Movers and shakers: Big Sam’s Funky Na­tion

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Does it mat­ter what a funky don­key is as long as you shake it to the best of your abil­ity? Prob­a­bly not — so just get yours down to the Santa Fe Bandstand on the Plaza for Big Sam’s Funky Na­tion on Thurs­day, July 30, from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. You won’t want to miss the op­por­tu­nity to dance along with Big Sam Wil­liams, for­merly of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and one of the finest slide trom­bone play­ers to come out of New Or­leans. In ad­di­tion to “Shake That Funky Don­key,” the band’s reper­toire in­cludes “See Me Dance” and “Move It Funky,” among other rous­ing num­bers. But all you re­ally have to know about this con­cert is that Big Sam dances and plays the trom­bone at the same time, and you are quite un­likely to sit still for any of it. Bandstand con­certs are free. — J.L.
