Additional Information

Mayne Stage and Act One Pub are bringing you the best of New Orleans with Big Sam's Funky Nation. We're serving our Chef's special Jambalaya and will also have $5 Pimm's Cup, Hurricanes and more!

Hailing from New Orleansas 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.
