Standing at 6' 7 and weighing over 300 pounds, Christian "Big New York" de Mesones is a larger than life showman and bassist. He is best known for fronting Groove Skool Band, but now sells out shows as a headliner. His SRO NYE concert at K2 Restaurant & Lounge garnered critical acclaim, as he performed  with some of the best local talent in the DMV, including Billboard-charting guest artists. Ronald Jackson from smoothjazzride.com wrote: "Witnessing the extraordinary talents of Big New York was as astounding and moving as an earthquake!!!"

Expect a very entertaining performance as Christian combines smooth, sophisticated grooves with flavors of old school R&B and Latin Jazz.
