• Say what you will about Dennis Bailey and his politics. At least he’s got good taste in music.

Bailey, a high-profile political consultant, fronts the Bob Dylan tribute band The Bob Band at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Dog Fish Bar & Grille, 128 Free St., Portland. Dylan turns 70 on Tuesday, and Saturday’s show will celebrate the milestone.

The Bob Band plays Dylan tunes from throughout his 50-year career. Bailey sings lead vocals and plays guitar and harmonica. Roy Fox plays lead guitar, Bryan Litchfield is on drums, and Mary Maravic plays upright bass.
