Rebirth Brass Band
Whether seen on ​ HBO’s​ Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they also extended into the realms of funk and hiphop to create their signature soul moving sound. Their signature brand of heavy funk has not only won over several generations of music lovers, it has become the soundtrack to an entire city.

Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they have also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “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.

Following the Grammy-winning Rebirth of New Orleans, Rebirth Brass Band is at it again with Move Your Body, an infectious, groove-laden collection of hip-shakers sure to saturate the dance floor.

Rollicking originals like "Who's Rockin, Who's Rollin'"? and "Take 'Em to the Moon" reaffirm the band's position as head of the brass throne while the rasta-esque "On My Way" and leave-nothing-to-the-imagination lyrics of "HBNS" showcase the unit's talent for penning unabashed party starters.

Boasting a mastery of Rebirth's signature "heavy funk" sound, Move Your Body pushes and swings, leaving behind an 11 track thumbprint, approved by the Frazier brothers themselves, of a sultry Tuesday night spent dancing on their home court at the Maple Leaf Bar in New Orleans.

"Just saw THE REBIRTH BRASS BAND, unbelievable. hard as hell, free as a ray of light, there is not a band on earth that is better. stunning."

-@flea333, Red Hot Chili Peppers

"...saw the Rebirth Brass Band playing at the Maple Leaf Bar on Oak Street, and it changed my life. It was one of these transcendent musical experiences."

-Ani DiFranco
Remember Jones
Remember Jones
Remember Jones is a one-of-a-kind soul/pop singer, storyteller and bandleader with a throwback vibe and authentic energy that bring audiences to another time and place. Collaboratively supported by a double-digit sized band centrally from Asbury Park, NJ where they have a stronghold on it's large, thriving music scene, he has packed popular venues such as THE STONE PONY, ASBURY LANES, THE SAINT, CONVENTION HALL and THE PARAMOUNT THEATRE. He has been awarded TOP VOCALIST in the Asbury Park Music Awards, directed and debuted as HEDWIG in HEDWIG IN THE ANGRY INCH for Asbury Park's first long-running theatrical production, and has produced, music directed, and supported many local acts, rock musicals, and touring bands (most recently a string of sold-out dates with Buster Poindexter).

The band's DEBUT ALBUM, "Ladies and Gentlemen, Remember Jones!", available via CDBaby, iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, and other outlets, was created after raising close to $19,000 through nearly 300 small donations via Indiegogo, and created in front of a live studio audience with a 25-piece band. It was released in May 2016 at Asbury Park's Convention Hall, the first independent local band to play this venue in many, many years. POPDOSE calls the album "...uncanny magic... remarkable vocalist... Remember Jones is heading for big things."

He fronts a tribute project "back to BACK TO BLACK", a recreation of the entire AMY WINEHOUSE album with an orchestra of 15-25 musicians that has SOLD-OUT 3 times in Asbury Park, as well as a tour of the show packing venues in Brooklyn, Detroit, Louisville, Nashville, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and more, including a sold-out show at LINCOLN HALL in Chicago that was streamed live by AUDIOTREE. He has SOLD-OUT a theater re-creation of JOE COCKER's MAD DOGS & ENGLISHMEN with a 20-piece band and was the first ever to present and sing R. KELLY's TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET LIVE alongside a 20-piece orchestra. His work with GRAMMY-nominated guitar legend and songwriter GARY LUCAS will lead to upcoming recordings of unreleased JEFF BUCKLEY material, following a successful string of dates recreating the entire GRACE album this past summer (Lucas co-wrote "Grace" and "Mojo Pin"). A recording session with Daytrotter was released in February 2017.
