Band in Seattle: Live debut - Concert 110 A
Big World Breaks
Runtime: 36 minIt all began when the world-famous Seattle-based breaking crew, the Massive Monkees, invited Aaron Walker-Loud (Big World Breaks founder, drummer and director) to provide music at break dancing competitions and jams in the early 2000’s. Putting together a team for such events took a need for players with versatility, power and improvisation skills. Walker-Loud dug deep into the funk, soul, jazz and world music communities to build the right crew for the job; many of whom are alumni of the nationally acclaimed Seattle jazz programs at Garfield and Roosevelt High School. For this performance, Big World Breaks consists of Mikaela Romero (vocals & percussion), Darrius Willrich (keys and b.g. vocals), Ariel Loud, (alto sax), Naomi Siegel (trombone), Tobi Stone (flute & tenor sax), Daniel Rapport (guitar), Camilo Estrada (bass), Ival Galvez (percussion) and Aaron Walker-Loud (drums & M.D.). Big World Breaks now stands as a serious force to be reckoned with on stage and in the studio.

His songs are heavy on synthesizer, but not light on artistry. Reminiscent of 80s greats, Erik Blood’s music is like waking up on a cold morning but going back to bed covered in a cozy blanket.
