The Mother Hips

We love good music almost as much as good beer.

Known as one of the premiere venues for Americana and roots music on the West Coast, the Big Room is Sierra Nevada’s beautiful live music and event venue located at our Chico, California brewery. With just 350 seats, the Big Room has gained a reputation for an intimate, small venue setting, and over the years, has hosted recording artists from all over the country. If you haven’t seen a Big Room show, we encourage you to check out this truly unique concert experience.

Ronnie Baker Brooks is one of the most dynamic blues performers the Big Room has ever presented. Get your tickets early! Ronnie Baker Brooks just released Times Have Changed (Mascot) on January 20, 2017, his first album in ten years. The album is produced by Steve Jordan who has worked with Keith Richards, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer and Eric Clapton. Brooks was born in Chicago and started playing guitar around age six. At 19, he joined his father, Lonnie Brooks who by then had influenced some of the most well-known bluesman of our history: Jimmy Reed, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Johnny Winter, and Junior Wells. For 12 years, the two would tour together, putting Ronnie out front with Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, and Koko Taylor.

Amy Helm Band

Tickets go on sale August 13th at 10 AM and they’re available at or in person at the gift shop.

Yes, gift shop tickets are back!!

Amy Helm began connecting with audiences early in life, playing her first gig in her early teens in a Manhattan bar and drifting informally through a series of combos before her father (Levon Helm) recruited her to join his live band. She also absorbed musical and personal inspiration from her mother, noted singer/songwriter Libby Titus; and her stepfather, Steely Dan co-mastermind Donald Fagen, who offered Amy additional opportunities to find herself as a performer.

Come see Amy and her band as she makes her first Big Room performance!
