Description: Squirrel Nut Zippers: Their musical journey began in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid 1990s as a musician’s escape from the cookie-cutter world of modern rock radio at the time. Jimbo Mathus, along with drummer/percussionist Chris Phillips, formed the band as a casual musical foray among friends and family in the area. It wasn’t long before the band’s quirky mix of jazz chords, folk music and punk rock leanings spread out of the region and attracted a national audience. The Squirrel Nut Zippers sold over 3 million albums from 1995-2000 and their watershed record “Hot” was certified platinum. The Squirrel Nut Zippers are inspired by the city of New Orleans, the poet Ron Cuccia and a disregard for convention. The Dirty Dozen Brass Band: Celebrating over 40 years since their founding in 1977, New Orleans-based Dirty Dozen Brass Band has taken the traditional foundation of brass band music and incorporated it into a blend of genres, including bebop jazz, funk and R&B/soul. This unique sound, described by the band as a “musical gumbo,” has allowed the Dirty Dozen to tour across five continents and more than 30 countries, record 12 studio albums and collaborate with a range of artists from Widespread Panic to Norah Jones. Forty-plus years later, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a world-famous music machine whose name is synonymous with genre-bending romps and high-octane performances.
