On Saturday, New Orleans outfit Dirty Dozen Brass Band brings its Louisiana-style jazz and funk to the Tiedemann and Cotton Cabaret Theatre at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall.

The Dozen has performed all over the world since its formation in 1977, including our very own Gasparilla Music Festival in 2017 (see above), with original members trumpeter Gregory Davis, sousaphonist Kirk Joseph, and saxophonists Roger Lewis and Kevin Harris still in the band. For a real treat, check out all seven musicians (I guess seven does a dirty dozen make) squeezing into a small space for NPR’s TIny Desk Concert.

Tickets for the show are sold by the table for up to three guests which includes a charcuterie tray. You’ll be able to order more food and beverage through tableside service. Tables are spaced six-feet apart, there’s a mask requirement and temperatures are being checked at the door.

Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Saturday, April 17, 8 p.m. $100 for a table of three. Tiedemann and Cotton Cabaret Theatre at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater.
