Apr 25 @ 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

In 2009, the original New Orleans Jazz Vipers morphed into two new bands, Joe Braun’s The New Orleans Jazz Vipers and the New Orleans Cottonmouth Kings featuring six former Jazz Vipers. You can hear both bands playing regularly on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans, and both have released new CDs available at their websites.

The original New Orleans Jazz Vipers were a popular and active band in New Orleans for many years, pioneers of the Frenchmen Street scene, with a twice-weekly residency at the Spotted Cat 2003 to 2009. Noteable festival appearances included the Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, Lincoln Center Midsummer Night Swing and the Monterey Jazz Festival (in September 2005). Part of the unique sound of the Jazz Vipers came from the fact that they rarely used any amplification. The sound of the band was at the same time retro, full of energy and unpretentious, with both up-tempo dance numbers and well-chosen ballads; it has been aptly described as neo-trad-jazz. The band received many awards in Louisiana including the Gambit’s “Big Easy” award in 2005 for “Best Traditional Jazz Band,” and Offbeat Magazine’s “Best of the Beat” award in 2004 for “Best Traditional Jazz Album” (for the album “Live on Frenchmen Street”). In 2001 and 2003 they won the “Best of the Beat” award for “Best Emerging Traditional Jazz Band.”

The Good For Nothin’ Band is to the New Orleans music scene what Al Capone was to the Chicago Mafia, ” The Enforcer of Wow “ the hot bang club, original, defying cultures, tastes, genres, and decor, sacrilege in all its perfection, a feast for the soul of wayfaring pilgrims searching for the Un-Holy Grail of seedy salvation. This pack of rouge delinquents will decapitate your senses with songs and music crafted from utter mayhem and sheer debauchery. The lucky pilgrim who ventures into the room with these deplorable angels with leave molecularly scathed, never to be integrated into normalcy again, forever changed to roam the earth in the fog of delightful Whiggery. When in Nola, seek out these degenerate scallawags and drink in the groove shadows of this notorious city of wonder as they bombard you with their infamous musical tales of the city of dreams. The Good For Nothin Band , coming to your local sleaze palace and insane asylum.

“It’s voodoo of some kind the way Moore hammers out the beat of the first two tracks, “Squash Blossom” and “Pie Eyed Manc,” only to have them shape-shift into the fluid motion of Robert Walter’s organ and the quick flick of Will Bernard’s guitar.” (Doug Collete, All About Jazz)

***The Original STANTON MOORE TRIO***
featuring:
STANTON MOORE – Drums/Galactic
ROBERT WALTER- B3/Greyboy Allstars
WILL BERNARD – Guitar/TJ Kirk

STANTON MOORE
Born and raised in New Orleans, Stanton Moore is a dedicated drummer and performer especially connected to the city, its culture and collaborative spirit. Driven and inspired by the thriving music scene of his hometown which includes such greats as Professor Longhair, Doctor John and The Meters, Moore’s name is now mentioned amongst these Big Easy mainstays.
In the early ‘90s, Moore helped found the New Orleans-based essential funk band Galactic. Their first album, 1996’s widely acclaimed Coolin’ Off, led to an intense tour schedule of nearly 200 gigs a year for the next ten years. Building on their fan base by adding an esteemed list of all-star collaborations to the six albums that followed, Galactic continues to amass a worldwide audience via recording and touring globally. Moore launched his solo career in 1998 aided by eight-string guitar virtuoso Charlie Hunter and saxophonist Skerik (Les Claypool, John Scofield, Roger Waters). The group recorded All Kooked Out! featuring a handful of local New Orleans musicians as well.

ROBERT WALTER
Robert Walter performs all his own stunts. For 20 years, the San Diego native has been pulling drawbars and pushing the limits of the Hammond B3 organ. Walter helped form the the Greyboy Allstars in 1993 with Karl Denson, Elgin Park, Chris Stillwell, Zak Najor, and DJ Greyboy. Influenced by soul-jazz and funk records from the 1960s and 70s, the band juxtaposed jazz improvisation and dance music. They continue to record and perform to a committed fan base. The Greyboy Allstars also served as the band for Robert’s first solo record, Spirit of ’70 which also featured saxophonist and Miles Davis sideman Gary Bartz.

