Dirty Dozen Brass Band Joins Widespread Panic for Rarities

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band joined Widespread Panic for much of its second set last night at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago. The DDBB, which opened the show, performed with Panic during a notable run that began with ‘Coconut,’ followed by Panic’s debut of Frank Zappa’s ‘Joe Garage’ which segued into ‘Wild Thing’ (a song the group had not played since 10/24/85) and then back into ‘Joe’s Garage.’ The brass-abetted Panic then launched into ‘Ball of Confusion’ which it had last performed twelve years earlier on Halloween 1989 (‘Ball of Confusion’ is Norman Whitfield/Barrett Strong tune which the Temptations took to #3 on the pop charts in 1970). Following ‘Ball of Confusion,’ Dirty Dozen drummer Terrence Higgins remained on stage for ‘Drums.’
Widespread Panic will perform evening at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul, MN with Dirty Dozen Brass Band, opening the show once again.
