Due to popular demand Dumpstaphunk are coming back to Bluesfest in 2018. The group stand out among New Orleans’ best as one of the funkiest bands to ever come out from the Crescent City. In Big Easy tradition, the former band members of Keith Richards band, The X-Pensive Winos, Ivan and Ian Neville send the groove into overdrive with Hammond B3 keys and funky guitar riffs, all backed up by duelling baselines from Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III, the dirtiest rhythm section on the planet.
This original late night band recently welcomed their newest member, Alvin Ford Jr. to the quintet, a New Orleans born and raised powerhouse drummer. They will be released a live album in 2016 featuring special guests Mike Gordon, John Popper, Art "Poppa Funk" Neville, John Oates, Lukas Nelson, Angelo Moore, Nicki Bluhm, Natalie Cressman, Brandon "TAZ" Niederauer, Big Chief, Mojo Hanna, Jon Cleary and The SteelTown Horns. Bluesfest fans will get their funk on, watching Dumpstaphunk toss around lead vocal and four-part harmonies ignited with a deep, gritty groove, that dares listeners not to move.
