THE BAND 2017-12-11T15:59:06+00:00

Throwing the Best Party Possible – Since 1996!

Performing since 1996, Bigg Romeo has a wealth of wedding business knowledge at your disposal. And of course the music is nothing less than spectacular.

Showcasing eight of Philadelphia’s premier musicians, the band draws from diverse musical styles as well as the their clients. The perfect wedding is a team effort.  Something that we’ve taken to heart and have fine tuned over 20 years.

Coming from extensive professional backgrounds, Bigg Romeo plays songs from several eras and multiple genres. Review our song list and multimedia files.   You’ll find that Bigg Romeo can expertly adapt to your musical preferences while filling the dance floor.

No wonder the band was voted “BEST OF PHILLY” by Philadelphia Magazine and has won Wedding Wire’s “Couples Choice” for six straight years. And no wonder Bigg Romeo can boast more than 125 5-star reviews.

What Makes Us Different Than The Rest?

What makes Bigg Romeo different from most bands? We are constantly working.  The band plays at least 100 dates per year. You can find us in casinos and clubs from Ocean City, MD to Allentown, PA from the Jersey Shore to Lancaster. When we’re not playing, we’re rehearsing. We love playing music together and never pass up an opportunity to do just that!

Bigg Romeo performs for capacity crowds not just at weddings and clubs, but also at corporate parties, conventions and special events. Bigg Romeo puts you right in the middle of a spontaneous party with their powerful, dynamic renditions of 60’s soul, 70’s disco, 80’s retro, 90’s dance classics, and today’s hottest pop tunes.

No two shows are alike. Each performance is customized and tailored to suit the event. Bigg Romeo combines virtuosity and showmanship while leaving a lasting impression so positive that you’ll want to see them again and again.

The Band

FRANCO SICILIA JR.
FRANCO SICILIA JR.Band Leader, Vocals
A well seasoned Master of Ceremonies, Franco is a couple’s best friend when planning a wedding and always there for the little things that matter. All roads lead to Franco with Bigg Romeo, E-mail, phone calls etc. Available 7 days a week to our clients, Franco is hands down one of the most reviewed and talked about band leaders on theknot.com and weddingwire.com message boards. BRIDES LOVE FRANCO! He loves them.

A fantastic singer and performer, Franco is also multi-lingual and can sing in several languages including Spanish, Italian and even Hebrew. Even though he wears a lot of hats in the Bigg Romeo family, you will always get passion, love and hope out of every encounter with Franco. Bigg Romeo has been a labor of love for Franco for over 22 years and that will shine through in your day to day dealings with him.

SANDY COSTELLO
SANDY COSTELLOVocals
Sandy is definitely one of the best female singers out there by far! Even though she is a rocker at heart she excels in all styles of music from pop, r&b, rap, country, ballads, etc. She is full of energy with her non-stop dancing across the stage and brings her A-game to every show. A professionally trained singer, Sandy has been knocking audiences out for over 2 decades with her strong vocals. She pulls no punches and puts it all out there. Sandy is fun to watch and she is a pro up there. Even if she isn’t singing lead, she’s singing back-up vocals and generally breaking about 2 tambourines a month. Her energy and enthusiasm are tops and her versatility shows in all she does.
BABAFEMI CLAXTON
BABAFEMI CLAXTONGuitar, Vocals
Ever since Baba heard the first Kiss Alive album at age 10, he wanted to play guitar. He and his neighborhood friends would build cardboard guitars and with the help of a record player, put on “KISS Concerts” on the driveway. He’s probably been on a stage ever since. Baba’s love for music and his guitars shines through in every performance. Baba’s favorite thing to do onstage, is making the rest of the band laugh, mid song, and generally being goofy. Baba is an endorsee of Clayton Picks and Accessories.
RON CRABTREE
RON CRABTREEBass Guitar, Vocals
Ronnie-C or “Crabby”, as friends refer to him, is an irreplaceable, multi-talented part of “Bigg Romeo.” He is a phenomenal bass player and vocalist and is just an all around talented musician. A master of the 4 and 5 string bass guitar, Crabby also sings lead vocals, can play the guitar and drums and works especially hard to make the band sound good as the resident sound man and guy who knows what “MOST” of the buttons do. We know many people are always worried about the volume… Crabby has it on lock. No worries.
ANDREA BARRETO
ANDREA BARRETOVocals
For the last seven years Andrea Barreto has made her presence known as a force to be reckoned with as a member of BIGG ROMEO. She loves to sing and is a natural entertainer. Her powerhouse soulful vocals are unparalleled and her silly antics and unstoppable energy onstage are unmatched. Her range and diversity fit perfectly with BIGG ROMEO’s repertoire. It’s hard to believe that this powerful of a voice can come out of such a tiny little lady. She is the real deal.
JOE ALBRIGHT
JOE ALBRIGHTDrums, Percussion
Joe has been playing drums professionally for over 25 years. He awesomely lays down a beat through all of our dance and party music and is locked into the rhythm section tight. Joe brings a special drive to the band and Crabby and Joe make you feel that beat right there in the middle of your chest with an amazing thump that just makes you want to dance.
DAVE DRISCOLL
DAVE DRISCOLLKeyboards, Guitar, Vocals
Dave has been playing professionally since 1994, getting his start performing with local and regional acts up and down the east coast.
Trained on piano since age 4, Dave has studied classical, jazz and everything in between. He is a graduate of Temple University with a degree in Composition and Arranging. In addition to the keyboard stack you see in the back of our stages, Dave also makes up the battery of our wedding ceremony and cocktail music offerings, and is always the first member on site.
KENNY NIEWINSKI
KENNY NIEWINSKISaxophones
Kenny has been playing saxophone for longer than he wants to admit to us. (For over 31 years) He’s been the musical director for the Fralinger String Band and a current marching member. He plays Bari, Tenor and Alto Sax. He loves horn bands and that big sound and has been playing professionally since 1998. Work hard, play hard.

Bigg Romeo is proud to be endorsed by 64 Audio.
Baba, Dave, Franco, Joe and Sandy all wear their custom fitted in-ear monitors.
