Tonight we celebrate New Orleans, the birthplace of Jazz, Blues, Gospel, and the many forms of American popular music.

It was out of this societal gumbo that our nation’s musical dna arose.

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is heralded with revolutionizing the New Orleans Brass Band style by incorporating Funk and Bebop into the traditional New Orleans style and extending the music from the Big Easy into the 21st century.

Aaron Neville has moved seamlessly back and forth between solo work and his role in the first family of New Orleans music, the Neville Brothers.

The beloved crooner went on to win Grammy awards for his triple-platinum collaboration with Linda Ronstadt in “Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind.” his most recent recording, “My True Story,” represents a culmination of the soul—r&b legend’s 40-plus year career.

This special event will bring New Orleans to Miami!
