Formed over 30 years ago by Phil and Keith Frazier, and Basin Street Records labelmate Kermit Ruffins, the Rebirth Brass Band are not only a world-renowned institution, they were at the forefront of a brass band revival that now includes countless bands across the States and the rest of the world playing that familiar and beloved New Orleans sound. 

I’ve seen Rebirth twice, and they’re one of the world’s finest and funkiest brass bands, whose sound employs elements of hip-hop and funk, as well as jazz. Check out this live footage of the boys playing “Rebirth Groove,” one of their live standards and the latest single off the band’s newest album, Move Your Body.

This particular version was shot during one of the group’s many New Orleans sets and it has a much different, more raucous energy than any of their other sets.
