The Dirty Catfish Brass Band’s aim is to inspire, create and instigate – but, mostly, they just want you on your feet. Undeniably tight, yet reckless as hell, The Dirty Catfish Brass Band (DCBB) deals in powerful phrasing and irresistible rhythm. Invoking the sounds of the New Orleans brass tradition, the nine-piece collective dares to reimagine the streets of a prairie city as one that is hot, alive, and brimming with soul. The idea that a Southern roots band can be found in the heart of the prairies is a testament to the magic of their musically rich hometown. Based in Winnipeg, MB, the crew strives to surprise, challenge, tickle and pay homage to the New Orleans tradition by giving it a new audience in an unsuspecting locale. Fresh off the release of their new album ‘Brass Riot’, these boys stick to the spontaneity of festivals, alleyway performance and all around late nights – in true Louisiana tradition. The band doesn’t ask permission to play, and the crowd certainly doesn’t ask them to stop.
Dr. Hotbottom is a musical experience not to be missed. Comprised of some of Winnipeg's finest musicians, this 7-piece Funk/Soul band has built a reputation of high energy arrangements drenched in thick vocal harmonies and face melting solos. Featuring members of the Dirty Catfish Brass Band and The Bros.Landreth, it's a unique experience seeing these musicians on a musical playground different from their regular stages.
Established in 2007, Dr. Hotbottom has built a solid following, cutting their teeth in their regular Soul Night at the Cavern in Osborne Village, a bi-weekly Tuesday ritual that is ongoing since 2008. Aside from their regular house gig you will find them playing at various "watering holes" in the Winnipeg Area. They are available for corporate events, weddings and private parties.
