Big Sam's Funky Nation:
Hailing from New Orleans as the former trombone player of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Big Sam always entertains audiences with his exhilarating brand of high-voltage funk, rock, jazz, and hip-hop, termed “Noladelic Powerfunk.” The San Francisco Chronicle asserts “[Big Sam is] the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz.”
Accompanying Big Sam are Andrew Baham on Trumpet/Vocals, Andrew Block on Guitar, Chocolate MILK on Drums and Eric Vogel on Bass. Together, BIG SAM’S FUNKY NATION engages and delights audiences across the country with their high energy performance and showmanship. Big Sam’s Funky Nation has wowed crowds at major festivals and events, including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Gathering of the Vibes, SXSW, Jam Cruise and countless others. According to the Associated Press, “Big Sam’s Funky Nation, one of New Orleans’ most energetic brass bands, had a crowd of thousands on its feet at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.” BSFN has also been featured on "LIVE! with Regis & Kelly," and more recently, in HBO's original series, "Treme," where the band performs one of their songs for a Mardi Gras event, and Big Sam plays himself in multiple episodes, including scenes with Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint as they recorded the acclaimed Grammy-nominated album, River in Reverse.
Though the band is continuously on the road, playing major music festivals and venues nationwide and abroad, BIG SAM’S FUNKY NATION is also available for private engagements such as weddings, campus events, and corporate functions. A Big Sam show is one not to be missed, and one that your audience will talk about for ages to come.
& The Blue Beat Review
The modern soul songs of Quinn Deveaux, sung in his sweet tenor over a spare guitar or carried by his band’s bright tones, evoke old images aplenty—from those gutbucket barrooms where rock-n-roll was born, to the pine-walled shacks, nearby, where its gospel-forebears rent their souls. But this artist’s singular sound, making old tones new, is Quinn’s alone. His acclaimed Blue Beat Review has been thrilling San Francisco’s lovers of rollicking early R&B, and a good time, for years. And now, with two LPs of his own fresh tunes set to drop this fall, the Bay Area’s best-kept secret is stepping out. Get on board: he’ll take you there, wherever you’ve got to go.
