IVAN NEVILLE'S DUMPSTAPHUNK

9 p.m., Revolution. $10 adv./$12 d.o.s.

It's no secret that New Orleans breeds top-shelf musicians and a sound incomparable to any genre. So if swamp-boogie voodoo funk is what you're after, look no further than Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, a five-piece outfit from the Big Easy fronted by the son of legendary Aaron Neville. This is one tough blend of balls-out R&B, uncut, trance-inducing bayou funk. Neville and his cohorts' resumes are astounding and so are the jams they'll kick out at Revolution April 16. Ivan played keyboards on the Rolling Stones' “Dirty Work” and “Voodoo Lounge” albums and has performed with the Stones, Keith Richards and the Expensive Winos, Bonnie Raitt and John Mayer. Guitarist Nick Daniels has played with Mardi Gras Indians, Etta James and Boz Scaggs. Drummer Raymond Weber has laid the rhythmic groundwork for high-profile acts such as Trey Anastasio and Joe Sample and guitarist Ian Neville's credentials include the Funky Meters, Galactic and North Mississippi Allstars. Bassist Tony Hall's jamming cohorts include Anastasio, Dave Matthews and Friends, Harry Connick Jr. and Emmylou Harris. Dumpstaphunk brought down the house last time they were in Little Rock so arrive early and plan to break a heavy sweat. PP.

  • Holiday blend

    take equal parts arena rock and classical, fuse with Christmas carols and serve rock opera style. Then sprinkle with violins, 14 vocalists, two narrators, state-of-the-art pyro and lasers and you've about got the essence of Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

    When President-elect Trump announced he would, in a few days, force Congress to enact comprehensive health insurance for everyone, poor or rich, that would provide better and cheaper care than they've ever gotten, you had to wonder whether this guy is a miracle worker or a fool.
