OutdoorsInc is proud to sponsor an evening at the Levitt Shell, Memphis for the evening of Oct. 3rd. We will be celebrating our 40th annaversary with an evening with 'Big Sam's Funky Nation,' starting at 7pm.
According to the Associated Press, “Big Sam’s Funky Nation, one of New Orleans’ most energetic brass bands, had a crowd of thousands on its feet at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.” BSFN has also been featured on “LIVE! with Regis & Kelly,” and more recently, in HBO’s original series, “Treme,” where the band performs one of their songs for a Mardi Gras event, and Big Sam plays himself in multiple episodes, including scenes with Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint as they recorded the acclaimed Grammy-nominated album, River in Reverse.
So, come on out to the shell with a cooler and blanket and enjoy the music of Big Sam's Funky Nation celebrating 40 years of human powered recreation.
