Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk
Waterfront Blues Festival
July 6, 2014
Another year of WBF recordings. Recorded from KBOO FM in Portland, OR. A great lineup again this year. I was looking forward to Greg Allman's set, but he had to pull out due to sickness. Oh well, I wouldn't have been able to share him here anyway. Seems to be much more DJ talking this year, interrupting some music. I just left it in rather than trying to edit each show. Feel free to make any changes you wish for personal use.
I may need help with some of the set list's as I don't know all the bands.

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, to music rooms and majorfestivals like Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and Japan's world-famous Fuji Rock Festival, 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 showcasehow 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. The record features the studio debut of female powerhouse Glaspie on drums and vocals, along with appearances from their friends and family Art Neville, Ani DiFranco, Troy �Trombone Shorty� Andrews, Rebirth Brass Band, Skerik, the Groovelive horns and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on select tracks.
�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.�
