Since their founding in 1977, New Orleans-based Dirty Dozen Brass Band has taken the traditional foundation of brass band music and incorporated it into a blend of genres including Bebop Jazz, Funk and R&B/Soul. This unique sound, described by the band as a “‘musical gumbo,” has allowed the Dirty Dozen to tour across five continents and more than 30 countries, record 12 studio albums, and collaborate with a range of artists from Modest Mouse to Widespread Panic to Norah Jones. Now celebrating more than forty years as a world famous music machine, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band’s name has become synonymous with genre-bending romps and high-octane performances. In 2021, they were honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by Off Beat magazine and have been described by NPR as “an abundance of euphoria.”
