Marc Broussard & The Dirty Dozen Brass Band
Marc Broussard was seemingly destined for a life as a music man. As the son of Boogie Kings guitarist Ted Broussard, his upbringing in Lafayette, LA., instilled in him an affinity for R&B alongside the Cajun trappings of southern Louisiana. He draws vocal and stylistic influence from Otis Redding and Brian McKnight while bearing the preternaturally gruff voice of John Hiatt or Dr. John.
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a New Orleans brass band that revolutionized the New Orleans brass band style by incorporating funk and bebop into the traditional New Orleans style.
