The Rebirth Brass Band is a righteous institution. The Grammy Award winning brass band is arguably the very musical soul of New Orleans and Rebirth’s formation in the 1980s has lead to a resurgence of the brass band tradition. Brass is the sound of the second line, a joyous, raucous Big Easy tradition of taking music and dance to the streets. As much as they are an institution, Rebirth stays fresh and appealing to young fans with their incorporation of hip-hop and Latin influences into their upbeat, funky sound. With a band as exuberant as Rebirth, it’s a fact – no amplification required.
