Dirty Dozen Brass Band & Widespread Panic Play Las Vegas Run Finale

Advertisement

A collaborative three-nights in Las Vegas came to an end last night as The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Widespread Panic once again shared the stage at The Joint At Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The Georgia rockers and NOLA horn ensemble followed Friday and Saturday’s format, joining up to conclude the first set and getting together again for an extensive set two sit-in.

Switching up from the previous two nights, the DDBB horns came out to assist in the first set and just a couple of members returned to augment the second set. The end of set one featured Roger Lewis on baritone sax, Efrem Towns and Gregory Davis on trumpet, Kevin Harris on tenor saxophone and Kirk Joseph on sousaphone sitting-in on Panic’s “Weight of the World,” a cover of the blues classic “Tail Dragger” and the set closing cover of the rarely played Joe Cocker tune “High Time We Went.”

A few songs into set two, the trumpeters Davis and Towns emerged to help WSP on Traffic’s “Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys” and “Big Wooly Mammoth” before turning the stage over to drummer Duane Trucks for a solo “Drums” segment. A guest-free “Protein Drink” > “Sewing Machine” brought an end to the second set and “Expiration Day” paired with ”Climb To Safety” took up the encore slot for the last night in Vegas. Sunday’s show was also notable for a jam on The Allman Brothers Band’s “Mountain Jam” that came out of “The Last Straw” in the first set.
