The Big Easy Brawlers are a unique band that reflects the New Orleans music scene masterfully blending brass band with funk, soul, hip hop and footwork! The band's sound is continuously evolving as they keep up with the changing pop music landscape. What makes the band unique is the complexity of musical changes with a solid principle, have fun. From dance routines to epic solos to crowd surfing, comedic competition to motivational speeches; even on an off night these guys will make sure you party until you can party no more!

When you think of New Orleans, the city’s foremost flambeaux-lit traditions of Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street, voodoo, Po’ boys, beads, gumbo, and second line undoubtedly come to mind. You can also count Big Sam’s Funky Nation amongst those NOLA treasures.

Known for a boisterous blend of funk, jazz, rock and hip-hop, nothing short of seismic live “experiences, and a whole lot of Southern charm, Big Sam’s Funky Nation might very well be The Big Easy’s best kept secret. No other place could birth such an undeniable, unpredictable, and downright unique collective.As much as Big Sam’s Funky Nation represents the beating heart of New Orleans, they ultimately do so for funk music as well.

“When you see us live or listen to our records, we’re all going to have a good time,” he leaves off. “That’s what funk is all about. That’s what New Orleans is all about. That’s what Big Sam’s Funky Nation is all about. If you come to a show, you’re going to party. That’s what we’re here for.” The frontman (trombone & lead vocals) personally draws on over two decades in the game, spanning everything from 300 shows per year during his days in Dirty Dozen Brass Band and gigs backing up Widespread Panic and Dave Matthews Band to recording and touring with Allen Toussaint and Elvis Costello. Additionally, he would be sought out for a recurring role on the critically acclaimed HBO series Treme.
