We regret to announce that due to the impending Nor’easter, Rebirth Brass Band will be unable to make it to Saratoga for their show at Putnam Place. The band was scheduled to fly up from New Orleans on Wednesday morning via NYC and with the impending storm, there was simply no way to make it work as flights are already being cancelled. We promise to reschedule the show as soon as we can and apologize for any inconvenience. All presale tickets will be refunded in the next 24 hours.
The Grammy Award-winning Rebirth Brass Band brings the music of New Orleans to Saratoga as part of the band’s 35-year anniversary tour.
Rebirth Brass Band have continued their innovative, contemporary approach to New Orleans music following up 2012’s The Grammy
Award-winning album Rebirth of New Orleans with 2014’s Move Your Body which was released on Basin Street Records this past June.
Since its release, the record hit #1and has been at the top of both the CMJ & Jazz Week Radio charts. 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.
