Proudly hailing from New Orleans, Big Sam's Funky Nation has been electrifying audiences with his brand of high-voltage funk for years. Formerly the trombone player of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Big Sam has been an innovator of the music flowing from a revitalized New Orleans. The music of BSFN, (described as Noladelic Powerfunk) converges omni-present influences of rock, hip-hop, jazz and funk together into an unexpected and distinctively bold sound. The master musicians comprising BSFN-- Andrew Baham on Trumpet/Vocals/Keys, Takeshi Shimmura on Guitar, Chocolate MILK on Drums, and Eric Vogel on Bass-- provide a sturdy platform to keep the musical party rolling strong as Big Sam, their charismatic front man, engages and delights the crowd. BSFN is a musical force with a memorable live show and the chops to keep it funky all through the night!
