“Lett Us In The Dumpsta”: Members Of Lettuce & Dumpstaphunk To Regroup in NOLA

first_imgMembers of Lettuce and Dumpstaphunk will team up for a special late-night show during weekend one of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.Heavyweights of the modern jam-funk era, New Orleans’ Dumpstaphunk is the most physical band to sprout of the Crescent City in a long time. Their dueling basses and greasy NOLA stank have created a bold and aggressive style that informs the entire genre; from inside their historic musical city and sprawling out to the Midwest and both coasts, their influence knows no boundaries. Always busting loose with classic performances during Jazz Fest, keyboardist/vocalist/local icon Ivan Neville‘s popular syndicate has over a decade of legendary hometown threauxdowns under their belts. For eight glorious years, Dumpstaphunk was the NOLA heartbeat of the iconic Bear Creek Music and Art Festival at Spirit of Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida, and often shared their raucous stage with various friends in other bands, none more so than Lettuce.Hailing from the Northeast, the future-funk hip-hop Voltron known as Lettuce is no stranger to the city of New Orleans. Presenting a more Herbie Hancock/Tower of Power styled attack in their earlier years, Lettuce spent many nights soaking up the NOLA gumbo of grooves and incorporating the sounds into their own potent stew. Lettuce has always welcomed the stalwarts of the New Orleans funk game like Dumpstaphunk to their stage, both in the city of New Orleans and in New York, and as far away as the legendary Bear Creek, too.Dr. Klaw – “Just Kissed My Baby” – New Orleans, LA – One Eyed Jacks – 5/1/10[Video: TheFunkItBlog]It’s no secret that Lettuce holds Crescent City royalty like The Meters in the highest possible esteem, and have invited the likes of George Porter Jr. and Cyril Neville to their largest stage of the year, as the dynamic NOLA pair appeared at 2017’s RAGE ROCKS at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. Lettuce has a long and colorful relationship with both Ivan and Ian Neville, as the keyboardist/vocalist sat in with Lettuce at their very first gig at Tipitina’s back in 2003. Ian Neville is the best kept secret in his legendary family, and has stepped in on guitar on a variety of occasions, including a Royal Family Ball late night at the Howlin’ Wolf and a special performance at Bear Creek 2009.Dumpstaphunk bassist/vocalist Nick Daniels III is among Lettuce’s favorite musicians, period. His patented high vocal register and thunder-crunk bass work are THE key component to the Lettuce/Dumpsta side project that bears his nickname, Dr. Klaw. There is a great deal of reciprocal respect between the Dumpsta and LETT camps, and it’s clear that Lettuce is honored that members of their favorite current New Orleans group are going to host an authentic Jazz Fest late night collab.Dumpstaphunk’s Ivan Neville, Ian Neville, along with bassist Nick Daniels III are teaming up with Adam Deitch, Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff, Ryan Zoidis, and Eric “Benny” Bloom to form Lett Us In The Dumpsta on Sunday, April 28th at 2:00 a.m. at the raging Frenchmen Street club, The Maison.In addition to a bombastic collection of videos that capture some of the most memorable Dumpsta/LETT collaborations of the past decade, L4LM’s B.Getz sought comments from members of each band on the forthcoming late night rage. Thoughts from Dumpsta’s Ian Neville and Lettuce’s Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff,  as well as some comments from Bear Creek Music and Arts Festival producer Paul Levine. Paul was instrumental in bringing these two titanic squads together for some of the finest collaborations in that festival’s beautifully funky history, and planting the seeds for continued glory such as what is set to go down at Maison in NOLA on April 28th.Dumpstaphunk DumpstaJam – Bear Creek Music Festival (Part 1) – 11/12/11Dumpstaphunk DumpstaJam – Bear Creek Music Festival (Part 2) – 11/12/11[Videos: TheFunkItBlog]Ian Neville:The way I remember connecting with those guys is that I met Kraz first. Soulive was opening for the Funky Meters, this is late 90’s maybe. That was my intro to that camp. When they had started their Royal Fam sh*t with their whole crew and all that,  I saw how they got down and that sh*t blew me away. Soulive blew me away first. Then (through Soulive) I met (Adam) Deitch and ZWAD (Ryan Zoidis, Lettuce sax) and Sam K. (Kinninger, ex-Lettuce sax). Soon after Nigel (Hall) came in the mix with both bands, and over the years their crew just kept adding and building with seriously talented cats. I just started paying attention to what they were doing.My favorite comparative dynamic between us, the New Orleans guys, and those guys in Lettuce is how they absorbed things, those guys really did their homework about the predecessors and originators of the music that we all dug. Whether it be their recording styles, or their show tendencies, it was just a total comprehensive dig into that sh*t, to absorb all the good elements of the music we all enjoyed. That was just a cool similar track or dynamic, whatever you want to call it, that we shared. We all had the same influences, coming from two completely different worlds, sources, and our absorption styles were different. I feel like the NY camp, the Lettuce guys, there was something always a little more crisp about how they go about their sh*t — I don’t mean that to slight any of our New Orleans cats, because it’s the exact opposite on our end. We had the dirt, we had the street, we had that organic absorption of the city and our culture, what we were living.  See, they knew how to take their interest and love for similar music, but they absorbed it in a completely different way, and then they reinterpreted it. Those comparisons, those similarities and differences, are why we all have fun playing music together now.Bear Creek Allstars, feat.

