Additional Information

Not uncommon to the festival and live touring circuit, Dumpstaphunk has unleashed notable performances at some of the nation's largest music extravaganzas including Bonnaroo, VoodooFest, 10,000 Lakes, New Orleans Jazzfest 2005-2011, Bear Creek, Wanee, High Sierra, All Good, JamCruise 2011, Gathering of the Vibes, Ottawa Blues Festival, Dave Matthews Band Caravan and Monterey Jazz Festival. They have recently supported everyone from Widespread Panic and Slightly Stoopid to Galactic and String Cheese Incident, not to mention sit-ins with Derek Trucks, Mike Gordon from Phish and Warren Haynes, which only begin to scratch the surface. 

Moving forward in 2011, the band continues to develop its sound and further push the envelope within a progressive funk sound that has arguably become the most defining in the modern genre from New Orleans. The band continues to receive accolades and awards such as "New Orleans Best Funk Band" by Offbeat Magazine and Gambit Weekly in 2007 and 2009. They also took home the trophy for Best Funk Award at the 2010 Big Easy Awards. For more information, visithttp://www.dumpstaphunk.com/ 


TALKIN’ ABOUT THE PHUNK 

“Dumpstaphunk’s groove is a unique monster. It's not the minimalist funk of the Meters and it’s not the relentless funk of James Brown, although it has that rhythmic drive. It's not the psychedelic, over-the-top circus of Parliament-Funkadelic, but it often has that political slant. It's not the party funk of the Ohio Players, but it shares the high vocals that take the pressure off the bottom. Dumpstaphunk is a whole other school of funk. If you're under 35, you think you've seen funk, but you haven't. You missed the original Meters, James Brown when he wasn't a parody, Parliament-Funkadelic’s landing of the “Mothership”, Sly and the Family Stone before he went M.I.A and Booker T. and the M.G.s before the demise of Stax. Dumpstaphunk is as good as all that, and they're in their prime now.” - Gambit Weekly

"Dumpstaphunk is the best funk band from New Orleans right now.” - The New York Times

"Dumpstaphunk is ready to usher in a new age of funk to the masses." - Jambase.com

"Ivan's so good...I play with him.” - Keith Richards
