KEXP Suggests: Dirty Dozen Brass Band at Jazz Alley 8/2-8/5

Celebrating their 35th anniversary this year, New Orleans’ Dirty Dozen Brass Band remain as vibrant as ever as they continue to tour and record. Currently consisting of Gregory Davis (trumpet/vocals), Kevin Harris (tenor sax/vocals), Kirk Joseph (sousaphone), Roger Lewis (baritone saxophone), Terence Higgins (drums), Kyle Roussell (keyboards) and Efrem Towns (trumpet, flugelhorn), the group’s sets continue to feature a variety of traditional cuts from the New Orleans Songbook alongside original compositions that have proved to be just as electrifying. The band is currently touring behind their newest album, Twenty Dozen, but you can also expect to hear songs from throughout their career, and, of course, a show-stopping rendition of “When The Saints Go Marching In.” The shows will be a both a great experience for longtime fans and a engaging introduction for those who know them as the group that played on that one Modest Mouse album.

KEXP presents Dirty Dozen Brass Band four nights at Jazz Alley starting on August 2nd. Tickets are $26.50. Doors open at varying times depending on the show. Check the Jazz Alley website for more details on showtimes and tickets. Watch a video of the group playing “Dirty Old Man” in 2008 below.
