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.

A-Town GetDown
A-Town GetDown
In a town celebrated for its rock and roll, country and alternative roots, the musical collective known as 'A-Town GetDown' stands out from the crowd in the 'Live Music Capital of the World' by offering a unique mix of original rock, R&B, sultry soul and a modern take on the classic funk sound. The band was formed in 2014 by a talented group of seasoned performers and friends with the simple goal of creating music that makes people want to dance. A-Town GetDown has created a loyal following by hosting carefully crafted events that include other great local artists and by playing dynamic set lists filled with fun music. ATGD has proven Austin isn't just weird, it's pretty funky too.
