About this event

Live For Live Music is thrilled to announce that The Funk Sessions will head to New Orleans on Tuesday, October 12th during the “daze between” Jazz Fest weekends.

The long-running monthly funk super-jam, which typically takes place at Cervantes' in Denver, CO, will set up shop at The Maison on Frenchmen Street for the second time ever with a lineup featuring organ wizard Robert Walter, Dumpstaphunk bassist/guitarist/vocalist Tony Hall, decorated touring bassist Kevin Scott (Col. Bruce Hampton, Jimmy Herring), Funky Nation frontman/trombonist Big Sam Williams, multi-talented saxophonist/keyboardist/producer Khris Royal (Dark Matter, Rebelution), vocalist Lyle Divinsky, and trumpeter Parris Fleming in addition to a trio of Turkuaz members in drummer Michelangelo Carubba, guitarist Craig Brodhead, and vocalist Shira Elias.

Out in Denver, The Funk Sessions played a critical roll in the gradual reopening of live shows earlier this year. Beginning in March with multi-show series of socially-distant, seated shows, the series offered many musicians their first shots at playing live in 2021 after a year without gigs. Now, as live music scales back up and touring bands hit the road once again, this all-star band—made up of part local NOLA heavy-hitters, part Denver Funk Sessions mainstays, and all musicians at the top of their respective games—will bring the party to Frenchmen for a full-scale funk blowout.

Tickets for The Funk Sessions at The Maison in New Orleans during the “daze between” Jazz Fest weekends on Tuesday, October 12th at 11:00 p.m. are on sale now!
