Dumpstaphunk

Dumpstaphunk 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 baselines 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” off their latest record, Dirty Word (Red Hot Records), offer an escape into the funky sublime, sharing the true spirit of New Orleans with every note.

Flowtribe

Straight out of New Orleans and into your earholes, Flow Tribe brings the funk/rock with the delicacy of a sledgehammer. Flow Tribe's diversity of sound is undeniable, with dueling guitars and a smoking hot rhythm section accompanied by washboard and trumpet.The energy they put out could light a city block. These six seasoned performers have shared the stage with Galactic, Trombone Shorty, Juvenile, and John Fogerty just to name a few. Flow Tribe tours nationally and always brings the travelling street parade with them. No wonder Relix magazine called Flow Tribe "bizarrely irresistable". The kilowatts of pure fun emanating from the stage will make anyone a believer. Flow Tribe has performed at: New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Wakarusa, Houston International Festival, The Kennedy Center, Voodoo Music Experience, and Bear Creek Music Festival just to name a few.

Reed Mathis

The mastermind bassist behind Electric Beethoven brings his exciting new project to the Charleston Pour House. Anything Reed Mathis is involved with is sure to push sonic boundaries, fill the spirit with euphoria and remind audiences of the shear power contained in live music. In the past he has blazed trails in collaboration with Roosevelt Collier, Bill Kreutzmann, Steve Kimock, Tea Leaf Green and Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. He will be joined by drummer Scott Rager of Tea Leaf Green and guitarist Clay Welch of Electric Beethoven. The trio promises to siphon some of your favorite songs by the likes of the Grateful Dead, BobDylan, Paul Simon and more through a kaleidoscope of radically fresh imagination. On top of that, we can assure you that whatever this band touches will be feverishly funky, rich in complex, rhythmic, jazz-infused sensibilities and likely to venture into the realms of jam-rock in ways you've never conceived.
