Dirty Dozen Brass Band performs at Ringling

October 14, 2012 

SARASOTA -- Although the Dirty Dozen Brass Band had been performing around the Seventh Ward and Uptown New Orleans since 1977, the group's Sarasota show in 1984 coincided with the release of its landmark debut album, "My Feet Can't Fail Me Now."

Twenty-eight years to the day, the ensemble returned to the circus king's old estate to headline the Closing Night Party of the fourth annual Ringling International Arts Festival.
