Big Sam's Funky Nation have established their presence on the forefront of the NOLA music scene. Trombone powerhouse andbsfn main 300x171 Music/Events band leader "Big Sam" Williams, formerly of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, has been celebrated as "the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz" by the San Francisco Chronicle and the band has been touted for consistently "bringing a straight raw party" by Jambase. BSFN is a festival favorite across North America and their contagious tunes and memorable live performances have attracted fans far and wide. BSFN's music (described as Noladelic Powerfunk) converges omni-present influences of jazz, rock, hip-hop and funk together into an unexpected and distinctively bold sound. BSFN is a musical force with a memorable live show and the chops to keep it funky all through the night.
In today's ever expanding market of musicians and musical acts, finding true roots music built on heritage and yet staying original becomes harder and harder to find. Herein lies the foundation for one of the most explosive blues acts coming out of the Southeast today, The Shane Pruitt Band.
