The Big Gig isn’t limited to those pursuing a career in music. Yes, it provides an intriguing and comprehensive method for independent musicians who want to break into the highly competitive music industry. But of even wider-scale importance, The Big Gig is a metaphor for the big picture of life. Throughout the book’s 22 chapters, it’s obvious the man known as the Minister of Groove is richly gifted as a motivational life coach on the subject of success.

Zoro is prolific in his passion for his craft. He previously authored the No. 1 award-winning and best-selling book and DVD package The Commandments of R&B Drumming (with The Commandments of R&B Drumming Play Along Book and CD). His third book, The Commandments of Early Rhythm & Blues, is another award-gathering musicians’ manual.

According to masters of the music business, Zoro has earned the credibility to inspire readers to aspire higher.

Grammy-winning recording artist Lenny Kravitz writes in his foreword to The Big Gig: “Zoro’s heart, discipline and passion are what propelled him to greatness. … His music and life lessons are about using your God-given talents to the maximum.”

Multi-award winning producer and music icon Quincy Jones says of the book: “The Big Gig is a blueprint for a successful life. You will be inspired beyond your imagination!”

And Davey Johnstone, musical director and guitarist for Elton John, weighs in: “Because of his success and longevity as a player, author, educator, clinician and motivational speaker, Zoro is the only one I can think of who is legitimately qualified to cover the broad scope of this book with total authority. Zoro does an extraordinary job of merging the art of performing with the art of commerce and gives a blueprint for connecting heart, soul, mind and body to your craft and life’s purpose.”
