Rebirth Brass Band
2012 Grammy Award winners the Rebirth Brass Band are a New Orleans institution! Formed in 1983 by the now infamous Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. Rebirth is committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands while at the same time incorporating modern music into their show. 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 and featured in the hit HBO series Treme. In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition amongst brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.
Chicago's Swamp Heat proudly carries on the tradition and sound of New Orleans dance music into the 21st century. Known for their irresistible grooves and heartfelt ballads, the band sheds light on forgotten gems and continues to push the music forward with their own unique voice. After a chance encounter, Chicago native Brandi Sanders has been thrust from the church into the limelight and continues to electrify audiences near and far.
