Band Website:

Rebirth is New Orleans. Founded in 1983 by tuba/sousaphone player Philip Frazier, drummer Keith Frazier, and legendary trumpet player Kermit Ruffins, this nine-piece band of “funk heavy-hitters”  is a NOLA institution, with a packed-out weekly gig at the Maple Leaf Bar in Uptown New Orleans and regular U.S. and European tours.

How does Rebirth sound? Let’s put it this way: if you don’t dance, you’ll dance to Rebirth–you don’t have a choice. A blaring tuba bass line anchors two lines of swinging horns, playing the band’s originals and inimitably funky takes on much-loved standards. Now thirty years old and counting, Rebirth is proof that some brass bands always keep it fresh.
