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”!
