Rebirth Brass Band have continued their innovative, contemporary approach to New Orleans music following up 2012’s The Grammy Award winning album Rebirth of New Orleans with 2014’s Move Your Body which was released on Basin Street Records this past June. Since its release, the record hit #1and has been at the top of both the CMJ & Jazz Week Radio charts. Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution.
Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they also extended into the realms of funk and hip hop to create their signature soul moving sound. Their signature brand of heavy funk has not only won over several generations of music lovers, it has become the soundtrack to an entire city.
