Funky Dawgz Brass Band, the Jeff Salisbury Band

When: Fri., Dec. 22, 9 p.m. 2017

After hearing their blend of R&B, hip-hop, funk and jazz, you might be surprised to learn that Funky Dawgz Brass Band are from Connecticut. No disrespect to the Nutmeg State, but the group’s boisterous, horn-heavy style feels like it was lifted straight from the streets of New Orleans, not suburban New England. The group even does a rippin’ rendition of the Big Easy’s unofficial anthem, “When the Saints Go Marching In.” Other noteworthy covers include Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” and Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” — and that’s on top of a solid catalog of originals. Catch the Funky Dawgz Brass Band on Friday, December 22, at Nectar’s in Burlington. Locals the Jeff Salisbury Band open.

Price: $5
