2020 Nightclub | Tallahassee, Florida | Photographer: Kristin Michelle Elizabeth
Saxophonist Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken have created a big gigantic family across the nation - pun intended. I had the pleasure of meeting these two about seven years ago in Tallahassee, Florida at their SOLD OUT show.
I had never heard of the duo prior to a couple months before, so I had no idea what to expect. I found my way to the front row; packed like a sardine. I was blown away by melodic sax beats and good vibes.
Since that night, I have got down with Big G probably fifteen times - each time as satisfying, if not more, than the time before. I can play their record on any given day and a huge smile comes to my face.
My writing recently went viral, and I experienced Internet Trolls for my first time. I was incredibly beaten up about it. Dominic comes out of nowhere and replies to a troll's thread on Twitter, "Congrats u made it! Hahahahaha" Supportive of their fans, humble, talented, inspiring, artistic, enthralling ... just amazing all the way around. MVP!
