The Grammy Award-winning Rebirth Brass Band brings the music of New Orleans to Saratoga!
Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, the Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed by the Frazier brothers in 1983, the band has long since graduated from the streets of the French Quarter to theaters and festivals all over the world. In addition to their commitment to uphold the tradition of brass bands, Rebirth’s music also extends into the the more modern realms of funk and hiphop to create their own signature, soul moving sound. This has placed them among the world’s top brass bands and they are the hands-down favorite among the younger generation. In reference to the sometimes-stringent competition amongst brass bands, Offbeat magazine remarked, “…it’s clear that Rebirth, which boasts 10 albums and has traveled the world, is the band to beat (July 2001).
Rebirth Brass Band have continued their innovative, contemporary approach to New Orleans music following up 2012’s Grammy Award-winning album Rebirth of New Orleans with 2014’s Move Your Body which was released on Basin Street Records. Since its release, the record hit #1 and has been at the top of both the CMJ & Jazz Week Radio charts.
Over their 35-year career, Rebirth has not only won over several generations of music lovers, their music has become the soundtrack to an entire city.
