Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk

Opening Cowboy Mouth's Rock N' Roll Mardi Gras Tour. 8 p.m. Wednesday, February 7, $15-$25. House of Blues, 308 Euclid Ave., 216-523-2583.


Dumpstaphunk features Ivan Neville of the legendary Neville family, and, yes, it's all-the-way funky. The roaming band of musicologists also features a crack squad of players who've logged time with Trey Anastasio, Jewel, and the Dave Matthews Band, where they learned to jam out a song. Here, they take the free-flow approach and stir tunes into a hot musical gumbo that could only come from New Orleans.
