The BBQ All Stars

Riding high with their hit, "My Baby Loves Barbecue" the BBQ All Stars are the perfect musical act for your event because what better way to enjoy enjoy BBQ and music than to have songs about the wonderful food we love. "Crazy 'Bout My Bacon," "Chicken Ain't Nothin' But A Bird," "High On The Hog," "When The Cows Come Home," and "Sou-EEE (This Little Piggie)" will have your audiences rockin', boppin' and singin' along. The key to the All Stars' lovability is their wonderful merging of our love of BBQ with music so often heard at its festivals. The show-stopper is Chris' own "Lil' Squealer", a custom-carved Piggie-Caster guitar with the face of his pig logo!

Family fun for Grandma and the little tykes to blues lovers and guys on bikes. Lead All Star, Chris Cassone, has performed on many of the country's top stages. He criss-crossed the US singing baritone with the legendary Doo Wop stars, The Earls, ("Remember Then") before leading his own band into the Silverdome alongside Carl Perkins, Ted Nugent, CSN, and the Oak Ridge Boys. He has worked with top entertainers like Ace Frehely (KISS), Robert DeNiro and Chazz Palminteri ("A Bronx Tale"), Dr. John, and has performed to the country's largest non-inaugural crowd (1.2 million) on the steps of the Capitol on 9-12-09.

The All Stars can perform with full band (rhythm section, keys and horns), a smaller rockabilly trio or for economy shows, Chris can get the crowd singing with just his Piggy-Caster and backing tracks. Call and let's discuss. We want to play every festival out there. Have RV, Will Travel.

Watch The BBQ All Stars' hit, "My Baby Loves Barbecue" and see for yourself. Book now, calendar is filling up. And who knows? Maybe your festival will be part of the new reality show based on our song (BBQ+music+travel.)
