Spawned out of a post-Katrina New Orleans searching for a rebirth of its rich musical identity, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk shows that funk is alive by soaking their socially conscious message with funk-nasty soul and Crescent City pride.

It features homages to numerous performers such as Jim Kelly and Rudy Ray Moore, crazy dialogue, and stilted acting.
