Event Details

About the Band

Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, The Dodworth Saxhorn Band (DSB) is a re-creation of a 19th-Century ensemble based upon the acclaimed Independent Band of New York City, which was founded by the Dodworth family in 1825. This original Dodworth band was the premier brass band in the United States from the 1840s through 1880s.

DSB recreates the fun and atmosphere of a brass band concert from this era when live entertainment was the norm and not the exception. Wearing period costume and playing period instruments, DSB serves to entertain and educate its audiences through programs composed of scripted scenes that address many of the social and political issues of the 19th Century. These include various aspects of the Civil War, immigration, the suffrage and temperance movements, and even baseball.

Through music and dialog DSB strives to bring America’s past to life.  The Dodworth Saxhorn Band is represented by Great Lakes Performing Artist Associates. greatlakespaa.org
