"Big Sam" Williams

Saturday, September 17, 2011 - 4:00pm

Prepare to put on your dancing shoes and get your groove on as trombonist and band leader "Big Sam" Williams joins Bonnie Johnson for some conversation and "musical gumbo" this Saturday on Colors of Jazz. Formerly the youngest player in the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the New Orleans native and front man is now leading Big Sam's Funky Nation, touring the world and spreading the joy of music. The San Francisco Chronicle dubs Sam as "top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz".  Seen on HBO's Treme, the band takes to the stage fusing elements of jazz improvisation and rock with high-energy urban funk. Be sure to tune in at 4pm - Saturday, September 17th  - It's sure to be a party. 

Big Sam's Funky Nation appears at The Music Hall Loft in Portsmouth, NH for two performances:

Sunday, September 18, 2011 - 7:00 PM  &  9:00 PM