WILL BERNARD
Guitarist Will Bernard, a Berkeley, CA native and Brooklyn NY transplant studied guitar and piano from an early age with Dave Creamer, Art Lande and Julian White later developing and interest in classical music composition. Since then, Bernard has participated in a host of boundary stretching groups, ranging from jazz, hip-hop and world music to experimental music, with many stops in between. In the 90’s Bernard recorded and performed with many projects under the direction of acclaimed producer Lee Townsend and worked with groups ranging from the Hindustani-influenced Jai Uttal to the political hip-hop group the Coup. The most commercially successful of these projects was the group T.J. Kirk (with Charlie Hunter).

CHRIS WOOD

Christopher Wood is an American bass player, best known for playing with the avant-garde jazz-funk trio Medeski Martin & Wood. Born in Pasadena, California, Wood formed MMW in 1991 with John Medeski and Billy Martin. Wood also collaborates with his brother Oliver Wood as The Wood Brothers. Their debut studio release, entitled Ways Not to Lose, was produced by John Medeski. Wood plays both upright and electric basses. One technique he uses on the upright bass involves using a drumstick as a slide near the bridge of the bass. Wood bows between the drumstick and the bridge to produce a high-pitched, warbling sound, similar to a theremin. Wood is also known to insert a sheet of notation paper behind and between the strings of his bass which creates a unique “snare bass” sound, an adaption of a technique devised on the double bass by Bertram Turetzky. This is featured on the Medeski, Martin, and Wood recording of “Paper Bass” on the album “Friday Afternoon in the Universe”.

SKERIK

Skerik is an American saxophonist from Seattle, Washington. Performing on the tenor and baritone saxophone, often with electronics and loops, Skerik is a pioneer in a playing style that has been dubbed saxophonics. He is a founding member of Critters Buggin, Garage a Trois and Skerik’s Syncopated Taint Septet. He is also an original member of both Les Claypool’s Fancy Band and Frog Brigade and has toured with and played with numerous others in a variety of genres.

**THE CROOKED STUFF**


**IDEATEAM**

“[…] expecting the funk in its purest primordial form: A confluence of tight, technical tunes dripping with that amalgam of mud and forest floor, where spores rise of their own accord and you have no choice but to sit and sully your blue-and-white dress to consider the mushroom, to heed the nearby placard reading: “Eat me.”
– Dave Kempa, Sacramento News & Review

Ideateam is a 9-piece ensemble driven to fuse many influences together in a fresh way. Loaded with two guitars, bass, drums, percussion, brass section, and soulful vocals, the group explores the corridors of groove while flipping through styles like a deck of cards, flowing in and around various genres, noticeably leaning on the funk. They brings sounds old and new, blended with a few drops of extraterrestrial soundscapes – presented by a group of people who simply love to play music. Ideateam has shared the stage with several festival / tour circuit favorites (Orgone, Polyrhythmics, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Monophonics, Rubblebucket, Scott Pemberton Band…) and has been honored to open for legends such as Bernard Purdie and The Headhunters. Ideateam’s debut album ‘&?!’ (And What Now) landed in 2014 and contains original instrumental groove fusion. Their second full-length album ‘Moving Still’ hit October 2016. The group seeks to continue evolving the live music experience they are quickly becoming known for, and further cultivating a positive connection with people through music. Keep an eye out for their upcoming third full studio album in early 2018!


**EL METATE**

There are next level, life affirming bands out there…and then there’s El Metate.
Since 2013, they’ve explored the outer realms of psychedelic funk through stop-on-a-dime originals and interpretations of rare groove classics awash in a haze of soaring guitar, Hammond Organ, and Fender Rhodes.Their music is not just a trip across the West Coast, but an intergalactic journey narrated by organ and horn stabs with a backbeat that fuels the rocket ride throughout.
After headlining sold-out shows to enthusiastic (if not rabid) audiences and sharing the stage with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Monophonics, Tea Leaf Green, Robert Walter’s 20th Congress, Con Brio, Wil Blades, and more, El Metate has begun to take the show on the road. With a West Coast tour under their belts and a follow up LP slated for fall 2018, these musical retrofuturists are ready to share their music the masses. It’s a sound, it’s a presence, it’s a movement. El Metate—remember that name.

