Big Head Todd and The Monsters have quietly become an American institution following three and a half decades of writing, recording, and touring (totaling over 3,500 performances). After countless sold out shows in amphitheaters and on the high seas, beaming their tunes to outer space (literally), earning the endorsement of everyone from Robert Plant to The Denver Broncos, and tallying tens of millions of streams, Big Head Todd and The Monsters cite the friendships formed in the crowd among their proudest accomplishments. Fast forward to 2021 and the Colorado quartet —Todd Park Mohr [vocals, guitar, keys, sax, harmonica], Brian Nevin [drums, percussion], Rob Squires [bass, vocals], and Jeremy Lawton [guitar, keys, vocals, steel guitar]—continue to unite audiences.

“Friendships have spawned because of our band,” smiles Todd. “Maybe a bit like the Grateful Dead, the line between audience and stage has over time become a bit blurred and many lifelong friendships have been made in every direction. I’m very proud of that. Bringing people together and sharing a joy for a couple of hours is an important function of music. Music can cultivate community, even harmony. We need that!”

In 2019, the band instituted another fan favorite tradition, by launching Monsters Music Monthly. They revealed a free song and video on a monthly basis, including “Hoochie Coochie Man” [feat. Buddy Guy], “Rosalita” [feat. John Popper of Blues Traveler], “Remedy” [feat. Ronnie Baker Brooks], “Sunshine of Your Love” [feat. David Hidalgo], and more. Todd and Co. have notably managed to collaborate or perform with a myriad of their heroes over the years, namely Neil Young, B.B. King, Allman Brothers, John Prine, Albert Collins, James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, Hubert Sumlin, and dozens more.

“For a half-Asian kid growing up in Littleton, Colorado, it’s not likely I would’ve ever ended up being as involved in blues music as I have been,” he observes. “It’s unbelievable we’ve gotten to play and even record with some of my idols.”

In the end, Big Head Todd and The Monsters will never stop bringing crowds together. In fact, they’ll hit the road yet again for a full-scale US tour in winter 2022 with more on the horizon.

“If I had any message for our listeners, it would just be, ‘Thank you’,” he leaves off. “We’re so fortunate to have lives making music. We’re grateful to be in the situation we’re in, and we’re going to continue as long as we can.”

    I went to the University of Colorado in the ’80s and saw Big Head Todd many times outside on the UMC deck Friday afternoons for FAC (anyone old enough to remember FACs?). When they came through Portland a few years ago, I got tickets to see them but got the date wrong and missed the show – aack!
    Would love to introduce my daughter to the band I saw live so much in my college years!

    I’ve actually never seen Big Head Todd & the Monsters. Honestly, until the other day I hadn’t even heard of them. Then I started scrolling down this page and saw they’ll be in Portland? Let’s give this a go and see what happens.

  34. Jonas Trekas on January 13, 2022 at 5:13 pm

    Want to take my wife out for date night.

    Last time I saw them was on the televised Musicians for Colorado benefit concert. They played atop a parking garage outside a hospital and it was beautiful. Would very much like to see them in person.

  37. Roger on January 14, 2022 at 1:01 pm

    BHTATM are incredible and their live shows are not to be missed! I would love to win these passes and thank you for the chance!
