COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—Big B left a huge impression on The Black Sheep, on Aug. 23. He was the direct support, The Widowhood Effect was the opening act and Everlast was the headliner. He provided vocals, accompanied by Los Perez on drums and Jonathan Williams on guitar and keyboard. Perez and Williams also assisted with backup vocals.
Williams sat behind his keyboard setup and began to play the guitar and Perez sat waiting for his mark. Shortly after, Big B made his way onto the stage and was greeted with applause. He took a seat at the front and center stage and began his performance with “Out Here In Cali”. Afterwards—he briefly joked with the crowd, mentioned he had recorded the next song with Everlast and continued his recital with “Before I Leave This Place”.
Prior to “Here Comes The Lightning”, Big B mentioned he had a bracelet on his ankle and had to leave it on for six weeks. As he was wrapping up his story, an audience member requested for his next song to be “Hooligan”. During the second chorus—pieces of paper resting on Williams’ keyboard fell to the ground beside him, as he continued to strum his guitar. As the song continued, Big B insisted everyone to hold their arms up wave them back and forth towards him.
Before Perez and Williams provided the instrumental for “Sinner”, Big B encouraged the audience to sing along with him. As he sang the song, he modified the lyrics to include Colo. in it. As he did with “Here Comes The Lightning”, he advised the crowd to follow his lead with waving their arms from side-to-side. Afterwards, he mentioned he was a fan of old school Hip-Hop and provided his own rendition of Biz Markie’s “Just A Friend”.
After Big B mentioned he was part of the music group, OPM, the crowd cheered. He dedicated the song, “Heaven Is a Halfpipe”, to a friend of his. Then, he reminisced when they were traveling through Utah and how he had to his marijuana in Williams’ hair. Onlookers laughed with them, while the smell of marijuana populated the venue. After ending with “Hooligan”, Big B introduced Williams and Perez. He went onto say he was looking for his next visit.
“Let It Rain”, “G-State”, “Bad Girl”, “West Coast Summer” and “Hangovers With You” were also part of Big B’s set.
