Band Brings 'Big Easy' Sound to Hyde Park

New brass group distinguishes itself with New Orleans-inspired music

UChicago Dirt Red Brass Band

The Dirt Red Brass Band, a new student group formed this fall, is jazzing up the UChicago community by bringing New Orleans-inspired music to campus. If you’ve spent any Sunday afternoons south of the Midway, you might have seen or heard the band marching and playing their signature sound. Check out this video for an inside look at what they do, what they hope to accomplish, and how to be a part of it—as well as a sampling of their work. For more information, visit the group's Facebook page.
