Squirrel Nut Zippers & Dirty Dozen Brass Band Reunite for The Southern Remedies Tour 2022/2023. New Orleans’ most celebrated modern brass band, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, pairs up with the Squirrel Nut Zippers and their multi-platinum blend of 1930s era jazz, swing and folk. For these two groups, breaking molds and charting a new musical course is what helped each attain the highest level of success. The performances by these two critically acclaimed bands make for a delightfully eclectic and entertaining evening, with two sets plus collaboration.
The Squirrel Nut Zippers sold over 3 million albums from 1995 to 2000 and their watershed record Hot was certified platinum. Their musical journey began in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid 1990’s, as a musician’s escape from the cookie-cutter world of modern rock radio. The current all-star cast of New Orleans musicians breathed new life into the old material, and inspired band leader Jimbo Mathus to return to the studio to reignite the band’s unique, enigmatic sound. Their current release Lost Songs of Doc Souchon, was inspired by all of the mysterious characters from the history of New Orleans jazz music. In it are ten new tracks, a combination of newly penned Zippers songs, along with a few tunes from long gone times.
Formed in 1977, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band are the pioneers of the modern New Orleans brass band movement, recognized worldwide as an unstoppable musical machine whose name is synonymous with genre bending romps and high octane performances. They have been featured guests both in the studio and on stage with artists including Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Widespread Panic, Modest Mouse, Dave Matthews Band, and The Black Crowes…and will be joining The Doobie Brothers w/ Michael MacDonald on all of their 2021 and 2022 dates
