Dumpstaphunk
Dumpstaphunk
Dumpstaphunk stands out among New Orleans' best as one of the funkiest bands to ever arise from the Crescent City. Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and descended from Neville family bloodlines, these soldiers of funk ignite a deep, gritty groove that dares listeners not to move. Their performances combine ingenious musicianship and complex funk and jazz arrangements with soulful melodies that are simple enough for anyone to enjoy. In Big Easy tradition, dueling baselines from Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III set off one of the dirtiest rhythm sections on the planet, while Ivan Neville lights up the Hammond B3 keys and cousin Ian Neville's funky guitar riffs send the groove into overdrive. The band recently welcomed their newest member, Alvin Ford Jr. to the quintet, a New Orleans born and raised powerhouse drummer. Dumpstaphunk tosses around lead vocals and four-part harmonies the way Sly & the Family Stone did, but with three studio albums under their belt, Dumpstaphunk stands on the merit of their own material. Songs like "Dancin' To The Truth" off their latest record, Dirty Word (Red Hot Records), offer an escape into the funky sublime, sharing the true spirit of New Orleans with every note.

The Peterson Brothers
The Peterson Brothers
"The Peterson Brothers are particularly adept at a smooth, funky, groove-laden type of blues that requires a mastery of both musical timing and onstage rapport. The fact that they're succeeding on all fronts as teenagers makes it that much more impressive." Elmore Magazine 2014

The Peterson Brothers were born and raised deep in the "Lost Pines" of Bastrop, Texas. Alex, 15, on bass and violin and vocals; and Glenn Jr., 18 on guitar and lead vocals are two brothers, one sound. Their music combines the classic blues sounds of legends with their own unique blend of soul-infused inspiration.

In just a few short years they have had the opportunity to open for B.B. King and the Willie Nelson, Los Lonely Boys. Lisa Marie Presley, and many more. They have also played with Buddy Guy, Michael Burks, Pinetop Perkins. The Peterson Brothers have also gained the attention of the legendary Bootsy Collins who has become one of their mentors.

The band has just completed their debut album "The Peterson Brothers " with Michael Freeman, who produced the Grammy Award Winning "Joined at the Hip" by Pinetop Perkins and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith.

Although much of their time is spent honing in on their musical gifts, they put precedence on volunteering and ensuring that their academics are a top priority. The Peterson Brothers are on a mission to help "Keep the Blues Alive".
