Big Sam's Funky Nation in Pittsburgh

Big Sam and the Funky Nation

This past weekend, I was in Pittsburgh for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. I had the good fortune to see Big Sam's Funky Nation.

Big Sam is from New Orleans and I remember seeing him last year the Blue Nile. His energy exhausted me then, and he did it again.

Somehow, Big Sam managed to start a second line and have it follow him all around the Rex Theatre.

Nothing like great music . . . an definitely nothing like great brass!!
