    Sat, November 2, 2013 Doors: 8:00 pm / Show: 9:00 pm $15.00 http://www.reddevillounge.com/event/346091-big-sams-funky-nation-san-francisco/ Big Sam’s Funky Nation is a driving force of urban funk. Ryan White, of the Oregonian, says the band is “tight enough (and hot enough) to turn coal into a diamond!” The band is led by trombone powerhouse, Big Sam Williams, formerly the trombonist for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who the San Francisco Chronicle calls “the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz.” Big Sam refuses to let the audience sit still. Between the band’s solos, Big Sam’s signature dance moves and his distinctive trombone riffs, the energy level is high voltage when this band takes the stage! The Funky Nation is a stellar group of world-class musicians who meet the challenges of their funky band leader. The band is comprised of Andrew Baham on Trumpet/Vocals/Keys, Takeshi Shimmura on Guitar, Chocolate MILK on Drums, and Eric Vogel on Bass in addition to Big Sam on Trombone/Vocals. BSFN’s signature Noladelic Powerfunk sound masterfully combines a rock sensibility with improv-style associated with jazz and the horn-heavy front section that’s the hallmark of big band funk. Big Sam began playing with the Dirty Dozen at the tender age of 19 before striking out on his own and creating the Funky Nation. Big Sam powered-up the horn section on the critically acclaimed, Grammy nominated, “River in Reverse” and is prominently featured in "Hot as a Pistol, Keen as a Blade" the concert tour DVD. While touring with Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint, in the Fall of 2006 and Summer of 2007, he earned consistent reviews as a musical force and star soloist. Big Sam has played with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Dave Matthews, Ozomatli, and Widespread Panic. He has also shared the stage with U2 and Green Day for the emotional and energetic re-opening of the Superdome which was broadcast live on Monday Night Football. BSFN is a festival favorite across North America and their contagious tunes and memorable live performances have attracted fans far and wide, ranging from France, to the United Kingdom, to Greece, to Brazil, to Canada. BSFN is a favorite on the festival circuit and has sealed its mark on the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage, Gathering of the Vibes, Telluride Blues & Brews, Doheny Blues Festival, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo Arts & Music Festival, Wakarusa, Voodoo Music Experience, Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival, LEAF & many more. http://bigsamsfunkynation.com/ Dylan Chambers & The Midnight Transit are one of the Hottest New Bay Area Bands! Dylan Chambers has recently signed with and is currently being produced by the Legendary Producer/Musician/Songwriter Narada Michael Walden (one of Billboard's TOP 10 Producers of All Time! Producing the likes of Whitney, Mariah, Aretha just to name a few) Narada Michael Walden has compared Dylan Chambers and Vinsanity of DCMT to a modern Otis Redding/Smokey Robinson and Steve Cropper! With a growing presence DCMT is the buzz in the air. They capture the 60's/70's vibe speaking about peace, love and positive change, while staying relevant to the now generation. Dylan Chambers is the son of Lester Chambers, lead singer and front man of The Chambers Brothers. So you know he was born to rock! He is definitely carrying on the passion and musical heritage while keeping his own unique sound and style! Midnight Transit have individually played all over the US from the House of Blues and The Troubadour in Hollywood, To Lincoln Center in New York, including the festival scene, such as Earthdance, Seattle Hempfest, Summer Arts, Sacramento Hempfest, Venice Beach Musicfest and Performing at both the 40th Anniversary of The Summer of Love and 40th Anniversary of Woodstock "WestFest" in Golden Gate Park for over 50,000 people. Recently Dylan traveled to N.Y.C to Perform at The City Winery, ranked one of the Top 100 music venues in the US for the "Music For Occupy" CD Release Party. Dylan has shared stages with Steve Cropper (Blues Brothers, Booker T MGs) Eric Burden ( Animals War ) Wolfman Jack ( DJ personality ) and Joe Walsh ( Eagles ). Midnight Transit have been hard at work in the studio writing new material and crafting a sound that blends Riff-Riding Bluesy Rock and Funky Vintage Soulful Pop to make you want to move and keep you in the groove! Many fans compare their look and sound to a mix of Lenny Kravitz and The Red Hot Chili Peppers meets Otis Redding! From the younger rock/dance crowd to the older fans of Jimi Hendrix and The Chambers Brothers, DCMT bridges the age gap and makes music that impresses your heart, mind, body, and soul! http://www.midnighttransit.com/
