NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Dirty Dozen Brass Band trumpeter Efrem Towns is recovering at home in New Orleans from a vicious attack by a dog in an Atlanta motel.
He missed performances in Colorado and New Orleans after the attack on Nov. 18, and tells The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/XOJoNr) that he doesn’t know if he’ll make the band’s next scheduled gig on Dec. 28.
Towns was transported to Grady Hospital, where he received 30 stitches in his groin.
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band formed in 1977, and is credited with creating the contemporary, funk-infused brass band sound. It’s been featured on albums with David Bowie, Elvis Costello and the Black Crowes.
