The Mother Hips

We love good music almost as much as good beer.

Known as one of the premiere venues for Americana and roots music on the West Coast, the Big Room is Sierra Nevada’s beautiful live music and event venue located at our Chico, California brewery. With just 350 seats, the Big Room has gained a reputation for an intimate, small venue setting, and over the years, has hosted recording artists from all over the country. If you haven’t seen a Big Room show, we encourage you to check out this truly unique concert experience.

Robert Earl Keen

Big Room

It’s not always easy to sum up a career — let alone a life’s ambition — so succinctly, but those five words from Robert Earl Keen’s calling-card anthem just about do it. You can complete the lyric with the next five words — the ones routinely shouted back at Keen by thousands of fans a night (“and the party never ends!”) — just to punctuate the point with a flourish, but it’s the part about the journey that gets right to the heart of what makes Keen tick. Some people take up a life of playing music with the goal of someday reaching a destination of fame and fortune; but from the get-go, Keen just wanted to write and sing his own songs, and to keep writing and singing them for as long as possible.

“I always thought that I wanted to play music, and I always knew that you had to get some recognition in order to continue to play music,” Keen says. “But I never thought of it in terms of getting to be a big star. I thought of it in terms of having a really, really good career and writing some good songs, and getting onstage and having a really good time.” This Texas superstar and his traveling circus roll into the Big Room for one big night. Just remember his words to live by… “the road goes on forever but the party never ends!” Check him out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oe4NxjuI1G4

The T Sisters

Big Room

Back by popular demand!! The T Sisters are a vocally-driven contemporary folk band hailing from Oakland, California. The three sisters’ inventive songwriting is supported by their own acoustic instrumentation as well as upright bass (Steve Height), mandolin/guitar (Andrew Allen Fahlander), and drums (Marlon Aldana). When performing their lively set of originals and covers—occasionally in arresting a cappella–they captivate audiences with close harmonies, creative arrangements, and sassy performance style. Touching on elements of folk, Americana, gospel, R&B, bluegrass and soul, the T Sisters weave evocative stories with a sound that is at once modern and timeless. Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen have more than earned this headlining return to the Big Room by always getting the crowd immediately to the dance floor and keeping them there.
