Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk

Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk is a group of musicologists that transcend age and styles in a free-flowing approach to their art. Dumpstaphunk weaves a vocal and musical tapestry from key members of Dave Matthews & Friends, Trey Anastasio, Jewel and the Neville musical families. The band’s music incorporates drops of Sly and the Family Stone and Meter-esque jams as well as other diverse influences into a spicy musical gumbo. Ivan Neville began absorbing the musical attitude of the Neville family from birth. Ivan’s music honors and extends the Neville’s musical heritage, adding a distinctive new grit that radiates from his New Orleans roots. Dumpstaphunk’s brand of New Orleans deep fried funk has them heralded as the most hypnotic and riveting band to come out of New Orleans in many decades. Dumpstaphunk performed on the main stage at the New Orleans Jazz Fest in 2005 and have headlined New Orleans venues such as Tipitinas, and The Howlin’ Wolf. The band won the 2005 Big Easy Award as New Orleans ‘ “Best Funk Group.” “Ivan Neville is the funkiest collection of human gumbo ever assembled on the planet.” —Bonnie Raitt
