Dumpstaphunk To Tour Hard in 2009

ivan neville, dumpstaphunk

Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk will spend the rest of the year (and many more to come) doing what they do best – making music, both on the stage and in the studio. The band (Ivan Neville, Tony Hall, Raymond Weber, Nick Daniels, and Ian Neville) will spend February celebrating Mardi Gras on the road, bringing their unique monster of a groove to familiar haunts like The Independent in San Francisco and The Bottling Company in Hattiesburg as well as their first trips to Reno and Houston. This first leg of the tour, which also includes a rare appearance at The Mint in Los Angeles, will culminate with a hometown pre-Mardi Gras show at New Orleans’ Howlin’ Wolf.

After putting the finishing touches on their first full-length record which will be released later this year, Dumpstaphunk will hit the road again for another month including shows at Martyr’s Chicago, the band’s debut performance in Philadelphia, and a return to The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC, a city where they recently delivered a standout performance in front of 7200 music lovers as part of Warren Haynes’ 20th Annual Christmas Jam. Anchoring this run will be two special Post-Allman Brothers Band shows at the Highline Ballroom in New York City.

Looking ahead, the band will play a trio of hometown shows during Jazz Fest, including a high-profile slot at the Fairgrounds and the band’s traditional fest-closing Sunday night show at the legendary Tipitina’s, and will make its first appearance at Colorado’s legendary Red Rock Amphitheatre in August. A perennial Festival favorite, Dumpstaphunk will spend its summer supporting its new record playing in front tens of thousands of fans, both new and old.
