Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk
Waterfront Blues Festival
July 2, 2006
Recorded from KBOO FM, which is a local all volunteer community radio station. The station doesn't have a lot of power to broadcast and I feel lucky to be in the area which it reaches. Consequently there are some drops, reception and other various problems like cutting in for interviews and such. Mostly all are a good listen. I have tried to "cleanup" some of the drops in sound and cuts. There is nothing I can do to the reception problems. Most only last a few seconds.
"Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk is the funkiest collection of human gumbo ever assembled on the planet." - Bonnie Raitt
There’s one royal musical family in New Orleans, and the name is Neville. Ivan Neville, son of legendary singer Aaron Neville, began absorbing the Crescent City musical mien of his family since the day he was born. Ivan, at the feet of his father and uncle Art, learned to play keyboards, guitar, bass and drums and in his teens started playing with the family band, the Neville Brothers.
The young Neville moved to Los Angeles where he became a pivotal member and recording partner with Bonnie Raitt, Rufus, Robbie Robertson, Keith Richards and the Xpensive Winos, and the Spin Doctors. He launched his solo career with the acclaimed "If My Ancestors Could See Me Now," and comes backed by his own band of New Orleans funk veterans, Dumpstaphunk, which includes the young, and formidable, Ian Neville on guitar.
