Dumpstaphunk [website | Amazon.com] stands out among New Orleans' best as one of the funkiest bands to ever arise from the Crescent City. Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and descended from Neville family bloodlines, these soldiers of funk ignite a deep, gritty groove that dares listeners not to move. Their performances combine ingenious musicianship and complex funk and jazz arrangements with soulful melodies that are simple enough for anyone to enjoy. In Big Easy tradition, dueling basslines from Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III set off one of the dirtiest rhythm sections on the planet, while Ivan Neville lights up the Hammond B3 keys and cousin Ian Neville's funky guitar riffs send the groove into overdrive. The band recently welcomed their newest member, Alvin Ford Jr. to the quintet, a New Orleans born and raised powerhouse drummer. Dumpstaphunk tosses around lead vocals and four-part harmonies the way Sly & the Family Stone did, but with three studio albums under their belt, Dumpstaphunk stands on the merit of their own material. Songs like "Dancin' To The Truth"offer an escape into the funky sublime, sharing the true spirit of New Orleans with every note.

The Sticky is a live funk collective made up of creatives from Santa Fe who are at the top of their craft. The Sticky's mission is to use the essential tools of layered vocal harmonies, pocket explorations, and Purple Love to assist all in ascending from their lower levels. 40 years of powerful funk & soul anthems are delivered with sickening diva realness and rhythmic precision. "They cover all the bases any music fan could want from incredibly tight instrumentation, gorgeous vocal melodies, outstanding musicianship and, almost most importantly, great fun." (Santa Fe Reporter)
