To describe how the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has arrived at its 35th Anniversary, trumpet player Gregory Davis employs a tried-and true New Orleans-centric analogy: “It ends up being like a pot of gumbo – you drop in a little okra, drop in a little shrimp, you drop in some crabs. Before you know it, you’ve mixed in all these different ingredients and you’ve got a beautiful
soup. That was our approach to music early on and it still is today.”

Join SteelStacks High School Jazz Band winners North Penn Columbia Jazz Band as the opening act this evening!
