Dirty Dozen Brass Band Back in Baton Rouge
The members of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band were on tour when Katrina hit their native New Orleans and while some lost personal possessions, the group is in good health and continuing to perform. This evening marks a notable occasion as the Dozen returns to Louisiana for a one-off gig at SoGo Live in Baton Rouge. The group is then off for two weeks before beginning its fall tour in Huntsville, AL with the Big Spring Jam. During the two week window of open dates, guitarist Jamie McLean will gig with his Jamie McLean Band. He will travel up from Louisiana on Saturday to perform at New Yorks Knitting Factory, followed by shows in the northeast and then into the midwest with three opening slots for the North Mississippi Allstars.
