Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, Jeff Sipe Trio

When: Fri., Oct. 12, 9 p.m. 2012

If you've seen or heard Dumpstaphunk, you probably aren't in need of convincing again. Founded and fueled by Neville offspring, they're direct descendants of the Big Easy's original funk trailblazers. They uphold the long heritage with loose, electrified jams. That said, these cats are definitely a generation removed, employing a more predictable modern palette that checks the usual suspects from JB and Bootsy to Kool & The Gang and Teddy Pendergrass. Still, they're great players buoyed by intoxicating energy. Adherents won't blanche, but casual enthusiasts might need more patience (or alcohol). The Jeff Sipe Trio opens. —Chris Parker
