The Big Smoke Family 

New Orleans Funk & Mardi Gras Grooves

The festival welcomes this amazing band to close the festival on the outdoor community stage on Monday 29 August.

The Big Smoke Family is a collective led by drummer Roy Pfeffer.

The band draw from the spirit of New Orleans Funk & Mardi Gras Indians, infusing their driving horn lines with heavy beats and live scratching.

Their sound is unique and their groove infectious and the BSF Members have played with the likes of Dr. John, Maceo Parker, Joss Stone, and Tom Jones and are already making serious waves on the UK music scene.

In addition to their residency at Ronnie Scott's bar, the band also regularly appear at some of the UK’s hottest festivals.
