Rebirth Brass Band
The Rebirth Brass Band rose from the streets of New Orleans in the early ’80s to international renown with a mix of the brass-band tradition and a refreshingly modern sensibility. The Rebirth Brass Band mastered the traditional jazz sound of their hometown and then melded it with funk, R&B and, most recently, hip-hop. As capable with spirituals and rags as it is with brass-band boogie, Rebirth is a regular highlight of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival — and a popular recurring favorite here at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, too. As always, the Rebirth Brass Band promises to get the party started Crescent City-style and then take listeners on a stirring ride through traditions old and new.
