Dumpstaphunk - Dancin' to the Truth

Feels Like: The Meters, Vulfpeck, Trombone Shorty

Happy Fat Tuesday! Just spent a weekend knee-deep in great funk and oysters in the heart of the French Quarter. In the current musical landscape, N'awlins funk is more often than not overlooked. Outside of bands like Dumpstaphunk, Trombone Shorty, and Rebirth Brass Band, New Orleans music has to be experienced in the city itself. Nothing is more exciting than stumbling into a venue to discover a band seasoned to perfection, acclimated to the dim lighting and sweaty environs of a New Orleans watering hole.
