Big Faith formed in August 2004, and has since performed many events and venues in the Philadelphia area, including the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. Rooted in jazz and classical music, this duo is strongly influenced by many other styles, such as Brazilian, Celtic, Tango, Bulgarian, Rock/Pop, and Appalachian. Their sound has been described as earthy, sophisticated, romantic, contemporary, and distinctive. Violinist Monique Cannière hails from rural Gaines, Pennsylvania; providing expertise in classical and folk genres. With an extensive background in vocal training, she often sings on gigs as well. Guitarist Joe DaCrema has played in and around Philadelphia in jazz settings for years. His sound is an eclectic mix of classical and Brazilian music combined with jazz and his own unique harmonic/rhythmic concept.
Big Faith can easily add a bassist and/or a drummer upon request.
Big Faith has provided dinner/background music for ceremonies and awards banquets, country clubs, assisted living homes, weddings, and corporate events. They are sure to create a warm, relaxed, and romantic atmosphere for your next occasion.
