Dirty Water Brass Band

67 Broadway, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Mary Curtin
Saturday, May 12 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Dirty Water Brass Band, a Boston-based undefinable raucous street band, a staunch contributor to the many grooves that make this town tick. We bring our movable block party to you, doesn’t matter where. Our style is eclectic, a mix of second line, soul, R&B, Motown, rock, jazz and more. And we do NOT "have to be in by twelve o'clock!"

This year, Dirty Water is totally psyched to be playing for you on and by the front stoop of the Revolutionary Medical MJ Clinic in East Somerville. Kudos to the city for welcoming such an establishment to this great neighborhood.
