Big Sam's Funky Nation

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Big Sam once was a standout trombonist in the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Funky Nation, his horn-driven, New Orleans-based solo project, is sure to bring on Mardi Gras pangs for the crowd at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage. No winter warmer may be more effective than a sweaty, funky performance by showman Big Sam, who had a recurring role - playing, naturally, a musician - on the HBO series "Treme.". At the Millennium Stage.
