Its been a while since we welcomed some fresh names to the Diplomats of Sound roster, but this one we have been working on for a little while! It is our great honour to announce that we have taken on the funkiest forte from Canada: Stephen Lewis & his Big Band of Fun!
The band has toured across the globe and taken their BIG FUN to world renowned festivals like Glastonbury (UK), Burning Man (NV), Mountain Jam (on The 1969 Woodstock Music Festival site), The Boomtown Fair (UK), The Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival (CAN), and dozens of others across Canada, America, and Europe.
In 2020/21 the band made the most of their time away from physical touring with extremely successful live streamed performances. These virtual shows and performance videos exceeded a collective 350,000 + views and included a special Mountain Jam live stream which billed the band directly alongside Warren Haynes, Grace Potter, and Michael Franti. Their efforts during the pandemic also lead to an East Coast Music Association Award Nomination for Artist Innovator of the Year in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Best described as energetic funk music on steroids, their performance is guaranteed to include BIG jams, BIG smiles, and BIG excitement! Get ready to sing, sweat, and dance with Stephen Lewis & The Big Band of Fun!
