Get ready to funk it up with New Orleans’ very own Sam Williams of Big Sam’s Funky Nation! Every Wednesday through the month of November, Sam Williams will be performing at The Jazz Playhouse at the Royal Sonesta from 7:30pm until 10:30pm.
By playing on these streets, you learn how to work your craft and entertain an audience. You can go to Julliard and Berklee all you want, but they won’t teach you how to rock a stage. It comes naturally in New Orleans. I’ve been here my whole life and rocking these streets. Even during Hurricane Katrina, I drove nine hours from San Antonio every weekend for two years just to play live. The sound out here is unlike anything else in the world. It’s not just a figure of speech—there’s music going all night, literally. ~ Sam Williams
