Big Sam's Funky Nation

Big Sam's Funky Nation


BSFN is New Orleans horns and grooves mixed with 70's funk ,80's rock with today's style of music with original and old school material all to make up one hell of a pot of GUMBO!!!


Big Sam is a former member of the world renowned Dirty Dozen Brass Band and has traveled all over the world but wanted to branch out and do his own thing so Jan.2001 he formed Big Sam's Funky Nation. Big Sam's shows are very high energy and always crowd pleasing. When he blows his trombone his sound is so enourmous, soulful, and powerful it drives the crowd wild. He's a great dancer as well. He's like 300 something lbs and moves around like a butterfly that never stops. He just keeps going and going and going like the energizer bunny.
