Dirty Dozen Brass Band playing Antone’s Saturday!

If you ask anyone from New Orleans, they’ll know the Dirty Dozen. They’ll probably love them. They’ll probably laugh at you for asking such a ridiculous question, so maybe don’t. I first heard them 2 years ago when they played a killer set at the Columbus Jazz & Ribs Fest, where New Orleans funk isn’t exactly the most prominent on the music scene. They got everyone moving and funky and I’ve been a huge fan ever since. You don’t need to know anything about jazz or brass bands to know they play fantastic music and will always put on an outrageous party. See for yourself:

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band has actually been around since the late ’70s and still continues to get more and more popular, now a world famous music powerhouse. The brass band began in 1977 as the house band to the Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club in New Orleans. Social and Pleasure clubs date back to over a century when black southerners could barely afford life insurance and the clubs would provide funeral arrangements and traditional Crescent City brass bands would often play following the funeral procession. They’ve been carrying on their brass band roots even during a time when noone wanted to book them. Now they’re releasing a re-mastered 25th anniversary album called My Feet Can’t Fail Me Now, and it’s hot. I dare you to listen and remain still– impossible.

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band will be bringing their funktastic show to Antone’s this Saturday! Click “I like it” on the Do512 page to enter to win a pair of free tickets!
