Dumpstaphunk’s Phunksgiving @ Brooklyn Bowl
November 21 @ 8:00 pm$20
For the past three years, New Orleans stalwarts Dumpstaphunk have traveled from The Big Easy to The Big Apple on the night before Thanksgiving to help New Yorker’s ring in the holiday season with a night of bass-heavy funk tunes, fun tribute sets, and amazing special guests. In 2014, Ivan Neville, Tony Hall and company hit B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in Times Square with special guests Eric Krasno and Brandon “Taz” Niederauer. In 2015, they brought Phunksgiving to Port Chester’s beloved venue, The Capitol Theatre, and they invited Cyril Neville, Fishbone, and Dust Rays featuring Capt’n Kirk from The Roots to the party. Last year, the band moved to the friendly confines of American Beauty and delivered a set of 1970s funk classics, with Kraz and Taz both showing up for their second Phunksgiving, while former Dumpstaphunk drummer and The Nth Power founder Nikki Glaspie also lent her talents to the stage for a few tunes.
This year, the holiday tradition will continue in Brooklyn. On Tuesday, November 21st, Dumpstaphunk will bring Phunksgiving to Brooklyn Bowl for a funk throwdown with special guests Southern Avenue, the high-energy upstarts currently taking the live music scene by storm. If previous years of Phunksgiving are any indication, the band certainly has a few tricks up their sleeves as well. After all, you never know who might show up at Phunksgiving!