**THE HUMIDORS**

Recently featured by Relix Magazine as the up and coming, this band is the Bay Area’s finest. Everything The Humidors play is given a heavy contemporary spin that splinters dance floors and leaves audiences in a sweaty daze. The band is a well-oiled unit with a polyrhythmic approach that balances short, sharp solos with an overwhelming collective approach.” – J. Poet, SF Weekly

Hailing from the Bay Area, The Humidors have been churning out their own unique brand of party music for half a decade. Combining elements of hard-hitting funk, greasy soul, vintage R&B, soul jazz and more you can be sure that this eight-piece unit is committed to the groove in all its shapes and forms.

With the recent addition of Andre Cruz’s soulful and heartfelt lead vocals, The Humidors are taking their music to the next level and ready to spread the Gospel of Funk to dance floors everywhere. Having shared the stage with acts such as Dumpstaphunk, The New Mastersounds, The Meters’ Leo Nocentelli, Shuggie Otis, and the late, great Bernie Worrell, The Humidors are in their element on stage. Bursts and washes of B3, punchy horns, chugging percussion, thumping bass, and burning guitar leads all interweave in an infectious polyrhythmic stew.


**THE CROOKED STUFF**

The Crooked Stuff is a heavy electro soulfunk sound system from San Francisco.

ONE NIGHT ONLY with

**JOHN MEDESKI’S MAD SKILLET**

Mad Skillet was born of a late night show in New Orleans, LA during Jazz Fest 2015. It came out kicking and screaming, laughing and wailing, laying down a deep New Orleans groove steeped in jazz, blues, psychedelic rock, and R&B. Band members are leader, keyboardist John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood, The Word), Grammy nominated guitarist/bandleader Will Bernard (Medicine Hat, Party Hats), New Orleans native sousaphone player Kirk Joseph (Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Backyard Groove), and drummer Terence Higgins (Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ani DiFranco) also a New Orleans native.Medeski and Bernard’s yearly quest to play together during Jazz Fest found a special chemistry with the addition of Joseph and Higgins. The eclectic, far-reaching backgrounds of Medeski and Bernard alongside this legendary NOLA rhythm section generated what Medeski calls, “a vast musical universe with limitless potential”. “Terence and Kirk are a great rhythm section. Classic. They’re overflowing with tradition, yet always ready to go any direction the music calls for. It’s rare to find musicians with such deep roots who are also open to experimentation. I’ve always wanted an excuse to play with them, so when Will mentioned using Kirk on the gig, I thought it was the perfect time to bring Terence in too. And Will Bernard… well, something happens to Will when he’s in The Crescent City. It’s like superman coming out of the phone booth!” says Medeski.John Medeski is best known for his buoyant, organ-centric approach to jazz as a part of trailblazing trio Medeski Martin & Wood, he also collaborates often with John Zorn and John Scofield and plays in lauded super-groups The Word, Spectrum Road, and Phil & Friends and in 2013 he released a introspective solo piano album on OKeh/Sony Records called, A Different Time.

The Good For Nothin’ Band
May 3 @ 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM

The Good For Nothin’ Band is to the New Orleans music scene what Al Capone was to the Chicago Mafia, ” The Enforcer of Wow “ the hot bang club, original, defying cultures, tastes, genres, and decor, sacrilege in all its perfection, a feast for the soul of wayfaring pilgrims searching for the Un-Holy Grail of seedy salvation. This pack of rouge delinquents will decapitate your senses with songs and music crafted from utter mayhem and sheer debauchery. The lucky pilgrim who ventures into the room with these deplorable angels with leave molecularly scathed, never to be integrated into normalcy again, forever changed to roam the earth in the fog of delightful Whiggery. When in Nola, seek out these degenerate scallawags and drink in the groove shadows of this notorious city of wonder as they bombard you with their infamous musical tales of the city of dreams. The Good For Nothin Band , coming to your local sleaze palace and insane asylum.
