Squirrel Nut Zippers Kick Off Midwest Tour Sat. Jan. 25

Squirrel Nut Zippers (SNZ) have announced that they will be, once again, joining forces with The Dirty Dozen Brass Band for a special series of Midwest shows. Kicking off January 25 in Green Bay, WI, the tour will hit such cities as Chicago, Peoria and Omaha before culminating in Kansas City, MO February 1. These select dates will precede the SNZ’s highly-anticipated “Inevitable 25th Anniversary Tour,” which commences March 5. Visit www.snzippers.com for the most up to date ticketing information. 

“The Zippers have always been full of outlandish characters which provides great self-referential material for songs,” said co-founder Jimbo Mathus, whose motto to “let the music lead” still rings true. 

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who toured with SNZ frequently in the 90s, is celebrating more than 40 years of their unique “musical gumbo” sound – a blend of funk, R&B and bebop jazz. Performing in more than 30 countries across five continents and releasing 12 studio albums, the group’s nontraditional sound has led them to collaborate with many artists, including Modest Mouse and Norah Jones.
