Barbary Coast Dixieland Show Band—Farewell Tour
Tickets: Adults $31 each. To reserve seats for your group or order a gourmet lunch and show, please call 952-948-6524.
First organized in 1967, the original Barbary Coast Band performed at Jimmy's on the Levee in downtown St. Paul for standing room crowds. That lasted about five years, after which they spread their talents to performing at the Minnesota State Fair, Mississippi River Paddlewheel boats, Diamond Jim's (a former music club on St. Paul's Sibley Memorial Highway) and corporate events. In 1984, the group opted to perform Dixieland church services on about 40 Sunday's each year. Since 2000, when some members retired from their day jobs, the Barbary Coast Dixieland Show Band has been out performing at jazz festivals and enjoying their 2001 induction in to the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame.
After 51 years, the band is playing their last shows in 2018. Come see this highly respected group of musicians and tap your toes along to the infectious quality of the lively music. The musicians enjoy performing together and the music is guaranteed to lift your spirits.
Remaining shows at the Ives Auditorium are at 1:00 pm on July 26, August 16 and August 22.
