Ian Neville is the guitar player in New Orleans premiere funk band, Dumpstaphunk. Growing up as a member of the royal family of New Orleans music has come with its challenges, but Ian has been equal to them and manages to walk the line between being a regular New Orleanian and avoiding his nightmare scenario of extreme fame coupled with extreme poverty.
Mark Bologna grew up as a die-hard New Orleanian too. His parents, who were "Kids when they married and kids when they had me," owned the renowned Teddy's Grill in Gentilly and Mark grew up cooking without knowing that's what he was doing. After 15 years away working for the V.A. Mark has returned to New Orleans where, among other things, he hosts the popular local podcast Beyond Bourbon Street.
