Rebirth Brass Band start tour this week, offer free single


Brass bands may not be able to compete with the whirring guitars of indie rock but their songs definitely can. Rebirth Brass Band is on the forefront of bringing the style back into popular music. If the name sounds familiar, you probably watch a lot of HBO. The band appeared on the series Tremé, putting them on an upward journey from playing on street corners to selling out music halls.  Rebirth Brass Band’s upcoming album Rebirth of New Orleans shows the band’s journey to this point and their take on the revival of the genre. It’s loud, it’s lively, and the band makes the music come alive with each ringing note.

Take a listen for yourself by downloading the Rebirth Brass Band single “Do it Again” here, or streaming it below. Rebirth of New Orleans comes out April 12 on Basin Street Records. The band is also participating in a variety of jazz festivals across the country on their spring tour.
