Saturday To-Do: Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk

Posted By on Fri, Feb 6, 2009 at 3:08 PM

8:30 p.m., Revolution. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

Little Rock continues to deliver the funkiest, swampiest Cajun-spiced voodoo grooves Louisiana has to offer, and this week's highlight stems from the royal Neville family, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk. Keyboardist Ivan, son of famed musician Aaron and nephew of Art, Charles and Cyril, brings his five-piece crew back to town for another highly anticipated show. This crew is pedigreed: Neville, who indicates in the band's biography that his least favorite hurricane is “that bitch Katrina,” has jammed with North Mississippi All Stars and Galactic. Drummer Raymond Weber's resume includes the Mardi Gras Indians. Bassist Tony Hall has worked with Jewel, Harry Connick Jr. and Trey Anastasio. Guitarist Nick Daniels is known for his work with Etta James and Boz Skaggs. What else need be said? If you really dig thick, greasy musical jambalaya, this is your chance to indulge. Founder of Beanland and former Widespread Panic guitarist George McConnell opens the 18-and-up show.
