The rock band Cracker, New Orleans’ Dirty Dozen Brass Band and reggae group Iration will perform at the Bud Light Hi-FI Concert Series this winter, the Aspen Skiing Co. announced Monday.

The three newly announced acts complete the lineup for the five-date series. Previously announced artists are SBCR, of the Bloody Beetroots, who will perform at Gondola Plaza on Jan. 24 during the X Games weekend and jam band Umphrey’s McGee, which plays downtown at the corner of Galena Street and Cooper Avenue March 13 during the annual Spring Jam CORE party.

Cracker, best known for its 1993 hit “Low,” will play Feb. 14 at Gondola Plaza.

Dirty Dozen Brass Band, a frequent guest on local stages, will play at Snowmass Base Village on March 21. Most recently, Dirty Dozen played a sold-out show at the Wheeler Opera House on New Year’s Eve.

“We love Colorado. That’s one of our favorite places on the planet,” Dirty Dozen saxophone player and singer Roger Lewis told The Aspen Times before that show. “People love the music up there. It’s something about the spirit in the music.”

Iration, based in Santa Monica, Calif., and known for its 2010 album “Time Bomb” and festival gigs, close out the series March 27 at Snowmass Base Village.

Nashville singer-songwriter Matthew Moon will open both the March 21 and March 27 shows.

This is the 12th season that Skico has presented a season-long series of free concerts in partnership with Bud Light. This season’s shows kicked off Thanksgiving weekend with a performance by Reel Big Fish.
