The line-up includes artists like Tedeschi Trucks Band, Dr.John, Walter Trout, Sonny Landreth, Joe Louis Walker, Matt Schofield, The Wood Brothers, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Bobby Lee Rodgers and many more.

Some of them are; Come See About Me, Learn How to Love, Bound for Glory, Simple Things, etc. Their debut album Revelator grabbed a Grammy Award for Best Blues Album. Later they were seen fetching awards at Blues Music Awards. Revelator was hailed as a “masterpiece” by the Rolling Stone magazine while USA Today called it “outstanding”. The Tedeschi Trucks Band also comprises harmony singers Mike Mattison and Mark Rivers, J.J Johnson and Tyler Greenwell on drums and others on keyboards and saxophone. Savannah Music Festival, Crossroads Guitar Festival, and Fuji Rock Festival are a few among many festivals the band has been a part of. Carnegie Hall and Hollywood Bowl are also among the prestigious venues they have performed at.
Big Sam’s Funky Nation is another powerhouse joining the stage at the Boca Blues Festival. BSFN are known for their massive energy they bring onto the stage during live performances. Big Sam’s dance moves and his one-of-a-kind trombone riffs set the stage on fire. The group is an ensemble of some of the best musicians in the music industry. In the past the funk/jazz/rock band has worked with Dave Mathews, Karl Denson, James Brown, Ozomatli, Widespread Panic, U2, and Green Day. Eric Podolsky of Jambase lauded the band in these words: “BSFN is soul food to get us through the week” whereas according to Rachel Levitin of WeLoveDC Big Sam has “got the chops of Louis, the charisma of Dizzy, the oomph of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and the understanding that it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing…and a whole lotta funk.”
The Big Sam’s Funky Nation was formed in 2001 meeting with critical and commercial acclaim. Also known as Sammie Williams, the band has performed at some major music festivals. Some of them are; Bonnaroo, Gathering of the Vibes, Austin City Limits, Voodoo Music Experience, South by Southwest, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Their list of achievements does not end here as in 2009 they were awarded the Big Easy Music Award and Louisiana Division of the Arts Fellowship. BSFN has come up several albums since their inception. Birth of a Nation, Take Me Back, King of the Party, and Funky Donkey are among them. Known for hits like Tried and Temped, Get Out My Life Woman, Marry Anna, One More Day, Fall Too Fast, The Wood Brothers are back for another breathtaking performance this year. Offering Folk Americana, blue grass, blues and country, the two brothers, Chris Wood and Oliver Wood formed the group in 2006.
