VIDEOS: Robert Walter’s 20th Congress at the 2013 Bear Creek Music & Art Festival

Robert Walter's 20th Congress

Robert Walter brought the revamped lineup of his 20th Congress band to Bear Creek last year. Watching the dynamic collaboration unfold between Walter and New Orleans-bred drum phenom Simon Lott is nothing short of joyful; as you can see in the clips below they are loving playing together. Add to that the veteran Daptones saxophonist Cochemea Gastelum and scene newcomer Josh Perdue on guitar on bass and the funk flow gets mighty tight!

For their Friday late night set at the inside Technaflora Music Hall stage, Walter and crew got super loose with an encore of 1970’s electric-era Miles Davis covers that topped off the long day of music with a cherry on top. Below that are a few other videos from the last night set with Eddie Roberts of The New Mastersounds joining on guitar. Below that is a few songs from the 20th Congress’ mid-day set the next afternoon. Enjoy!

Wild Fiya Super Jam brings black rock to the New Orleans Jazz Fest late night scene

WildFiya

Fiyawerx Productions put on an array of impressive “super jams” during the 10 days and nights of debauchery known as the New Orleans Jazz Festival. One of them was a dark amalgam of black rock heroes led by a musician who has been a staple of the Jazz Fest late night scene for no less than 10 years: Eric McFadden.

The group also included funk rock legends Bernie Worrell and Blackbyrd McKnight of Parliament Funkadelic, Doug Wimbish and Corey Glover of Living Colour, and Norwood Fisher of Fishbone, along with Stephen Perkins of Janes Addiction on drums and Mike Dillon on vibes and percussion.
