If there is a group that knows how to get a party started; it's the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. This New Orleans brass band rocks the house with its trademark style: kinetic hybrid of traditional brass band marches, funk, R&B, bop, gospel and rock.
Formed in 1977, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has set out to preserve two antiquated New Orleans' traditions, Social and Culture Clubs that afforded life insurance to black southerners and Brass bands that accompanied Jazz funerals. A quarter of a century later the Dirty Dozen Brass Band is as ubiquitous as gumbo and jambalaya that the city of New Orleans even has an official Dirty Dozen Brass Band Day. The Band is now a world famous music machine, whose name is synonymous with genre bending romps and high-octane performances.
