Big Sam's Funky Nation

Known for a boisterous blend of funk, jazz, rock and hip-hop and a whole lot of Southern charm, Big Sam's Funky Nation might very well be The Big Easy's best kept secret. Merging bounce energy and jazz virtuosity, the band is known for their blend of jazz and hip-hop.

Opening artists to be announced

Omaha Performing Arts is once again partnering with Omaha's youth artist development program, BluesEd, in 2019. Local youth bands will offer preshow entertainment for selected performances. Other preshow performers include UNO jazz musicians and more. A full list of opening performers will be announced soon.
