Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival’s 2011 DumpstaJam ft. Dumpstaphunk & Friends

A tradition since the very first Bear Creek Music & Art Festival in 2007 is the Saturday night DumpstaJam featuring Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk and all of their friends. In fact, it was hearing recordings of the DumpstaJam each year that convinced me that I HAD to make it down to Live Oak, Florida to experience the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park for myself. (and it sort of prompted me to start this blog)

2011 was my first time to Bear Creek and I was able to capture a thick slice of funk, the likes of which can only truly be experienced late night in New Orleans or late night in these Florida woods…

PART ONE:
(1) Fight The Power [Isley Brothers cover] (w/ Freekbass & Nigel Hall) >
(2) Bass Duel (Freekbass vs. Louis Cato) >
(3) What Is Hip? [Tower of Power cover] (w/ Freekbass, Louis Cato, Nigel Hall, Eric Krasno & horns)
(4) Dr. Funkenstein [Parliament cover] (w/ Jonathan Lloyd, Rashawn Ross, Khris Royal, Ryan Zoidis, Louis Cato on trombone, ??? on sousaphone, & Nigel Hall)

PART TWO:
(1) Miss You [Rolling Stones cover] (w/ Matt Grondin on first guitar solo, Joey Porter, Billy Iuso on second guitar solo, Nigel Hall on just a little organ)
(2) Livin’ In A World Gone Mad (w/ Andrew Block & Skerik)
(3) Higher [Sly & The Family Stone cover] (w/ Eric Krasno, Zach Deputy, Corey Glover, Derrick Freeman, Louis Cato, Nigel Hall, & horns)

FYI, Dumpstaphunk is on the Live Music Archive and you can stream and/or download many live recordings: http://www.archive.org/details/Dumpstaphunk

Orgone’s never-ending tour lights up The Bishop Bar in Bloomington, IN, May 30, 2012

Orgone lit the stage on fire Wednesday, May 30th at the Bishop Bar in Bloomington, IN. Having made a stop in the city during their fall 2011 tour, the crowd was filled with many dedicated Orgone fans as well as newly converted funk fanatics. A full set of old hits and new jams left the crowd in a sweaty, melted, synergistic state of funk.

With a new album coming out in a few months, the group’s energy and groove are as tight as ever. This hard touring band will be covering the country this summer with a jam-packed set of dates. Check their schedule and hit up a show for a real taste of Cali fever.

Check out the videos below, and the full SBD audio download here.
