SOMA AFTER DARK: BIG PIPH & TOMORROW MAYBE at South on Main

SOMA After Dark: Big Piph & Tomorrow MaybeOn Friday, May 3, South on Main is celebrating SOMA After Dark’s second neighborhood evening event with one of the best hip-hop ensembles in the state – Big Piph and Tomorrow Maybe.

Show begins at 9 pm. Purchase advance tickets for $10 or pay $15 at the door. Tickets do not guarantee a seat. To reserve a table, please call (501) 244-9660. You must purchase tickets in advance to confirm your table reservation.

“One of Arkansas’ best bands” and “great hip-hop ensemble” are phrases often used to describe the collective known as Big Piph & Tomorrow Maybe. However, although they are deserving of both titles, these descriptions have proven to be far too confining. The creativity, discipline, and showmanship that BPTM put into their jazz, soul, funk, and rock infused hip-hop experiences will soon have them recognized as one of the best bands… period.

While already enjoying a successful solo rap career, Epiphany looked to further separate himself from the pack of competitive emcees by joining forces with a stellar live band, and in 2012 he did just that. Each of the seven members approaches the apex of their field and is a “frontman” in their own right. However, when their paths finally overlapped, the collective of (l-to-r) Paul Campbell (percussion), Dre Franklin (keys), Bijoux Pighee (vocals), Epiphany “Big Piph” Morrow (MC/lead vocalist), Dee Dee Jones (vocals), “Cool Hand” Lucas Murray (guitar), and Corey Harris (bass) formed something special.

Although the band has mostly displayed its energetic, interactive performances at Arkansas’ finest venues and festivals including Juneteenth, The Rev Room, Maxine’s, George’s Majestic Lounge, South on Main, U of A, and Ron Robinson Theatre, and Riverfest, they recently went international by completing an early 2015 African tour of Morocco, Algeria, and Equatorial Guinea. Sponsored by the U.S. department of state and American Music Abroad, the band not only held concerts for enthusiastic audiences, but also engaged in cultural engaged in cultural exchange with artists, students, and creatives by conducting workshops, speaking engagements, and musical collaborations. Still, whether at home or abroad, the band’s aim is always to provide the people not just a show, but a musical experience to remember… and that’s what Big Piph & Tomorrow Maybe deliver every time.
