VIDEOS: A Royal Family Affair at Bear Creek 2012 feat. Soulive, Lettuce, Dumpstaphunk, Nigel Hall & Alecia Chakour, etc.

Eric Krasno & Chapter 2

On Saturday, November 10, 2012, the Royal Family Records artists took over the Purple Hat Stage at Bear Creek Music & Art Festival with sets by Nigel Hall & Alecia Chakour, Alan Evans Trio, Eric Krasno’s Chapter 2, Soulive, Lettuce and finally the Royal Family Dumpstajam.

Funk It was in attendance and is now able to bring a little bit of this action to the comfort of your computer/TV screen… Oh, and pay special attention to the massive George Porter Jr sit-in with Dumpstaphunk on the last video, which includes a 12 minute version of Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s “Down By The River”!

Bear Creek 2011 Secret Tree House After Party Jam Session with “Walter Roberts & Deitch”

On the last day of the Bear Creek Music Festival, I was fortunate to get wind of the secret after party jam session that was supposedly for staff only. I was told it would be in the tree house behind the Purple Hat stage. Luckily I was able to borrow a 4 gig memory card from a friend (thanks Bob!) which enabled me to record about an hour of the jam session before I was flat-out out of memory.

When I arrived around 11:30pm, I saw WRD (Robert Walter, Eddie Roberts and Adam Deitch) set up and ready to play. I had previously thought it strange that this new group didn’t get a Bear Creek set, considering all three players were at the festival. So this was quite a treat to close out the weekend with. I didn’t record the first tune, but I did get the next six, approximately 54 minutes, which you can watch in excellent HD quality right here….

For me, the highlights are Topaz‘s saxophone blowing on the first video, Eric Krasno‘s jazz guitar chops on the second video, Louis Cato‘s bass solo at the end of the fifth video, and Ivan Neville jumping on drums to join Jamie McLean for a cover of Delbert McClinton‘s “Standing On Shaky Ground” on the sixth and last video. For those that weren’t able to attend or who didn’t find out about the jam session, sit back and enjoy it here in Funk It vision…
