Big Sam's Funky Nation is notorious for starting a relentless "NOLAdelic" funk party in every city that the band touches down in. A masterful blend of funk, rock, hip-hop, jazz and R&B captivates the audience while the powerful brass harmonies of the trombone and trumpet bring the groove to a different level. Big Sam Williams flaunts an electric stage presence while singing, dancing, and playing his horn in order to keep the show fully charged.
Big Sam is no stranger to the stage, honing his skills at the tender age of 19 with the world renowned Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Since then, he has excelled as a band leader, toured with Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint in support of the Grammy Nominated "River in Reverse" recording following Hurricane Katrina, appeared in a recurring role on the acclaimed HBO series "Treme", and has showcased at some of the most popular national and international music festivals.
