New Orleans’ own Grammy Award-winning Rebirth Brass Band recently celebrated 30 years of brass brilliance in May at The Howlin’ Wolf. Members Phil Frazier, Corey Henry, Glen Andrews, Philip Frazier, Derrick Tabb, Derek Shezbie, Vincent Broussard, Derrick Shezbie, & Byron Bernard have shared their blend of funk and jazz, or “junk’ music around the world for three decades.
According to band founder Phil “Tuba” Frazier, the band has no plans on stopping. “As long as my heart says it’s ok, I can go on and on and on because we love doing it,” he said in a NOLA.com interview.
After 22 years strong, Rebirth can still be found at 10 p.m. every Tuesday night at Maple Leaf Bar on Oak St.
