Dirty Dozen Brass Band

DDBB 20doz Promo1 150x150

“For more than two decades, their ability to be funky - to play complex syncopated rhythms with a carefree flair that automatically makes listeners want to get up and dance – has never been in doubt. Although the Dirty Dozen uses traditional instrumentation, it doesnʼt sound traditional. By incorporating elements of modern jazz, pop, R&B and other genres into its style, the band has kept fresh what could easily have become a stodgy, time- bound formula. ...the Dirty Dozen Brass Band continues to be a national treasure: steeped in both the past and the present, impossible to categorize, and mighty funky.” - New York Times
