Here's the attachment to YouTube to 'The Dirty Dozen Brass Band' performing 'Government Mule' ...
There are some great solos featuring: flugel, guitar, bass, saxes & trombone. I really enjoy this group because it's the 'funkiest' group using a sousaphone.
The 'Dirty Dozen Brass' performed with 'The Dave Mathews Band' at the NFL opening day kickoff this year.
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a New Orleans brass band. The ensemble was established in 1977 by Benny Jones together with members of the Tornado Brass Band. The Dirty Dozen Brass band has been a major influence by incorporating funk and bebop into the traditional New Orleans style.
