About Big Sam

A native of New Orleans, Big Sam first rose to fame as a member of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, whose touring schedule kept the young trombonist on the road for 300 days a year. The group performed with bands from all genres, backing up Widespread Panic one minute before sharing the stage with Dave Matthews Band the next. A fan of diverse bands like Parliament Funkadelic, Jimi Hendrix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Living Colour, and Prince,

"We play music for everybody. It's not just funk; that's the foundation, but the music goes from funk to rock to wild jazz. It's music about love and partying. Everyone can get down with that."

About Boukou Groove

With the lively international release of their debut LP in 2012 “A lil’ Boukou in Your Cup” and the 2015 sophomore release “Let The Groove Ride” gives Boukou Groove the ability to maintain a dynamic tour schedule. The band provides audiences with a genre-bending collective, touching on elements of New Orleans Funk, R&B, Soul and Blues. Founded on the stage at Tipitinas in NOLA in 2010, Boukou Groove is the brainchild of singer/producer Donnie Sundal and New Orleans guitar luminary Derwin “Big D” Perkins. Sundal, sharing stages and recording with the likes of Sam Bush, Col.Bruce Hampton and Nigel Hall of Lettuce creates an infectious blend of energy and enthusiasm as he showcases his multi-octave ranging vocals while sustaining his brand of lavish Moog bass lines. Big D (Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentleman, Bonnie Raitt and Dr.John) provides his smooth and funky guitar licks largely based on improvisation and feel alone. Together, no matter what the venue, the band provides their distinguishing style and creates a kinetic environment that’s easily spread throughout the audience.

As they continue to refine their unique style and build upon the momentum of the release of “A lil’ Boukou in Your Cup” with the 2015 release of “Let The Groove Ride”, 2016 promises to be an unprecedented year for the band as they continue to log dates at venues and festivals throughout the globe.

“Together, these guys make some beautiful funky music”. A favorite song of the band is “A lil’ Boukou in Your Cup.” Listening to the groovy song you’ll agree that as far as funk goes, “[They] got just what you need, too much is never enough.” The music has a great rhythm and flow to it that can really give you a kinetic energy to your day”
