About Big Wow

Clint Budge

A real tenor and a soulful voice that can cover an extensive range of the best hit songs. A true showman that never hesitates to jump in with the crowd and serenade the fans from all ages.

Raised in the small community of Malad Idaho, Clint received his gift of singing from sitting next to his mother at the piano while learning the best of the classics. His passion for singing can be seen on the faces of those he will sidle up to. Its is his enjoyment that shines through at each event. Take a listen...

Jody Baranco

Power, range, beauty, and finesse is what describes this lady and her voice. Jody's natural ability, allows her to cover a wide range of styles from Aretha to AC/DC. But that is what defines Big Wow.

Jody is a native of the Boise area and stumbled into being a female lead vocalist. It was just meant to be. She too, was raised in music sitting next to her mom on piano. With some lessons at an early age and years of choir experience, her ears gained the gift of hearing harmonies that many singers might find a chore.  This gift gave her the ability to blend well and with Clint, they are definitely one the best matched voice combos for miles around.  Take a listen, you will be an instant fan!
