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.

Organically Good Trio feat. Paul W (of Slightly Stoopid)
Organically Good Trio is a Hammond organ driven roots instrumental group out of Boston. Founded by Slightly Stoopid keyboard player Paul Wolstencroft, the band has a sound reminiscent of the great organ trio albums of the late 60's. The music takes elements of jazz, and incorporates a blues, R&B and church. There's a lot of feeling involved, and a lot of Ray Charles influence, and even some hints of reggae. At times they sound like Grant Green, the Meters or even Jimmy McGriff, but also can resemble newer bands such as the Mighty Imperials and the New Mastersounds. There's a reason they use a Hammond organ in a church; its because it's a very soulful instrument. It's like an entire orchestra at your fingertips. Often imitated never duplicated, the Hammond organ is the organ sound everyone is after.
