This Chicago group channels the uplifting energy of Sly & the Family Stone, the energy of James Brown and the reflective cool of Marvin Gaye. Led by singers James Johnston, Ava Fain and Tina Howell, they bring together funky big beats, deep bass, lush horns and a heavy organ sound that results in a high-octane musical funk frenzy. Bumpus performs at The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Dune Climb.
The Dune Climb Concert, a project of the Glen Arbor Arts Center, is free, but a National Park Service pass is required for parking. There is no rain location for this concert. For more information about this concert or the entire 2019 Manitou Music series, go to GlenArborArt.org
