Dumpstaphunk has just announced support and a bevy of special guests for their 3rd annual Phunksgiving Eve show in New York City on Wednesday, November 23rd at American Beauty (purchase tickets here). This is going to be one hell of a way to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.
Joining Ivan Neville and his cast of NOLA-based funk brethren will be Soulive/Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno, former Dumpsta member and current Nth Power drummer Nikki Glaspie, 13-year-old guitar prodigy Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, and the Steel Town Horns. Grammy Award-winning trumpet player/producer Maurice “Mobetta” Brown will be bringing along his band SOUL’D U OUT to open up the celebration proper.
With this lineup, it’s safe to say that this will be the best Phunksgiving Eve event yet. American Beauty is a more intimate venue, so don’t snooze on getting tickets for this special performance.
