Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, GRAMMY-winning 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 have extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create a signature sound. “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.” 

In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition among New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

Following its Grammy-winning CD Rebirth of New Orleans, Rebirth Brass Band is at it again with Move Your Body, an infectious, groove-laden collection of hip-shakers sure to saturate the dance floor.

Folk singer/songwriter Tim Grimm opens the evening with songs full of the rural rumblings that have shaped his life and that embrace America’s inextinguishable national romance with the idea of the family farm and the vanishing rural landscape.
