In case you missed them last night, you can catch NOLA’s Rebirth Brass Band today (7/9) at noon for a free concert as part of BAM’s Rhythm & Blues Festival at MetroTech.
BAM says: One of the indispensable staples in the New Orleans music scene, Rebirth Brass Band is known for their vintage, tuba-driven style that incorporates funk, soul, jazz and hip-hop into a classic march-music repertoire. Formed in 1983, the band has gone from marching the streets of the French Quarter to playing sold-out shows around the world. Committed to maintaining the traditional “second line” style, Rebirth grants their heavy funk and irresistible groove a relevance that resonates with old-school fans and first-time listeners alike.
I hope you went. I hope everyone went! Be on the lookout for the Neville bros…they usually turn up somewhere in the 5 boroughs each summer.
