Reminiscent of James Brown, and Sly and the Family Stone, Diggin Dirt, is a band that is very well known around Humboldt County and the whole West Coast for uniquely blending together their influences that range from funk to blues to reggae to psychedelic-rock, to make something that is all together new and old sounding, in the best way possible. Diggin Dirt is a 7-piece band with tight horns and an even tighter rhythm section and they never fail to keep the dance floor moving all night long. Excitement, top notch stage presence, and high quality original songs are sure to be delivered in more than adequate dosages with Diggin Dirt on stage. Whether you intend to or not, Diggin Dirt will have you moving from your head to your toes if you happen to find yourself in the same room as this extremely funky powerhouse of a band.

The White Blinds are a blistering hot Soul Jazz Organ Trio, Bringing you those gritty soulful sounds of the 60’s and 70’s.
Emerging from the tight-knit Los Angeles Funk and Soul community, The White Blinds are one of the newest true Organ Trios to carry the torch of instrumental musicin the city of Angels.
The White Blinds pay homage to the classic soul jazz sound of the 60’s and 70’s with a splash of New Orleans groove and Afro-Funk overtones.
For lovers of Dr. Lonnie Smith, Charles Earland, and The City Champs, this trio led by drummer and percussionist Michael Duffy (Jungle Fire, Ozomatli), with Organist Carey Frank (Tedeschi Trucks), and Guitarist Matt Hornbeck, have come together to form a tight and soulful ensemble, filtered through the lens that is uniquely Los Angeles.
Their forthcoming debut LP “Get To Steppin” is out now on Southern California’s premier Soul, Jazz, and Funk vinyl record label, F-Spot Records. The album features ten songs consisting of nine originals and one take on the classic tune “Blue Juice” by Jimmy McGriff.
