Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk Plays State Theatre Tonight

Posted by Alexandra Voigt on 02/23 at 04:13 PM

The New Orleans-based funk band attributed as Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk will play The State Theatre tonight, Wednesday, February 23rd. The show begins at 8 p.m. with State College’s own reggae/rock band, Atlas Soundtrack, opening the night.

Dumpstaphunk formed on a whim in 2003 when keyboardist and vocalist, Ivan Neville, wanted to play a set at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Turns out, the band’s idea of a side-project became the New York Times’ “best funk band from New Orleans.” Come check out the five talented musicians and you, too, will be absorbed in some of Louisiana’s authentic essence.

Who: Dumpstaphunk
When: Tonight, February 23rd at 8 p.m.
Where: The State Theatre

Bio: [Alex] is currently a senior double majoring in Print Journalism and International Studies with a double minor in Music Technology and French. As random as all that may seem, Alex’s true passion lies within the art of music and the countless characteristics of rock and roll. Growing up to everything classic rock, she indulges in Led Zeppelin, The Doors, CCR, The Animals, Neil Young up through 90s grunge and today’s indie/folk rock and electro beats like: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Spoon, The Black Keys, TV on the Radio and Bassnectar!, (don’t turn away, that is only a taste of the list). Alex also loves using music programs like Logic Pro to mix, modulate and place different effects on songs, which is why electronic/techno and dubstep play an essential factor in her everyday life.
