Band: Flavor Fest on Dauphin
Date: Saturday, Oct. 5, at 2 p.m.
Venue: Lower Dauphin Entertainment District
Mobile’s desire for an October music festival in the streets of Downtown Mobile has reached its next stage in the form of Flavor Fest on Dauphin. This new fall music fest incarnation comes from the same people who brought TenSixtyFive to the denizens of the Azalea City.
Flavor Fest on Dauphin is more than just a free music festival. This event promises to provide the public with a chance to “taste the most flavorful beverages on the market at over 20 bars and restaurants on Dauphin.” While this street party may not feature the same extensive lineup as BayFest or TenSixtyFive, Flavor Fest on Dauphin organizers have selected a diverse lineup of local favorites from the Azalea City and beyond.
One of Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk’s first live shows happened in Mobile. Locals fell in love with this group’s raw, Crescent City funk. Since then, Dumpstaphunk’s notoriety as a modern funk trendsetter continues to grow. Dumpstaphunk will bring a large helping of new-school New Orleans funk shaped by one the city’s most legendary artists.
The Tip Tops will also be adding their brand of sonic flavor to the mix. This Azalea City party band’s repertoire of funk, soul and rhythm and blues allows them to pack the house wherever they play. The crowd should be impressed with this band’s fresh take on familiar songs.
The multiple Nappie Award-winning Red Clay Strays will add a little Southern-fried country rock to the fest. Over the past year, this energetic musical collective has remained on the road. Hopefully, the band will entertain the crowd with original cuts from their long-awaited album.
Another Nappie Award-winner will bring a smooth ribbon of soul and R&B with an indie edge to the festival. Yeah, Probably’s dedication to its sound has made it one of Mobile’s most unique bands. Flavor Fest on Dauphin’s festival setting should be the perfect place to catch their performance.
