Dirty Dozen Brass Band
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is the most popular New Orleans style brass band. Founded by New Orleans native, Benny Jones in 1973, the Dirty Dozen BB revolutionized the urban brass band by incorporating funk and bebop to traditional brass band playing. Many New Orleans brass bands have incorporated Dirty Dozen's style and have found inspiration in the funk and jazz aspects to the brass band art.
