Storm Warning! A Louisiana thunderhead of Cat-5 brass band funk, jazz, hip hop & boogie is headed to the Bay Area with Grammy winning REBIRTH BRASS BAND playing three huge shows! The world heavyweight champions of brass band music will rock The Independent in San Francisco on Friday December 2. Founded in 1983, Rebirth has thrilled audiences the world over by ‘brasstardizing’ soul, hip hop, pop, latin, and funk music into their own explosive horn-drums concoction. Featuring a blend of foudning members and New Orleans ringers, no other bras sband has ever combined the creativity, energy, and consistency of this crack crew. Openers for this run include Bay Area funk outfit OBJECT HEAVY and seminal funk-remix producer MOTION POTION for the Friday Dec 2 Independent show. Rebirth’s Bay Area appearances typically sell out so we recommend you purchase advance at HUSHconcerts.com
REBIRTH BRASS BAND
“just saw THE REBIRTH BRASS BAND, unbelievable. hard as hell, free as a ray of light, there is not a band on earth that is better. stunning.” – Flea, Red Hot Chili Peppers
For almost 4 decades, the Grammy winning Rebirth Brass Band has been “stunning” fans with a fiery live show and a rich musical catalog. Their trademark sound pays homage to the New Orleans brass band tradition while weaving a tapestry that combines elements of jazz, funk, soul, R&B and the sounds from the streets they grew up on. From their legendary 25+ year run of Tuesday nights at the Maple Leaf to stages all over the world, Rebirth is the soundtrack of the Crescent City and her premier musical ambassador.
Founded by brothers Phil and Keith Frazier over 35 years ago, Rebirth began their career playing on the sidewalks of the French Quarter, and quickly landed gigs at second line parades. Those auspicious beginnings have led to thousands of shows to music aficionados everywhere, including heads of state and royalty.
The bands unique “soundtrack of New Orleans” has also garnered admiration from artists of all genres. They’ve shared the stage and collaborated with everyone from the Grateful Dead to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Maceo Parker, Green Day, U2, James Brown, 311, G-Love, MuteMath, Juvenile, Train, Big Freedia, Ani Difranco, Galactic, Allen Touisant, Neville Brothers, Quincy Jones and Trombone Shorty.
