VIDEO: Fiyawerx Prod. presents: Fiya Powa! 5/1/14 New Orleans, LA @ One Eyed Jack’s

Fiya Powa

Nothing like a Fiywerx Productions sponsored late night super jam! This was the 2nd annual Fiya Powa! and featured Stanton Moore on drums, Ivan Neville on keys and vocals, Tony Hall on bass and vocals, Roosevelt Collier on pedal steel guitar, Eddie Roberts on guitar, Fred Wesley on trombone, Sam Kininger on saxophone, and Razhel the Godfather of Noise with the beatboxing. As I usually do, I caught some on video for those that couldn’t make it that late….

Funk It’s Bear Creek Music Fest 2013 Videos

Here it is. A massive slap of funk upside your head. This highlight video will give you a glimpse into this “funky festival in the fall”. Featuring clips from 39 different performances over 3 days and 4 nights, this 27 minute collage represents the work of one man armed with 3 video cameras and 1 mic. With any event bringing together this many talented musicians and acts you can never experience all of it, but I’ll be damned if I didn’t try.
