“Big Sam” Williams, is a New Orleans musical treasure. Big Sam has built a name for himself playing trombone in the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, as well as backing up artists like Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, and Elvis Costello. He also had a recurring role in the acclaimed HBO series Treme, about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Founded on the stage at Tipitinas in NOLA in 2010, Boukou Groove is the brainchild of singer/producer Donnie Sundal and New Orleans guitar luminary Derwin “Big D” Perkins. Sundal, sharing stages and recording with the likes of Sam Bush, Col.Bruce Hampton and Nigel Hall of Lettuce creates an infectious blend of energy and enthusiasm as he showcases his multi-octave ranging vocals while sustaining his brand of lavish Moog bass lines. Big D (Jon Cleary and The Absolute Monster Gentleman, Bonnie Raitt and Dr.John) provides his smooth and funky guitar licks largely based on improvisation and feel alone.
