We are pleased to announce that Afroskull will be playing a surprise late-night set at the Krewe du Vieux Ball in New Orleans! Catch us late in the evening on Saturday, February 15th at the Trash Palace on Elysian Fields following a super-jam with Ivan Neville and Big Chief Monk Boudreaux. The party’s theme this year is “Where the Vile Things Are,” so naturally they thought of us. Afroskull fans of New Orleans, your Mardi Gras season just got a little heavier.

15 Years of Monster Funk!!

Afroskull’s 15th Anniversary Celebration – October 6th at the Maple Leaf in New Orleans

It has been 15 years since Afroskull, the original monsterfunksters, first took it to the stage in uptown New Orleans. Come celebrate this milestone with us back where it all started, at the world famous Maple Leaf Bar. Founding members Joe Scatassa, Bill Richards and Jason Isaac will be joined by a few of their most fiendishly funky friends to bring you two sets jam packed with a decade and a half’s worth of progressive funk-rock.
