BIG POP is a band that shatters boundaries and defies all expectations. Founded in 2021, this powerhouse collective is led by the extraordinary Jeri Sapronetti, a guitar hero and vocalist whose raw talent and captivating stage presence have earned the admiration of their peers and fans alike.


Artist Spotlight


Akron’s Big Pop, a five-piece, pop-rock band formed in 2021. Longtime Akron musicians Jeri Sapronetti and Corey Jenkins both saw their successful bands fizzle out during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sapronetti’s psych-rock group Time Cat was touring nationally and had the chance to open for Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders in Akron in 2016. When Time Cat and Jenkins’ group Fancy Legs disbanded, Sapronetti reached out to Jenkins, whom she’s known since 2009, about collaborating on new music. She and Jenkins brought in additional local artists to fill out the supergroup, which they named Big Pop.
