Best Performing Artist

As the region’s foremost purveyors of R&B, funk and sweet soul music, Dexter O’Neal and the Funk Yard serve up a musical concoction to get just about any crowd moving. With influences all over the musical map, their chops back up the infectious grooves they lay down: dynamic guitar licks, bursts of saxophone and a steady-driving rhythm section, all anchored by the commanding presence of frontman O’Neal.
