Dirty Dozen to Talk and Play This Evening


This evening, September 23, 2009 in the latest installment in the Louisiana Humanity Center’s brass band oral history project, the legendary Dirty Dozen Brass Band sits down to discuss the origins, innovations, and perseverance of one of New Orleans’ greatest bands.

This live recording session features a panel discussion with Dr. Matt Sakakeeny of Tulane University, an audience Q&A, and a performance by the band. The “As Told By Themselves” project provides a forum for the bearers of our culture to speak directly to their fellow citizens and to posterity about their music, the brass band tradition, and our city.

Admission is $5, free to students & LEH members.

“As Told By Themselves” is made possible by funding from the Greater New Orleans Foundation and the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.

Doors open at 7pm. Space is limited and seating is on a first-come, first serve basis. The Louisiana Humanities Center is located at 938 Lafayette Street, at the corner of O’Keefe.
