Featured Performers

  • Proclaimed the “hot purveyors of funk” by Miami New Times, the New Orleans-based Big Sam’s Funky Nation band performs high-octane jams electrified by a mighty horn section. Band leader “Big Sam” Williams, former trombonist for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, has been praised as “the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz” (San Francisco Chronicle).
  • The first Cajun band to win a Grammy Award, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet performs a groundbreaking fusion of zydeco and Caribbean calypso sounds. Their 2013 release, From Bamako to Carencro, fuses American classics like John Coltrane’s “Bessie’s Blues” and James Brown’s “I’ll Go Crazy” with swing melodies.
  • Stooges Brass Band engages audiences with an innovative blend of traditional New Orleans brass sounds, contemporary jazz, and hip-hop beats. According to, “The Stooges Brass Band puts on one of the most entertaining, audience-interactive shows of any band on the scene.”
