There’s only one way to get phunky, and it’s not nice or pretty. That’s funk with a p-h because Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk is coming to town and they warn, “be ready for some of the nastiest, most serial crushin funk to ever come out of New Orleans and beyond.”
What does nasty, serial crushin funk sound like? Turn up the volume:
Ivan hails from funk royalty; Aaron Neville, The Neville Brothers and The Meters are Dumpstaphunk has been around since 2003 and received instant fame since their first performance. The New York Times called Dumpstaphunk “the best funk band from New Orleans right now,” and they don’t just say these things. They’ve played New Orleans Jazz Fest, Voodoo Fest, Bonnaroo, High Sierra Music Festival and have collaborated and performed with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Dave Mathews, Bonnie Raitt and Trey Anastasio. Do whatever you need to prepare your body for the outrageous impending funk to ensue. I’ll need a good stretch, bubble bath and massage after this one.
In only a few short weeks, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk will bring all that stanky, dirty, funky stuff to the revamped Venue 222 MAY 17th. Tickets go on sale at 10am Friday, April 29 on the Venue 222 website.
