Full Show Friday: Big Sam's Funky Nation - Jazz Saint Javier 2018

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's. These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Big Sam's Funky Nation!

Every April we have a special showcase for bands who are playing this years Jazzfest in NOLA. Today we will focus on Big Sam's Funky Nation who will be playing Saturday May 2nd on the Congo Square Stage.

Unfortunately due to the outbreak of Covid19, Jazzfest has been rescheduled for October (no official date as of yet). Hopefully all of the scheduled acts are healthy and will be performing then, but since we crafted these posts before the outbreak, RtBE will still post them this month and will regroup/revisit things in the fall when (hopefully) things return to semi-normal 

Last year Big Sam's Funky Nation was one of the highlights of Jazzfest for RtBE, so we wanted to start this month of Full Show Friday's focusing on artists playing the festival in 2020 with them. This show is from 2018 from Jazz Saint Javier and it shows off the Nation's funky style and killer showmanship from Big Sam himself. 

The Nation are dynamite and we can't wait to catch them funking up the fairgrounds on Saturday May 2nd. Pro-shot, pro-sound, Enjoy:
