Dumpstaphunk
A decade evolved from their debut at 2003's New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Dumpstaphunk offers fans an unforgettable live experience steeped in the Big Easy tradition of a good time. The quintet features Ivan Neville on vocals, B3 and Clav, the double bass attack and soulful voices of Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III, Ian Neville on guitar, and the monster addition of Nikki Glaspie on drums and vocals.

From annual performances at New Orleans' Jazz Fest -- "The colossal low end and filthy grooves they threw down from the Gentilly Stage must have set a Jazz Fest record for baddest bass jams ever." (Bass Player Magazine, 2012) -- to music rooms and festivals across the nation (Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, All Good, High Sierra and beyond), Dumpstaphunk continues to spread an unmistakably New Orleans groove with hard-hitting performances that dare listeners not to move.
“We always keep the spontaneity going, that’s something I love about this band," says Ivan. “We can funk it out with the best of them, but we also like to showcase how all sorts of music can come together and push the boundaries of what funk music is."

Dumpstaphunk's summer 2013 release, Dirty Word, re-imagines their genre, holding true to the opinionated, vintage funk of Sly & the Family Stone and Parliament Funkadelic, but with a modern edge that forays into gospel, blues, second-line, R&B and straight-up rock n’ roll. True to New Orleans tradition, Dumpsta’s friends and family Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, Rebirth Brass Band, Art Neville, Ani DiFranco, Skerik, the Groovelive horns and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers kick the Dirty Word sessions up a notch.

"The whole record speaks to the righteousness of music. We’re not necessarily telling a specific story, but expressing how music makes things right for everyone in their own way. Our fans can feel that vibe and let it take them wherever they need to.”

“We just hope to spread the good word through funk," added Glaspie. "If we can create an escape, give people a reason to get down and forget their problems, then we're doing what we set out to do."
Ancient Sun
Ancient Sun
Ancient Sun was formed in late 2011 in Orlando, FL. Their first full album, which was Self-titled, was released in May 2012 and their newest EP "Number One Rule" was released May 2013. Described best as Electric Funk Rock they are powered by Rick Krasowski (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Colin Fei (Vocals/Keys/Trumpet), Tom Shea (Saxophone), Greg Jungbluth (Bass), and Jason Zane (Drums); their energetic and charismatic presence on and off stage will have you ready to dance and leave you wanting more. Since their formation they have been pushing hard; playing all over Florida, up to Tennessee, and back. They have opened for The Bright Light Social Hour, JC Brooks and The Uptown Sound, Afroman, Legendary JC’s, and Beeb's and Her Money Makers just to name a few. They’ve also been featured at many well known Florida festivals including Florida Music Festival, Orange Blossom Jamboree, and B.e Easy Music & Art's Festival. Ancient Sun never disappoints and promises to leave you eagerly waiting for their next show.
