The 1800's, and Today
Formed in 1985 by Alexander Pollack, the Dodworth Saxhorn Band is based in Ann Arbor, Michigan and is a recreation of a community brass band of the mid-1800's. Our band has been performing since 1985 and has released two music CDs. You may have heard our music on Ken Burns' popular Baseball series that aired on Public Television.
The Dodworth Saxhorn Band has played for a variety of occasions including Victorian balls, parades, and social events. Learn more about booking the Dodworth Saxhorn Band.
