Magic Giant  Saturday, April 9th 2022

Called “the most festive band in the festival circuit,” this American alt-rock band was formed in Los Angeles in 2014 with a style similar to Imagine Dragons, Walk the Moon, The Lumineers, and Mumford & Sons. Their live show can be described as “joyful and inspiring of mass dance-alongs” with multiple TV appearances including The Today Show and Good Morning America. The group has thrilled growing crowds along its 80-city North American and European tour, with their music charting in countries worldwide from Greece to South Africa. Debuting in 2017 with their LP In The Wind, MAGIC GIANT, came out of the gates swinging, with TV appearances ranging from the Today Show to Good Morning America, and Billboard singling them out as one of “10 Awesome Bands” playing Coachella, with their show turning out to be part of the most watched live-stream in history. Their latest single, “My My,” off their sophomore and upcoming studio album, not only symbolizes the deep and heavy chasm of the pandemic but the optimism of getting out of it.

Dumpstaphunk – Sunday, April 10th 2022

Dumpstaphunk stands out amongst New Orleans’ best, cementing themselves as one of the funkiest bands to ever arise from the Crescent City. Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and descended from Neville and Meters family bloodlines, these soldiers of funk ignite a deep, gritty groove that dares listeners not to move. Their performances combine ingenious musicianship through complex funk, rock, and jazz arrangements accompanied by soulful melodies and Big Easy traditions.
