Born from a Jazzfest Jam session, RumpelSTEELskin combines rock and funk with The Revivalists Ed Williams’ amazingly unique vocal-influenced steel guitar. The group will be making an appearance at Howlin’ Wolf during the previously announced Fu*k 2016: A Funky Tribute To Musicians We Lost on Sunday, April 30th, which features members of Turkuaz, Snarky Puppy, The Motet, KDTU, Eric Krasno Band, Allen Stone, and more (get ticket here). Molded by guitarists and soul singers of the 60’s and 70’s, Ed leads a rotating musical force that brings the New Orleans spirit to gospel, rock, and funk pedal steel guitar. Members include George Gekas (The Revivalists) on bass, Michael Girardot (The Revivalists) on keys, and David Shirley (Cardinal Sons) on drums.
Initially, Turkuaz’s Michelangelo Carubba, Craig Brodhead, and Shira Elias were named along with The Motet’s Joey Porter, Garrett Sayers, and Lyle Divinsky to explore the music of fallen artists such as Prince, David Bowie, George Michael, Maurice White, Bernie Worrell, Phife Dawg, Leonard Cohen, and many more. As the weeks have passed, Khris Royal of Rebelution, Maurice “Mobetta” Brown of SOUL’D OUT, D. J. Williams of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Danny Mayer of the Eric Krasno Band, Steveland Swatkins from Allen Stone, fellow Turkuaz vocalist Sammi Garett, and Snarky Puppy percussionist Nate Werth have all come on board to fill out the complete lineup.
As support to the Fu*k 2016 Tribute, RumpleSTEELskin will open up the evening. The London Souls have also been tapped to play the late-late show over in The Den after the show. It’s going to be a party, that’s for sure.
