New Orleans’ own Dumpstaphunk are gearing up for a big few weeks in their hometown during Jazz Fest. Not only will Dumpstaphunk perform at the Fairgrounds during the festival itself, but the band has announced three additional appearances and a preview party spotlighting their new album – Dirty Word.
The band gets things started on April 26th with a Parliment Funkadelic cover set at Howlin’ Wolf. Then, on the 27th, they’ll not only play at the Fairgrounds’ Gentilly Stage, but that night they’ll perform at The Maison with special guest Page McConnell of Phish. On May 1st, Ivan Neville and Dumpstaphunk will host a Dirty Word preview party at the Louisiana Music Factory. Starting at 6PM that evening, the band will sell the first copies of their new album and treat fans to an intimate performance.
Finally, on May 5th, Dumpstaphunk will celebrate their 10th Anniversary at Tipitina’s Uptown along with the guest horn section of Jennifer Hartswick, Natalie Cressman and Skerik.
