About The Stilts
Through the course of 250 shows, STILTS has developed a signature and defined musical personality. The four-piece out of New York City combines a dance-begging groove with tight funk, rock ‘n roll, jam, disco, reggae, bluegrass and latin styles. Their originals range from long compositions to more simple and poignant structures. Vocal harmonies and thoughtful, playful lyrics play a large part in their music as do boundless improvisational moments.
Previously known as the band Big Meat (myspace.com/bigmeatmusic), STILTS has performed from the tip of Maine to the bottom of Florida developing a large following both at their shows and online (archive.org/details/BigMeat). STILTS originated in Northeast CT in 2000, back when all the members were in high school. Their sound matured through college, and in 2005 they hit the road. Since that time STILTS has been performing at Festivals, Colleges, and Clubs all over the east coast.
