HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - The 11th annual "Three Caves Concert Series" presented by Redstone Federal Credit Union is back for 2016 with three exciting events.

The first is Friday, June 10 and features Big Sam's Funky Nation.  This event is held at Three Caves, located just north of downtown Huntsville, and benefits the Land Trust of North Alabama. Your ticket helps save natural lands, habitat, and water resources.

The concert features high-energy music that combines funk, rock & roll, hip-hop, and jazz into the same pot, mixing everything together with the brassy influence and heavy grooves of New Orleans.

From national performances at Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits to hometown appearances Voodoo Fest and Jazz Fest, Big Sam's Funky Nation have built their reputation onstage. You don't just watch the funky show, you become a part of it.

The band's live performances are legendary, filled with blasts of brass, bursts of electric guitar, and the charisma of Big Sam, a front man who sings, plays, dances, and involves the audience in everything he does.

Things to remember:
*NO outside food or drink, please.
*Food trucks will be available for your dining pleasure.
*Air from inside the quarry is 65 degrees so the venue is "naturally" air-conditioned. Light jacket and closed-toe shoes (due to gravel) recommended.
*If the Concert must be cancelled due to inclement weather, please consider the cost of your ticket to be a tax-deductible donation to the Land Trust of North Alabama.

Three Caves is located at 847 Adams St SE, Huntsville, AL 35801.
