Missing Event Data

The American jam band creates a fusion of rock, ska, funk and jazz that has fit well with festival audiences across the country. And after more than a decade together, it’s clear these Arizona boys know how to collaborate and make some funky tunes.

Their latest studio album – For Amusement Only – was released in 2018. But the group is also known for their jam improv’s, having released over 100 recordings of live shows to their “Spaffnerds.” 


Joining the festival powerhouses is the local funk group the Iceman Special. This South Louisiana group had a pretty monumental year in 2019. From the release of their latest album Dr. Dude’s Masquerade Parade, to their nonprofit annual camping festival Fête Du Void, and a performance slot at the 10th anniversary of Electric Forest. 2019 has been the year of The Iceman Special.

Dirty funk meets delicate groove with these guys. They’ve been performing around the city for years. And they blow us away every time.


Don’t miss these two feel-good groups performing on the same night in New Orleans. Spafford and the Iceman Special take over the House of Blues on Sunday, Jan. 19. The show starts at 8:00 pm, and tickets start at $20.
