In the tradition of iconic, fun-loving American funk bands like The Meters and Parliament Funkadelic, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk pivots away from the rich New Orleans jazz and blues tradition to instead create a sweaty, bass-quaking sound. For the record Dirty Word, the band was joined by such pop and funk luminaries as Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, The Rebirth Brass Band, Art Neville, Ani DiFranco, Skerik, and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Come early and groove to Colorado-based opener Euphorquestra. Closer to home: The band opens for the Greyboy Allstars on Friday, April 12 at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom. Fri 9 pm.
