Dirty Dozen Brass Band & Booker T with Hill Country Revue

dozenOn Friday, April 24th the Backbeat Jazzfest Series will kick off its fourth consecutive season with a high-spirited performance by the legendary Dirty Dozen Brass Band featuring Booker T. Quoted by the Rolling Stone for radically modernizing brass-band music, the members of Dirty Dozen Brass Band were the first to incorporate funk and bebop to traditional New Orleans sounds putting distinctly personal stamps on traditional and familiar material. Joining the Dirty Dozen Brass Band will be Hammond B3 organ alchemist Booker T Jones, one of America's most prolific, distinguished and instantly recognizable musical forces who recently collaborated on his new album with The Drive By Truckers and Neil Young. Get ready for a high-octane performance when New Orleans most prolific modern brass band and organ prodigy Booker T take the stage!
 
 
Following the soulful sounds of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band feat. Booker T will be a performance by THE modern blues band for the new generation, Hill Country Revue. Formed by Cody Dickinson from The North Mississippi Allstars, Hill Country Revue is a product of a very special time for modern Mississippi country blues. The band is a collective of musicians from the fertile soil of North Mississippi who have grown up living and breathing the folk music of African fife and drums that dates back to the birth of the nation.
