Voted "Best Band" 2019

"Tess, Rob and the rest of the band are true professionals. It shows in every aspect of their performance. Tess is a multi talented singer, dancer, songwriter, and choreographer. She has the smoothest blues alto voice you will ever hear; which combined with her original music and perfect dance moves, makes for a complete entertainment immersion. I never miss a performance if I can help it. I recommend you do the same before the only place you can see them is LA, NY, Seattle, Nashville, or on their European tour."

"The Giantess is a roots-rock powerhouse of danceable grooves."

"Best entertainer in Southern Oregon!"

"You'd be missing out if you didn't go see them!"

"A very theatrical production. Love the music and dancing."

"Every time I have the privilege to see them perform, it reaffirms to me why they’re the best local group."

"Style, beat, intonation and diction with a well timed sense of graciousness."

"I like the way this band performs! They're musicians alright, but the STYLE and presence they show make not only listening to them, but watching them perform is a welcome respite from all the noise out there."

ABOUT

The Giantess is an original 4 piece band from Southern Oregon's Rogue Valley. The group formed in 2018 and is fronted by songwriters Tess Minnick (Vocals) and Rob Gunderson (Guitar). They are joined by Tony Kilcollins (Drums) and Richard Cole (Bass) to round out a simple 4 piece outfit with a very giant sound. The band performs with a Roots-Rock meets Jazz style. They mesh elements of Rock, Blues, Pop,  Jazz and Rockabilly to create eclectic songs with dance-able grooves and a variety of retro vibes. 

"The Giantess" is the larger-than-life alter ego of Minnick's imagination and the songs are her dramatic tales of adventure, requited and unrequited love and many other strange stories and mysterious characters that cross her path. The Giantess is in constant movement as she lounges on elaborate victorian style furniture, croons through a vintage microphone with ethereal harmonies and dances energetically to original grooves with touches of Rockabilly,  Jazz, Blues and Country nostalgia.
