Davell Crawford and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band

Daily from July 10-11
7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Cajun, Funk, Jazz

This classic New Orleans lagniappe (local patois for “a little something extra”) features two Crescent City champs. Known as the Piano Prince of New Orleans, Davell Crawford is a legit heir to the great regional keyboard legacy that runs through Allen Toussaint and Professor Longhair back to Jelly Roll Morton. He’s an accomplished gospel-inflected singer too. Notably clean and fewer than 12, the Dirty Dozen revolutionized New Orleans’ brass band tradition with brash infusions of funk, bop, R&B, and soul; 41 years later their feet haven’t failed them yet.
