Big Otter Creek isn’t just a band, it’s a waterway that cuts through founding member Daniel Gagnon’s family farm. Everybody has fond memories of canoeing it yearly during Canada’s Victoria Day weekend, May 24 to Ontarians. For newest member of BOC, drummer Frank Locicero, 2014 was his first trip. Frank’s grin says it all. “It’s a great weekend.” Frank joined the band in late 2013, bringing his hard rock drumming chops into BOC’s world of energetic folk country rhythms. “It was fun switching gears, we’re having a blast onstage.” It’s not hard to see Frank provides the ideal anchor to the varied styles within BOC’s sound. The rock solid rhythm section allows John and Dan to write in a wide range of styles within the general roots rock genre. They tend to split the lead guitar and harmonica parts between them, singing harmony to each other’s melodies and creating a warm, Eagles-style three-part harmony driven country rock / folk sound that has come to be expected from the group.
