Rebirth Brass Band

I absolutely have to represent for my hometown New Orleans.  It doesn’t take much for  party to get started on the streets of New Orleans.  The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Rebirth Brass Band both blend jazz & R&B in the New Orleans style.  I feel a second line coming on!  Feel free to comment on your favorite tracks. And be sure to check out postings throughout the month.
