The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is
perhaps the only group that can claim to have shared stages with the Grateful
Dead, Elvis Costello, Miles Davis, Al Jarreau, 2 Live Crew, and the Black
Crowes. They're credited with revitalizing the brass band tradition in New
Orleans, spreading it around the world, to more than
30 countries on five continents.
They’ve been featured guests on albums by David
Bowie, Elvis Costello, Dr. John and the Modest Mouse; and the city of New
Orleans now has an official Dirty Dozen Brass Band
Day. The group is celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut My Feet
Can’t Fail Me Now, and preparing for the release of a new album in April.
