Big Room
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.

Holiday Swing with Maria Muldaur & John Jorgenson

Join masterful singer Maria Muldaur and virtuoso instrumentalist John Jorgenson as they put a jazzy spin on holiday classics and share rarely heard gems for the 20’s and 30’s.

The first time Maria and John performed together, the musical chemistry was obvious. Maria has curated a fantastic selection of wonderfully hip holiday tunes that John has put his special spin on. Expect holiday cheer wrapped up in songs both naughty and nice, with a large dose of swing!

“Muldaur mines the finest of alternative holiday music that jumps off the stage with her brazen, authentic vocals.” Cabaret Scenes Magazine.

John Jorgenson is one of the most respected guitar players in the world” Los Angeles Times.

Holiday fun for the whole family. Rounding out the band is Rick Reed on percussion and Simon Planting on Bass. Get your tickets early!!
