The Blind Boys of Alabama

Blind Bloys of Alabama
The Blind Boys of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music. Nearly seventy-five years after they hit their first notes together, the Blind Boys of Alabama are exceptional not only in their longevity, but also in the breadth of their catalog and their relevance to contemporary roots music. Since 2000, they have won five Grammy® Awards and four Gospel Music Awards, and have delivered their spiritual message to countless listeners.

Longevity and major awards aside, The Blind Boys have earned praise for their remarkable interpretations of everything from traditional gospel favorites to contemporary spiritual material.   With as much momentum as the Blind Boys have gathered in the last several years, there is no chance of slowing them down.

The Blind Boys' live shows are roof- raising musical events that appeal to audiences of all cultures, as evidenced by an international itinerary that has taken them to virtually every continent.  The Blind Boys of Alabama have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 75 years and shows no signs of diminishing.

Dumpstaphunk

Dumpstaphunk
A decade evolved from their debut at 2003's New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Dumpstaphunk offers fans an unforgettable live experience steeped in the Big Easy tradition of a good time. The quintet features Ivan Neville on vocals, B3 and Clav, the double bass attack and soulful voices of Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III, Ian Neville on guitar, and the monster addition of Nikki Glaspie on drums and vocals. From annual performances at New Orleans' Jazz Fest -- "The colossal low end and filthy grooves they threw down from the Gentilly Stage must have set a Jazz Fest record for baddest bass jams ever." (Bass Player Magazine, 2012) -- to music rooms and festivals across the nation, Dumpstaphunk continues to spread an unmistakably New Orleans groove with hard-hitting performances that dare listeners not to move. “We always keep the spontaneity going, that’s something I love about this band," says Ivan. “We can funk it out with the best of them, but we also like to showcase how all sorts of music can come together and push the boundaries of what funk music is.

Dumpstaphunk's new release, Dirty Word, re-imagines their genre, holding true to the opinionated, vintage funk of Sly & the Family Stone and Parliament Funkadelic, but with a modern edge that forays into gospel, blues, second-line, R&B and straight-up rock n’ roll! True to New Orleans tradition, Dumpsta’s friends and family Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, Rebirth Brass Band, Skerik, the Grooveline Horns, Art Neville, Ani DiFranco and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers kick the Dirty Word sessions up a notch. "The whole record speaks to the righteousness of music. We’re not necessarily telling a specific story, but expressing how music makes things right for everyone in their own way. Our fans can feel that vibe and let it take them wherever they need to. We just hope to spread the good word through funk, if we can create an escape, give people a reason to get down and forget their problems, then we're doing what we set out to do”.

Hot Tuna

hot tuna From their days playing together as teenagers to their current acoustic and electric blues, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and core members of Hot Tuna, have consistently led American music for the last 50 years. Jorma and Jack began playing together in the early 60’s while growing up in Washington D.C. In the mid 60s, Jorma joined a new rock band in San Francisco called The Jefferson Airplane and summoned his friend Jack from DC, who played the bass.

While in The Jefferson Airplane the pair remained loyal to the blues, jazz, bluegrass, and folk influences that they had learned from. While in San Francisco and on the road, they would play together and worked up a set of songs that they would often play at small clubs after having played shows with the Airplane. This led to the creation of Hot Tuna. After two decades of acoustic and electric concert tours and albums, the 1990s brought a new focus on acoustic music to Hot Tuna. More intimate venues with a more individual connection to the audience became increasingly frequent stops. Soon, the loud electric sound disappeared entirely from Hot Tuna tours.

For the last few years, Jorma and Jack have been joined by the mandolin virtuoso Barry Mitterhoff, a veteran of bluegrass, celtic, folk, and rock music. Barry has found a new voice in working with Hot Tuna, and the fit has been good. It’s been a long and fascinating road to numerous exciting destinations. Two things have never changed: They still love to play as much as they did as kids in Washington D.C., and there are still many, many exciting miles yet to travel on their musical odyssey.

Wavy Gravy

Wavy_gravy_200w.jpgOriginally known as Hugh Romney, Wavy became famous in the counter culture movement when he stood on the stage of the original Woodstock concert and announced...." What we have in mind is breakfast in bed for 400,000!" Over the past three + decades, Wavy’s primary focus has been Camp Winnarainbow, a circus and performing arts camp for children that he co-directs with his wife Jahanara and raising FUN’ds for the Seva Foundation, which he co-founded in 1978 with Larry Brilliant, Ram Dass and a group of public health professionals. Wavy is also know as a Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor. Through his good work on behalf of the planet and its least fortunate residents, Wavy Gravy has achieved his own brand of sainthood.
