Big Sam's Funky Nation
Big Sam’s Funky Nation has been honing their unique brand of “Noladelic PowerFunk” for more than a decade. It's high-energy music that mixes funk, rock ‘n’ roll, hip-hop and jazz into the same pot, gluing everything together with the brassy influence—and heavy grooves—of New Orleans. From national performances at Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits, to hometown appearances at Voodoo Fest and Jazz Fest, Big Sam’s Funky Nation have built their reputation onstage. The band’s live performances are legendary, filled with blasts of brass, bursts of electric guitar and the charisma of Big Sam, a frontman who sings, plays, dances and involves the audience in everything he does. You don’t just watch a Funky Nation show; you become part of the show.
