Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Dumpstaphunk/Wanyama

When: Fri., April 10, 9 p.m. 2015

Ivan Neville’s funk/jam behemoth from New Orleans is not to be messed with. An absolute staple on the national scene for years now, Dumpstaphunk brings southern heat tinged with upper-register wah-wah solos. The band’s most recent outing, 2013’s Dirty Word shows off their stage-strutting moves -- horns aplenty, awash in manic percussion and wild guitar riffs. The album also features a great variety of guests -- Flea, Ani DiFranco, members of the Grooveline Horns and more. “We always keep the spontaneity going, that’s something I love about this band,” Neville told Soundfuse Magazine in 2013. “We can funk it out with the best of them, but we also like to showcase how all sorts of music can come together and push the boundaries of what funk music is.” (Eric Sandy)
