BIG SAM'S FUNKY NATION - 04/07/18


Saturday, April 7, 2018 at 8:00 pm
Recital Hall $38
Sponsored by Renaissance Technologies

Big Sam’s Funky Nation plays big band funk inspired by the thrills of their New Orleans hometown. The band is led by trombone powerhouse, Big Sam Williams, who the San Francisco Chronicle calls “the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz.” The band’s performances are filled with blasts of brass, bursts of electric guitar, and the charisma of Big Sam, the frontman who sings, plays, dances, and involves the audience in everything he does. Big Sam has played with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Dave Matthews, Ozomatli, and Widespread Panic.

Watch the video.
The Funky Nation is a stellar group of world-class musicians who meet the challenges of their funky band leader. Come hear brassy music that mixes funk, rock, hip-hop and jazz!

Ryan White, of the Oregonian, says the band is “tight enough (and hot enough) to turn coal into a diamond!”
