A staple of the Denver music scene and beyond, Live For Live Music‘s The Funk Sessions series has been bringing rotating lineups of musicians together for all-star dance parties for several years. In addition to spreading to New Orleans for a special Funk Session during Jazz Fest, the series has cemented its place as a go-to Dick’s late-night since 2019 with an offshoot dubbed The Phunk Sessions.

The crew for the 2022 edition of The Phunk Sessions will feature a mix of funk luminaries and contemporary stars including George Porter Jr. (bass/vocals, The Meters), Ivan Neville (keys/vocals, Dumpstaphunk), Isaiah Sharkey (guitar/vocals, John Mayer/D’Angelo), Adam Smirnoff (guitar, Lettuce), Adam Deitch (drums, Lettuce), Eric “Benny” Bloom (trumpet, Lettuce), and Drew Sayers (saxophone, The Motet).

Even beyond the billed lineups, these shows have been known to attract unannounced talent and surprise sit-ins. Back in 2019 at the inaugural running of The Phunk Sessions, bassist Mike Gordon made his way to Cervantes’ after finishing up with Phish at Dick’s and wound up sitting in with the band on a rendition of Little Feat‘s “Spanish Moon”. Watch a full, pro-shot video of The Phunk Sessions 2019 featuring special guest Mike Gordon below.
