Nikki Glaspie guest sets at Bear Creek Music Festival 2013: Chali 2na, Jennifer Hartswick Band, The Nth Power and more!

Chali 2na House of Vibe Nikki Glaspie

It seemed like Nikki Glaspie was playing drums with everyone at Bear Creek in 2013. She played no less than 8 full sets, including 4 full sets on Sunday. Here she is with Chali 2na’s House of Vibe Band, 2 sets with the Jennifer Hartswick Band and a late night set with The Nth Power.

She also played with Dumpstaphunk, The Bear Creek Allstars (Dumpstajam) and subbed for Adam Deitch in Lettuce. Those 3 sets can be founds here. She also held it down with Roosevelt Collier & Nigel Hall’s Gospel Surprise, but I’m holding on to those videos until I find an audio source (I accidentally left my mic turned off so I have no sound for that set). Enjoy the last of my Bear Creek 2013 videos:

Fiya Fest 2014 Highlights – New Orleans, LA

Fiya Fest 2014

Fiyawerx Productions did it again for a 2nd year in a row, putting on a lineup of complete fiya, with all the proceeds benefiting The Roots of Music. Combining the best performers in New Orleans with other musical icons and up and coming acts in the contemporary funk scene, Fiyawerx Productions is pushing the storied history of New Orleans music forward while investing heavily in the cultural heritage of the city.

If you are in New Orleans for the Jazz & Heritage Festival, Fiya Fest is an event that is not to be missed. I’ve been very fortunate to be asked to helped document these once in a lifetime musical moments and below I’ve shared video clips from most of the acts that performed this year. I believe the music is for everyone and should be enjoyed and spread far and wide. I think the Fiyawerx krewe would likely agree with me, so I’ve shared quite a lot of footage in hopes that those that could not attend can enjoy these “once only” live collaborations.