To me, it’s one of the few music festivals in this country that has tried to retain the original culture of America, the culture of blues, of jazz, you know, people music. I just hope that in some way, Lettuce has gotten into the hearts of some of the people from New Orleans. I’m talking about the musicians who have built that place. I hope that they view us as a band who is trying to pay respect to the city, to all of the artists who came before us, all the NOLA artists that we love so much. For us, it’s always been about putting them first, and I hope they feel that from us down there. ‘Cause obviously we love New Orleans! We love the culture, we love the city, we love the art, we love music, we love the food, we love Jazz Fest. We’ve been going down there for a long time. Some of the people from NOLA are like family to us at this point. This Jazz Fest I’ll be playing with Ivan Neville, Ian Neville, Nick Daniels III, and others. It is the moments onstage playing with those musical idols and our musical family, it’s joy, fear, nervousness, awe, and then you wipe all that away and you just have fun and funk out!Dr. Klaw with Cyril Neville 4/27/16 New Orleans, LA @ Fiya Fest at Mardi Gras World[Video: TheFunkItBlog]Adam Deitch, Nigel & Tony Hall, Viveca Hawkins, Ian & Ivan Neville MISS YOU 11/26/16 SF BOOM BOOM[Video: Peter Lull]Paul Levine:When we started Bear Creek, obviously funk music and the New Orleans Jazz Fest ethos were deeply at the heart of it, that was the foundation that we built the whole show upon. Dumpstaphunk represented the nastiest & greasiest funk from the Crescent City, while Lettuce repped the brash & edgy Northeastern swag, both of their unique styles of funk were at the core of Bear Creek. Their individual band performances at the festival were legendary. But when Dumpsta and Lettuce guys would share the stage together, be it the Dumpsta Jam, Dr. Klaw, later years in NOLA the Bear Creek All-Stars show or even a Royal Family Ball, what happened on those stages was truly magic. These bands have a certain chemistry that works on special level, and it is something that oozes New Orleans.Tickets to Lett Us In The Dumpsta at The Maison are currently on sale on Eventbrite.(Art by Kellin Townsend – @kellintownsend)Date: Sunday, April 28th, 2019 (technically early AM April 29th)Artist: Live For Live Music Presents: Lett Us In The Dumpsta featuring Ivan Neville, Ian Neville & Nick Daniels of Dumpstaphunk + Adam Deitch, Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff, Ryan Zoidis & Eric “Benny” Bloom of LettuceVenue: The Maison – 508 Frenchmen St, New Orleans, LA 70116Tickets: $35 Advance / $40 Day Of Show //// VIP  $60 Advance / $65 Day Of Show (VIP includes expedited entry, dedicated elevated VIP area VIP bar & more)Time: Doors –  2:00 AMThe musical heritage of New Orleans will be on full display during the 50th-anniversary edition of New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival this spring.

It’s unfortunate to lose in World Cup final: Subhadeep Ghosh

first_imgOur Sports ReporterGUWAHATI: He is happy the way Indian team played in the entire competition of the Women T20 World Cup but Subhadeep Ghosh, the fielding coach of the team, is little bit upset too. The reason is very simple: Indian women team narrowly missed the cup.India dominated the entire competition and reached the sumit clash without losing a single game. However girls in blue lost the final to host Australia.Sharing his experience with The Sentinel over telephone about the recently concluded Women T20 Wold Cup Subhadeep said, “It was a very good competition for us and the team really played solid cricket throughout the meet. It’s unfortunate that we lost the final at the iconic MCG which witnessed 80,000 plus crowd on that particular day.”Sharing his experience with Indian Women Cricket team the former first class cricketer said, “It’s a nice experience. We have a great team with mix of youth and experience. Shafali Verma, the young opener of our team, is very talented cricketer and she played a crucial role to take India into the final. Shafali is only 16 and the way she played in the mega event was brilliant. Our batting and spin attack is one of the best in the world. Girls are also very serious about their fitness. But I admit we need little more improvement on that area.”Meanwhile although cricket has been called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic right now, Subhadeep today advised the State cricketers to keep focus on their fitness during their stay at home. “There are many ways to keep fit yourself without going gym or at the ground. You can do shadow practice or different agility drills on the terrace or even in drawing room and I feel cricketers must do it to keep themselves fit,” said KKR’s last season fielding coach.Also Read: Former cricketer Subhadeep Ghosh appointed fielding coach for Indian women’s cricket teamAlso Watch: Sale of vitamins and other nutritional products rise due to coronavirus scarelast_img read more
