Dumpstaphunk to Open for Jorma Kaukonen at Plaza Live on October 25, 2014

Dumpstaphunk

There’s just something right about the fusion of jazz and funk, and New Orleans-based Dumpstaphunk really does it right.

Born onstage at the city’s Jazz & Heritage Festival, the band is descended from Neville family bloodlines. Yes, those Nevilles. Ivan Neville on the Hammond B3 keyboard, and cousin Ian Neville on the guitar, join with the groove of dueling basslines from Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III.

On Saturday, October 25, Dumpstaphunk will bring their Big Easy sound to Orlando, opening for Jorma Kaukonen at Plaza Live. Tickets are $20 – $39.50 for this show, and are available online or at the box office. This event is 16 and over for admission.

2CELLOS to Rock Out Plaza Live in Orlando with Openers A Great Big World on October 26, 2013

2CELLOS

Adapting their classical instruments to a modern repertoire, 2CELLOS have crafted a unique sound that they will bring to Plaza Live in Orlando on Saturday, October 26.

This innovative Croatian duo, comprised of Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, are classically trained, however their set lists are anything but. You’re more likely to find renditions of everything from Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” and Sting’s “Fields of Gold,” to AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” and “You Shook Me All Night Long.” Set lists have also had unique covers of songs from Jimi Hendrix, Coldplay, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, and Guns’n’Roses, though they do throw in the occasional classical piece.

They’ve released two albums, including the most recent, In2ition, in January 2013. They’ve also toured with Elton John, and performed on an episode of Glee. These guys are just phenomenal musicians.

Opening will be A Great Big World, another duo whose songs have been heard quite often on TV shows such as So You Think You Can Dance, and Glee. Their music is also being used in the original live-action drama, Contest, airing on the Cartoon Network. Their newest single is “Say Something.”

Tickets for the show are $30-$45, and can be purchased online or at the Plaza Live box office.
