Rebirth Brass Band Brings the Party to Skyloft on Aug 4th
Rebirth Brass Band is playing at Skyloft at Crossgates Mall this Sunday, August 4. Bringing their funky, hip hop and still traditional brass band sound up from New Orleans, Skyloft is noted as one of the most versatile brass bands on the scene.
Known for their playing in HBO’s Treme, the Grammy award-winning group was formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers. They have played the streets of New Orleans’ French Quarter but also been hosted internationally.
“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 they show no signs of slowing down.
Advance ticket purchase is recommended. Doors open at 7 pm, with the show at 8 pm.
