Northern California’s Neo-Funk outfit The Bumptet will be rolling into Nevada City March 7th to perform at The Stone House. The members of the band have an extremely long collective resume. Guitarist Sean Lehe spent four years touring with the popular jam-groove band Izabella, as well as travelling with the bay-area bluegrass band Poor Man’s Whisky. Bassist Jonathan Stoyanoff spent time on the road with Johnny A, and later played over 600 shows from coast to coast with Global Funk Council. The band also includes Sam Phelps on keys, (also formerly of Izabella), Barry Eldridge on drums, and new addition Adam Walter, (of Chingus), on saxophone. Their live sound is self-described as The Headhunters meets Phish. You can listen to their music at thebumptet.com, but don’t expect to the hear carbon-copy renditions of their songs at the show. They pride themselves on delivering high energy, improvised sets of funk music with jazz caliber execution, including “the occasional foray into the jam-band outer stratosphere”. This will prove to be a night that satisfies music aficionados and dancers alike. Showtime is 9:30pm.
