as musicians.
Hailing from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and voted as the “Best Rock Band” in Central Pennsylvania earlier this year, the Big Fat Meanies consistently deliver a high dose of electrifying energy during their live performances. I’ve personally been able to attend one of their shows and each member is highly skilled with their respective instruments and demonstrates a high level of musicianship. They know how to work the stage and deliver an engaging, exciting show to their audience.
The live show isn’t the only aspect of an artist’s music career. The songs must be solid and the Big Fat Meanies reliably deliver a catalog of exhilarating songwriting while blending pop, punk, funk, metal, ska, and even musical theatre. The eight-piece shines in the delivery of its incredible storytelling lyrics and its stage presence, encouraging audience members to dance and have a good time. They will make you want to get up and dance.
Big Fat Meanies are Brenna Diehl (vocals), Sam Kelly (lead guitar), Zander Gawn (rhythm guitar/background vocals), Rick Ferrarelli (bass clarinet), Nicole Migliore (trumpet), and Jason Lankford (trombone).
