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…

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.

Also, if you’re wondering, Fanny Franklin, Orgone’s previous singer, has released an album of her own and I highly recommend it: http://soundcloud.com/fannyfranklin.
