For more than three decades, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band has produced a unique and lively sound. The band’s latest CD, “Twenty Dozen,” features a seamless blending of such genres as R&B, jazz and funk, plus Afro-Latino grooves, some Caribbean flavor and even a Rihanna cover. Baritone sax player Roger Lewis calls “Twenty Dozen” classic Dirty Dozen.
“It’s got something for your mind, body and soul,” he said in the release. “We’re gonna get you one way or another.”
Guitar great Duke Robillard is scheduled to headline “Blues Under the Stars” Thursday, June 20, at Brookhaven Village, 3700 W Robinson St. Called “one of the great (guitar) players” by BB King, Robillard has played alongside such other music legends as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Jimmy Witherspoon.
