Jazz Fest After Hours: 4.30.15


Week Two of Jazz Fest is ramping up, but the music continues after the Fair Grounds close. Tonight NOLA gets funky with standard bearers Galactic, more jammy supergroups, some rock from the Revivalists, and more. Check it all out down below.

 

Galactic, One Eyed Jack’s, 9p.m.

Since Galactic's inception 20 years ago, their sound has progressed from organic New Orleans funk and jazz jam band, to a different description coined by bassist Robert Mercurio: gritty, unpolished funk. While band members might pop up in all sorts of side projects around town, they always return to their collaborative songwriting and performances with the legendary Galactic.

 

FIYA POWA!, Maison, 1a.m.

Another allstar funk mashup featuring members of the Meters, Galactic, and Dumpstaphunk. Plus Krl Denson! The rest of the band is George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, Stanton Moore, Tony Hall, Big Sam, Roosevelt Collier and Jennifer Hartswick

 

Oteil Burbridge, Marco Benevento, Skerik, Johnny Vidacovich, Maple Leaf, 10:30p.m.

 

The Revivalists-All in the Family, Howlin’ Wolf 9p.m.

They’ve been around since 2007, and the septet’s combination of indie-dance, soul and funk has evolved into a favorite among fans near and afar. Hear favorites from past albums as well as tracks off of their hit, “City of Sound.” Other acts in the lineup include Rebirth Brass Band, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Naughty Professor and RumpelSTEELskin (feat. Ed Williams of The Revivalists).

 

WORSHIP MY ORGAN, One Eyed Jack’s, 12a.m.

Because one Hammond B3 organ is never enough, Joe Russo and Robert Walter will be jamming onto simultaneously. Experimental sax-master Skerik, multi-instrumental prodigy Marco Benevento and DJ Logic will round out the bill.

 

The Royal Family Ball, Joy, 10p.m.

Royal family Records is the vanguard of the Brooklyn based funk scene. Cofounder Adam Deitch is bringing the entire incestuous music scene to town including corn jewels Solve and Lettuce. The Soul Rebels will be opening.

 

Shorty Fest, Generations Hall, 8p.m.

New Orleans favorite son Trombone Shorty hosts his own star-studded celebration. Troy Andrews is headlining his own festival for the third year. The concert for a cause just released their impressive 2015 lineup which will also includes John Boutte, Sweet Crude, and an all-star salute to Big Chief Monk Boudreaux.
