Corey Henry - Lapeitah“The Next Funk Superstar from New Orleans”

The former leader of the Little Rascals Brass band turned favorite lead player for New Orleans jam band phenom Galactic, Corey Henry stepping out with Lapeitah, his national debut release from Louisiana Red Hot Records. Another outstanding Treme trombonist in the tradition of Trombone Shorty and Glen David Andrews, the Treme Funktet frontman is himself a brass band funk master with a rich pedigree that reads like a New Orleans royal coat of arms. While Corey’s original bands have created many of the most popular songs on the second line scene, on Lapeitah, Henry teams up with Brooklyn based Pimps of Joytime producer Brian J to breathe new life into the notoriously infectious brass/funk sound.

With guest appearances from heavy hitters like Corey Glover from Living Colour and Greg Thomas from George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, the album’s thrust lies in its ability to sweep from the broad, epic rock of Jimi Hendrix’s “If 6 Was 9,” to the timeless whoop and holler of the absolute new standard in second-line pride song found in “Baby C’mon,” with push-to- the-edge vocal from Cole Williams. Featuring one of the last known recordings of the late Trumpet Black and a keep-it- in-the- family collaboration with Henry’s daughter Jazz, the album plays like a 6th Ward block party, complete with youthful wit and the aged wisdom of the old guard porch stoopers. Equal parts anthemic and soulful, Lapeitah is most importantly, unbelievably funky.

Emerging Psychedelic folk-rock and soul diva Lilli Lewis unleashes her national debut on Louisiana Red Hot with her latest single “O, Let Your Light Shine Bright.” Lewis is an award-winning pianist, composer, and songstress of rare grace and grit who conjures the likes of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Big Mama Thornton, Odetta, and Janis Joplin when in full gear. The Athens, Georgia native first made her presence known in New Orleans through “The Shiz,” her indie rock and soul band known as the Alabama Shakes of the Northshore. Lewis made her home here in New Orleans in 2014, and immediately began performing with some of the city’s favorites including Betty Shirley, Sharon Martin, and sousaphone maestro Kirk Joseph’s Backyard Groove.

In 2016, following an independent release of a new EP Orange Music, Vol. 1, Lewis teamed up with Louisiana Red Hot Records for national debut release with her latest single “O, Let Your Light Shine Bright,” making her the only woman currently represented among Louisiana Red Hot’s esteemed roster. Co-produced by Lewis with TJ Barends, the single is a warm and unassuming invitation that sinks easily beneath the skin while its B side “Walk Upon Water” is an all-out festival style jam complete with a saxophone chorus and searing guitar work.

With vocals said to have “enough energy to power a large city,” Lewis brings her songs of empowerment and personal responsibility to ever widening audiences, never failing to deliver “innovative, soulful music that will never go out of style.” www.lillilewis.com

threeMuses“…one of the most amazing vocalists alive today. He sanctifies, electrifies, hellafies. If you weren’t dancing at this show you were dead.” – Houston Press

On a good night Glen David Andrews is the most charismatic performer in New Orleans. Live at Three Muses perfectly captures one of those entrancing moments from a fiery GDA set of trad jazz, rock, gospel, and funk.

dirty word“Ivan’s so good…I play with him.” – Keith Richards

“Dumstaphunk has grown from a small side project into one of music’s most prestigious modern funk ensembles.” – Rolling Stone

A decade into the formation of Dumpstaphunk, the New Orleans’ all-star collective – Ivan Neville (vocals, B3 and Clav), the double bass attack and soulful voices of Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III, Ian Neville on guitar, and the monster addition of Nikki Glaspie (formerly with Beyonce’s all-female band) on drums and vocals – releases their third studio album, Dirty Word.

Initially started as an impromptu line-up of some of New Orleans’ tightest players, hand-picked by Ivan Neville to accompany his 2003 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival performance, Dumpstaphunk has become a stalwart touring act, richly deserving the title “Heavyweight Champions of Funk.” Press accolades for the band have ranged from the New York Times hailing, in 2007, “Dumpstaphunk is the best funk band from New Orleans right now,” to Bass Player Magazine saying, “The colossal low end and filthy grooves they threw down from the Gentilly Stage must have set a Jazz Fest record for baddest bass jams ever.”

Dirty Word offers a fresh and varied take on funk, blues, gospel, second-line, R&B and rock ’n’ roll. The album features special guest appearances by Art Neville, Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band, Skerik, Ani DiFranco and Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers). Catch the band, supporting the album with major venue and festival appearances, throughout 2013. But be forewarned…the groove will be nasty and the funk will be deep!
