New Orleans during Jazz Fest provides the ultimate platform for artists to pay tribute to their favorite bands, musicians, and songwriters. The city is hallowed grounds for any musician, as it is ground zero for jazz, funk, and the improvisation that acts as the core of today’s live music scene. For Michelangelo Carubba, drummer in the power-funk group Turkuaz, the impetus to pay homage to his influences while in New Orleans was so strong that, instead of picking between his favorite bands, he decided to pay tribute to two of them at once! Z-Funk: A Tribute To Led Zeppelin & Parliament Funkadelic will feature unique arrangements of songs by Led Zeppelin and P-Funk, with an all-star band that features some of the best and funkiest players he could find. Z-Funk will take place on Sunday, April 29th (technically early AM 4/30) immediately following Aaron Johnston‘s electronic improvisation project, J.E.D.I. (Jazz Electronic Dance Improvisation) at the same venue, Maison on Frenchmen Street.For this special performance, Carubba will be joined by pedal steel master Roosevelt Collier and guitar prodigy Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, who will team up to form a high-octane dual-guitar attack. Steve Swatkins of Allen Stone‘s band will be on keys, and will surely make use of his talkbox skills as well. Rob Walker, bassist from The Main Squeeze, will hold down the low end, while Carubba’s partner in Turkuaz, Shira Elias, will provide vocals. Finally, Snarky Puppy‘s Mike “Maz” Maher and Chris Bullock will provide some much-needed brass on trumpet and saxophone, respectively.With so many amazing songs in each band’s repertoire, the night will surely feature hit song after hit song. Carubba has proven himself as a uniquely motivated bandleader, concocting many special tribute shows in New York City, Colorado, and elsewhere over the past few years. He has promised to have a few tricks up his sleeve for this show, and by leaning on the catalogs of Led Zeppelin and P-Funk, has crafted the perfect way for those in attendance to close out weekend one of the marathon that is New Orleans Jazz Fest.Carubba, for one, is excited to bring this concept to life, telling L4LM:“Both bands hit hard. Both bands hit on the one a whole lot. That’s funky to me. That’s funky to everyone whether they know it or not. John Bonham knew. People consider him a rock drummer, but that’s a funky mother f*cker. So we’re gonna be on the one all night long. And this band I assembled is truly great.”Tickets for this show are on-sale NOW at this link.

Scott Shafer was fired Monday as Syracuse’s head coach. He’ll coach his final game for the Orange on Saturday against Boston College. Shafer’s three seasons at the helm were marked with early success and plenty of potential, but his final two seasons on the job have been a struggle. With one game remaining, Shafer has a 13-23 record as Syracuse’s head coach.Here’s a look at some of the key moments of the Scott Shafer era.Jan. 9, 2013: Scott Shafer is officially hired as Syracuse’s head coach, replacing Doug Marrone, who left abruptly to become the head coach of the Buffalo Bills. Shafer brought a sense of excitement to the program at his introductory press conference despite having to replace nearly the entire coaching staff.Dec. 27, 2013: Syracuse wins the Texas Bowl, capping off a 7-6 season to start Shafer’s time at Syracuse. The Orange defeated Minnesota 21-17 for Syracuse’s third bowl win in four years.Oct. 4, 2014: Shafer promotes Tim Lester to offensive coordinator after demoting George McDonald. The move came after Syracuse had scored 20 or more points just twice in its first five games. McDonald said he wouldn’t have taken the offensive coordinator job at SU if he had known he’d be relieved of his duties so soon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNov. 8, 2014: Following a 17-point loss to Duke that eliminated the Orange from bowl contention, Shafer had another impassioned press conference. This time, the coach left the podium chipped after he was asked if the season was a disappointment. Shafer smashed the podium with his fist, saying the goal coming into the season was to win eight games.Sept. 26, 2015: Syracuse loses by 10 points to then-No. 8 LSU. Excitement for the season was arguably at its peak after the Orange started the season 3-0, and followed it with an impressive performance against the Tigers despite playing with a walk-on quarterback.Nov. 7, 2015: Syracuse loses to Lousiville on the road in a blowout, but the bigger story is the health of freshman quarterback Eric Dungey. He was knocked out of the game with a head injury while playing down 31 points with about four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Asked after the game why he left Dungey in, Shafer said he wanted to go for the comeback. Dungey had previously missed time in the season, and has taken multiple hits to the head since then.Nov. 21, 2015: In what turns out to be his penultimate game as head coach, Shafer and Syracuse lose 42-29 at N.C. State. The loss is the eighth in a row for the Orange on the year, and tempers boil over during the game. Shafer was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for the second game in a row, wide receiver Steve Ishmael was ejected for a pair of unsportsmanlike conduct penalties and wide receiver Brisly Estime was ejected for fighting.
