Voodoo Dead

For the 11th consecutive year, NYC-based promoters Nolafunk & CEG honor the spirit and music of New Orleans with their 11th Annual Nolafunk Mardi Gras Ball & Tour. The four shows will feature a band called Voodoo Dead that has only ever performed in New Orleans as a Jazz Fest late-night in 2015 and 2016. This particular lineup features an unprecedented artist lineup with Steve Kimock [RatDog, Rhythm Devils], Jackie Greene [Black Crowes, Phil & Friends], Oteil Burbridge [Dead & Co], Jeff Chimenti [Furthur, The Dead], Wally Ingram [Sheryl Crowe Band, Timbuk 3], plus special guest New Orleans-based Papa Mali of 7 Walkers, plus a brass band to be announced.
Special Guest Papa Mali of 7 Walkers
Special Guest Papa Mali of 7 Walkers
Best known as the 7 Walkers (featuring Bill Kreutzmann and George Porter Jr.) frontman, Papa Mali puts his own distinctive spin on American vernacular music and it shows in his live performances. Mali plays an enticing blend of blues, funk, swamp music, and soul. A second nature skill for most who call New Orleans home.
Funky Dawgz Brass Band
Funky Dawgz Brass Band
The Funky Dawgz Brass Band are one of the premier touring acts on the live music scene today. Emerging from Connecticut, these young men have engulfed the spirit and traditions of New Orleans as well as earned the respect from local musicians who grew up and reside in the city. It is impossible not to enjoy yourself during a show as they play a contagious upbeat mix of traditional New Orleans R&B, original music, hip hop, funk, and today’s top hits with a brass twist.

They have toured nationally from coast to coast, as well as internationally and have been featured in all corners of the live music scene. From playing sold out shows at Madison Square Garden as the horn section for Dispatch, to Camp Bisco, to closing out The Peach Music Festival, their performances flow seamlessly from EDM festivals to jam band festivals to traditional New Orleans second line parades. They were also recently featured multiple times on national televised programming on ESPN (house band for March Madness Tournament Challenge, opening segment of First Take).

There is a reason they were featured as one of Live For Live Music's Brass Bands You Need To Know. The Funky Dawgz are dropping jaws. These high energy horns have been featured on bills with Dispatch, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, We The Kings, Snarky Puppy, The Soul Rebels, Lettuce, The Motet, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Twiddle, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, Bernard Purdie, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, and the list continues.

Come see what all the hype is about.

Ain’t no party like a Funky Dawgz party, ‘cus a Funky Dawgz party don’t stop!
