New Orleans' Dirty Dozen Brass Band plays the Music Farm on Thursday, May 28th, at 8 p.m.

The groups crowning achievement came in 2006 a year after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans: The album titled "What's Going On," was an attempt to translate music from Marvin Gaye's 1971 album in their own genre. The bands style of mixing jazz and R & B with traditional music has helped made them popular in the South and beyond.

The Charleston City Paper did an interview with the band way back in 2007, while Marquee Magazine has a more recent interview.

Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance or at the door.
