Dirty Dozen Brass Band

Dirty Dozen Brass Band

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.”

Baritone sax player Roger Lewis — who, like Davis, has been with the combo since its inception in 1977 — echoes that sentiment: “It’s a big old musical gumbo, and that probably made the difference, separating us from other brass bands out of New Orleans. It put a different twist on the music. We were not trying to change anything, we were just playing the music we wanted to play and not stay in one particular bag.”

An appetite for musicological adventure, a commitment to honor tradition while not being constrained by it, and a healthy sense of humor have brought the world-traveling Dirty Dozen Brass Band to this remarkable juncture in an already storied career. To celebrate its 35th, the band is releasing Twenty Dozen, the septet’s first studio release in six years.

Nicholas David

Alternative Soul music from the heart- for the heart. Nicholas David Mrozinski is a vibrant, dynamic, and multi-talented singer/songwriter/pianist from Saint Paul, MN. For more than a decade, Nicholas has been making music that has been connecting with people, all around the world, on a deeply human level. Nicholas was most recently a finalist, and a fan favorite, as a member of team CeeLo on NBC's Season 3 of The Voice.

Nicholas' music is fully integrated, incorporating many schools of music and thought. His powerful voice, enriching lyrics, and liquid piano playing truly set him apart and are the reason Skope Magazine calls him "an authentic artist of this millennium." His one-of-a-kind sound is passionate, captivating, intelligent, diverse, genuine, fresh, and he truly 'feels' it. It's no wonder why his thriving Twin Cities music scene affectionately refers to him as "the feelin".

With 5 studio albums, national radio play, amazing reviews, many great charity & collaborative efforts under his belt (all prior to his amazing run on The Voice) Nicholas has just released a new 4-song EP on iTunes featuring his single "Say Goodbye." He plans to release a studio album in early 2014, followed by a national tour.
