Soul Kitchen is cooking up a little post-Thanksgiving musical feast. This show will be the perfect way to relieve all the stress accumulated from the retail madness known as Black Friday. Mobile’s Infant Richard & the Delta Stones will open the evening. The Nappie Award-winning local band has established its following with a free-wheeling approach to music. Mingling rock and soul with a little eclectic flair, expect a memorable set with spontaneous rhythm breaks and bridges.
For more than a decade, Ivan Neville and his band, Dumpstaphunk, have performed regularly in Mobile, making them a true Azalea City favorite. The band’s name says it all, because this is the nastiest (in a good way) funk in the world. Neville lives up to his musical family’s legacy with a live show filled with righteous jams. With both bands, the crowd should be able to dance off those extra Thanksgiving calories.
