    The Bailey School of Music welcomes saxophonist Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones) and his Band of Other Brothers on Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. This cross-genre supergroup blends a variety of influences: the gritty South of the Allman Brothers, the funk of James Brown, the eerie melodies of Pink Floyd, and the improvisation of The Grateful Dead. Besides Coffin, the group also features drummer Jordan Perlson, keyboardist Chris Walters, bassist Felix Pastorius, and guitarist Nir Felder. For a limited time, buy one ticket, get one free!
