Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band will take the stage with New Sound Underground and special guest vocalist Arielle Verinis on Saturday, March 1, at The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco. To describe how the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has arrived at its 35th anniversary, trumpet player Gregory Davis employs a tried-and true New Orleans-centric analogy: “It ends up being like a pot of gumbo — you drop in a little okra, drop in a little shrimp, you drop in some crabs. Before you know it, you’ve mixed in all these different ingredients and you’ve got a beautiful soup. That was our approach to music early on and it still is today.” Doors open at 9 p.m., and tickets are $15. Visit for more information.
