The Dirty Dozen Brass Band (pictured) are returning to St. Louis to perform at 9:00 p.m., Friday, May 25 at the Old Rock House. Jazz/funk/"world music" band Snarky Puppy will open.
The DDBB last played in St. Louis in February 2011 at the Sheldon Concert Hall. This time around, their show comes just one day after the New Orleans Suspects, a new band featuring DDBB saxophonist Kevin Harris and guitarist Jake Eckert, are scheduled to play the Old Rock House. However, the Suspects are on to Chicago on the 25th, so presumably the DDBB will be using some alternate/substitute musicians for Harris and Eckert here and on some other dates this spring where there's a conflict.
Tickets for the Dirty Dozen Brass band are $18 in advance, $20 day of show, and will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. this Friday, April 13.
