Dumpstaphunk Brings It Home
On Sunday night Ivan Neville and Dumpstaphunk closed out a busy JazzFest weekend with a guest-heavy performance at New Orleans’ Tipitina’s. As expected, a number of musicians in town for other gigs stopped by for a final jam at various points throughout the night, including George Porter, Jr., June Yamaguchi, Matt Grondin, Cyril Neville, Eric Krasno, Adam Deitch, E.D. Coomes, Nigel Hall, Terrace Blanchard and Efrem Townes. Warren Haynes also popped in for a few songs, including a cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Fortunate Son’ after playing with PBS at the Howlin’ Wolf earlier in the evening. Haynes has played the popular cover with Dumpstaphunk on occasion, most recently at New York’s Sullivan Hall this winter.
