The Dirty Dozen Brass Band

As both proud purveyors of the New Orleans brass-band tradition and genre-defying experimentalists, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has spent the last quarter-century bringing the noise and funk to some pretty unlikely places. From Widespread Panic and the Black Crowes to David Bowie and Modest Mouse, this brazen bunch of musical eclecticists has been the big brass gun for hire for any artist looking to inject his or her sound with a daring dose of Crescent City cooking. But even on its own, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band is just as potent as a juicy hot pepper sitting on top of a big bowl of red-hot jambalaya, ready to hit its audience with enough heat to melt the masses and move their asses for hours on end.
