Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown with April B & The Cool, Henry + The invisibles
The idea for The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown came to John Heintz
during a Late Night Super Jam at a music festival in 2007. He
was on tour with The Lee Boys, a funk, gospel and soul group
from Florida, when inspiration struck. “On the last night of the
festival, there was a jam session,” he recalls. “Members of
Galactic, Papa Grows Funk, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and
other acts started improvising and the energy from the crowd, and the interactions between the players, created a live, unrehearsed vibe that carried the music to unexpected places.
