The Big Smoke Family are purveyors of voodoo funk - a unique mix of punchy horns, heavy street beats, chants, samples and scratching. Following in the footsteps of modern funk bands such as Galactic and Trombone Shorty, and drawing inspiration from Mardi Gras Indians, James Brown, The New Mastersounds, The Herbaliser and Eddie Bo.
The BSF are electrifying performers with credits that include Dr. John, Maceo Parker, Zigaboo, Ernest Ranglin, Seal and Tom Jones. They can regularly be seen playing sell out gigs at Ronnie Scott’s, The Hootannay, Pizza Express, Bussey Building and many more and have played memorable festivals dates at Bestival, Secret Garden Party and the London Jazz Festival to name a few.
“A great modern take on the Mardi Gras Indian theme” - Galactic
“Nola-tastic” - The New Mastersounds
