Amp Fiddler and Nigel Hall Band with DJ Funmi

NOLA - Events - Six of Saturns - Amp Fiddler

Detroit's legendary Amp Fiddler makes his New Orleans solo debut a part of his spring Motor City Booty release tour alongside New Orleans by way of D.C. soul provider Nigel Hall

Amp plays at midnight and Nigel warms things up at 10pm. Funmi keeps the the dancefloor balmy. 

Detroit based Amp Fiddler is a celebrated soul/funk musician who has shared stages and studios with everyone from Prince and George Clinton to Primal Scream and underground Detroit producer Moodyman. Amp also played a pivotal role in bringing Slum Village to global attention, and was a friend and collaborator with their producer, the late J Dilla. His warm, expansive mellifluous music takes stylistic cues from all these encounters, but emerges as earthy, supremely relaxed, and rooted in the funk and soul that Amp feels most connected to. And, as he suggests, it is music for the head as much as food for the heart and soul.

Soul provider Nigel Hall is in many ways an artist who needs no introduction. He grew up in Washington, D.C., in a highly musical family. His fingers first touched the keys before he hit kindergarten age, and his ears were wide open. Now nn in-demand sideman, he’s built a mighty foundation of funk over the years onstage and in the studio with collaborators including the Warren Haynes Band, Jon Cleary, Soulive, Oteil Burbridge and Roosevelt Collier, Ledisi, the Soul Rebels, Lettuce and countless others. Legions of fans are already well in the know about Hall’s copious keyboard chops and powerful vocal style. But even to them, his Feel Music/Round Hill debut solo album will be a revelation – a confirmation that Hall has stepped out front and center into a creative space to call his own.

NYC based, New Orleans frequenting DJ Funmi Ononaiye is longstanding member of the music and dance scene on multiple fronts. DJing since the hey days of the mid 1980's, Funmi was drawn to the burgeoning house and world music scenes of the era, playing and promoting much of the best of the sound. Mixing, editing, production, promotion and A&R duties for multiple labels are also a part of his musical background and experience. A purveyor of the soulful side of music, Funmi's love affair with New Orleans and its groove began in 1992 and continues on forever...
