Members of Lettuce and Dumpstaphunk Deliver The Late-Night Funk At Cervantes Post-Phish

first_imgWith Phish delivering what was yet another memorable Dick’s performance last night, Lettuce’s Adam Deitch and Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff, along with Dumpstaphunk’s Ivan Neville and Nick Daniels put on a late-night funk clinic at Cervantes’s The Other Side to keep the party going until well past 3am.The Lettuce New York brand of funk combined with Dumpstaphunk‘s classic New Orleans style was the perfect elixir to keep the crowd zoned in from start to finish. The group went all in on covers such as Sly and the Family Stone‘s “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin),” and The Meters‘ “Hey Pocky Way,” and “Africa” (set to “New Orleans” lyrics).Neville is a master at delivering the organ grooves, while Daniels is always locked in on bass; both provided powerful vocals throughout the night. Shmeeans took things to the next level on lead guitar with some filthy guitar licks. The “Boy Wonder,” Adam Deitch, proves time and time again why he is one of the best drummers in the game today. Straight beats all day with this one.The quartet will take another swing at it tonight for a proper finish to the now annual 3-day Colorado Labor Day weekend festivities.
