Big Sam's Funky Nation/Essential Groove 

When: Tue., March 14, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $15 ADV, $17 DOS
Big Sam fronts Funky Nation, a contemporary force of funk and rock from down south. Culled together from years of talent and collaboration, the band is one of many bringing the upbeat sounds and vibes from New Orleans to venues around the world. "I've been up and down with my sound," Sam told us last year. "It started out being more like an instrumental jazz-song type of group. Then over the years it evolved into a James Brown style, then it even got pretty rockin'. We started rocking pretty hard. It's weird, because I love all music. Like Funkadelic: They're funky, but it's pretty edgy and rocking. I'm going back to the funk now. It's so much more fun to dance to. When we play a funk beat, everyone's got smiles on their faces.” (Sandy)
