The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is world famous for their genre-bending romps and high-octane performances that blend top notch chops with their nonstop party vibe. New Orleans' most popular and funkiest Brass Band, "The Dozen" were the first to put their own brass band take on contemporary music, influencing all of the brass bands that followed. The legendary group defies all categorization with collaborations from Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie to Dave Matthews, Widespread Panic and more. Their latest CD, Twenty Dozen (2012) showcases the band's quintessential sound mixed with a heady Carribean flavor.

Formed in 2008, Red Baraat is a pioneering eight-piece band from Brooklyn, New York. Conceived by dhol master Sunny Jain, the group has drawn worldwide praise for its singular sound - a merging of hard driving North Indian bhangra rhythms with elements of Jazz, Go-go, Funk, and Hip-hop. Created with no less a purposeful agenda than manifesting joy and unity in all people, Red Baraat's spirit is worn brightly on its sweaty and hard-worked sleeve. Hailed by NPR's Bob Boilen as "one of the best party bands around," and The Wall Street Journal as "a big band for the world", Red Baraat is guaranteed to get the crowd moving.
