The Complete Guide To New Orleans Jazz Fest Late Nights

The shows were filled with highlights, including an a cappella “Space Oddity,” covers of Beatles’ “I Am The Walrus” and Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times Bad Times, and tons of great original music and jams.Among those many great jams, the “Twist” from night one ranks highly.

Justice.” You can download the single for free, right here.Dumpstaphunk will be coming to New York’s American Beauty for their second annual Phunksgiving Eve performance on November 23rd, bringing along the likes of Eric Krasno, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Nikki Glaspie and The Steel Town Horns as guest musicians throughout the night.
