New Orleans’ most celebrated modern brass band, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, pairs up with the Squirrel Nut Zippers and their multi-platinum blend of 1930’s era jazz, swing and folk.  For these two groups, breaking molds and charting a new musical course is what helped each attain the highest level of success. The performances by these two critically acclaimed bands makes for a delightfully eclectic and entertaining evening, with two sets plus collaboration. 


From 1995-2000 the Squirrel Nut Zippers sold over 3 million albums and their watershed record Hot was certified platinum. Their musical journey began in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid 1990’s, as a musician’s escape from the cookie-cutter world of modern rock radio. In 2016 the band emerged from a lengthy recording hiatus with an all-star cast of New Orleans musicians, recorded 10 new tracks and released the album Beasts of Burgundy, breathing new life into the old material and reigniting the band’s unique, enigmatic sound. 


“There is of course jazz of various stripes (mainly pre-WWII varieties) on this deliciously wide ranging comeback, but there’s so much more: Sounds, identifiable and not, emanating from mysterious times and places, not the least of which is New Orleans, their home base, a land that, forever and still, has a mind of its own.” – Relix


Formed in 1977, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band are the pioneers of the modern New Orleans brass band movement, recognized worldwide as an unstoppable musical machine whose name is synonymous with genre bending romps and high octane performances. They have been featured guests both in the studio and on stage with artists including Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Widespread Panic, Modest Mouse, Dave Matthews Band, and The Black Crowes…and will be joining The Doobie Brothers w/ Michael MacDonald on all of their 2021 and 2022 dates


“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.” – The New York Times
