I saw Rebirth Brass Band before the Roots last week, So know I'm going to see Big Sam this week. I wrote on him when he played Bear Creek last year.
Thurs. 7/16 Big Sam's Funky Nation and Josh Dions. Both are returning favorites at Sullivan Hall. Big Sam is a tromobone player from New Orleans and puts on an incredibly energetic show-- very funky, and very "N'awlins good time." He was just awarded a Big Easy Music Award for "Best Funk Group 2008".
Opening for Big Sam is New York based performer Josh Dion. You may have heard him with The Josh Dion Band , which broke up at the end of the year. Josh is an excellent drummer -- he's got soulful vocals and also plays the harmonica over his beats.
See you There!
